“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” Kahil Gibran, 1926, The Prophet

I love this quote as it gives an insight into what our classes are all about. Drama connects people and at its heart is concerned with developing skills and feelings that contribute to a sense of community. Every week in our classes, our students give some of themselves. Some give a lot, whilst others are still learning. That is one of the fantastic attributes of our programme, that students are able to develop at their own pace.

I love going to classes and watching the wonderful interactions that take place. Parents with their children. Children with other children. Parents with parents. Teachers with students and parents. Our classes are a hive of activity and communication. From this communication and interaction there has developed a definite sense of belonging… a sense of belonging to the Helen O’Grady Community.


Mullaloo Community Kindy Drama Incursion

Posted by: | Connect with me on Facebook

We were recently invited into the Mullaloo Community Kindy to run some drama workshops with the students. Janet, Kindy Drama teacher, had a wonderful time with the students as they were introduced to the joys of drama. The students were very busy considering what they might like to do when they grow up. They spent some time being fire fighters, busily climbing ladders and putting out fires! They then turned themselves into the fire. How exciting!

At the end of the incursion, each student had a chance to say what they would like to do when they grow up. One girl promptly said ‘I want to be a Mummy.’ (Ohhhhh.) The next girl happily said ‘I want to be a Daddy!’

If you would like us to come to your Kindy or Primary School and run some exciting Drama Workshops, please contact Justin on 9402 8744 or at  Justin.Lowson@helenogrady.net.au
