“Our son Max has been attending the Kindy Drama classes for the last two terms and we have had so much fun. Caroline is always an enthusiastic and vibrant teacher who is so inclusive and animated. She has really made each class special and memorable. Thank you so much for a fantastic school incursion program.”
Natasha and Max (Leederville Kindy Drama class)

“Please let Caroline know how much we appreciate her input into all the drama classes this year. She has been consistently friendly, enthusiastic and kind to all the children, and she is so skilled in drawing them out and engaging them in activities. Ethan has enjoyed the classes and has grown in confidence and self esteem during his time with the Academy.  Thank you again for a fun filled learning environment.”
Gill (Leederville Upper Primary class)

“Thank you for your fantastic school incursion program in Drama this term.  The Year 1 children in my class have loved your classes.  I often hear them say “I love Drama!” as we leave your class. The children have developed fine skills in the areas of voice projection, impromptu performance , confidence building and listening. I am impressed at your thorough organisation and your high energy level.I hope to work with you again some time in the future.”
Beth Chesney  (Year 1 teacher, Freshwater Bay PS)

“I wanted to tell you that my eleven year old daughter, Hannah, has to give a talk about her Iran project at school today.  She was practising in front of her Dad and I last night and she was really confident and animated.  She told me she wanted it to be “punchy” and that one of the boys who had presented his in class yesterday, had read off his page in a monotone voice.  I said he was probably terrified and that I used to be like that.  I told her that her drama lessons will be really helpful for her and she agreed totally and then told me “I am really enjoying drama Mum”.  Over the next few years, she is going to have to do more and more school presentations and she agreed that the drama training is perfect to help her with it!”
Lisa (Wembley Upper Primary class)

“I would recommend the Helen O’Grady Drama Academy for all children. My 11 year old daughter and 5 year old son have been going to Helen O’Grady Drama Academy for three terms and have had a lot of fun. They have made new friends, learned new skills and been able to express themselves in a safe and stimulating environment. At the end of each drama class the children couldn’t wait to tell me what they had done, something that rarely happens after school.  The end of year show was a delight to watch. I was able to see first hand the effectiveness of the programme reflected in the quality and professionalism of the performances. Even my five year old was able to show how well he knew all the words and choreography. I hope we will be a part of the Helen O’Grady Drama Academy for many years to come.”
Vidya (Leederville Lower and Upper Primary)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your wife for the absolutely fantastic drama program you run.  Although my daughter, Mia, appears confident and outgoing, inside she is a little shy marshmallow, hence my decision to book her into drama classes.  She has often found it difficult to talk in front of a big audience, such as church or school, but she did fantastically well at the year end play.  She sang all the words and did all the actions and really looked like she enjoyed herself.  The night before, she told me she was worried about getting “stage fright” so we talked about how she performs at drama on Fridays and her play is just like a big drama class with costumes!  Mia has only been coming to your classes this term but I see a difference in her self belief and also, more importantly, a willingness to have a go even when she has those busy butterflies in her tummy.  So, thank you so much for creating a safe and nurturing environment for Mia to explore herself. Mia’s teacher Janet, is just so lovely with the children; sometimes I think she is enjoying herself more than the children and sometimes I want to join in too as it looks like so much fun.”
Lisa (Duncraig Lower)

“Our two boys, Jack and Harry, have thoroughly enjoyed their experiences in their Kindy Drama classes,  and have loved their teacher, Caroline, who is simply amazing – what a woman!  Thank you for the opportunity and exposure to these fabulous drama classes.  We wish you all the best and will happily recommend your classes to others.  Thank you once again.”
Bridget (Subiaco Kindy class)

“Students at City Beach Primary School have participated in drama lessons with teachers from the Helen O’Grady Drama Academy over several years. Voice production and expression, body language and movement, as well as the development of self confidence have been obvious benefits of the program. The children have all loved the experience!”
Sonya Cross  (Deputy Principal, City Beach PS)
