“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.
