Speech and Drama Programme (P1 and P2)

Lower primary students are given the opportunity to learn the language and increase their self-confidence through drama. This is a fun and effective learning platform. 

Students are exposed to different aspects of oratorical skills so that they are more confident performing and presenting to an audience. This step is taken to encourage the students to use of the language and instil self-belief in them. 

At the end of the program, students will perform and apply what had been learnt in their performance. Singing and acting will be incorporated in the performance. Parents and guardians will be invited to watch the performance.
