Newly launched Public Speaking Course
GEA is working with Sydney Speaking School, a successful organisation that focuses on communication skills, to launch a brand new Public Speaking course.
This fun, activity-based course aims to give primary school students a head start on speaking and speech-writing skills before they enter high school. We aim to lay strong speaking foundations by assisting students to develop a confident and engaging speaking manner, with classroom practice. By the end of the course, students will have learned to overcome their fears and lack of confidence, prepare for formal speaking situations, improve their social confidence in interactions and gained many essential skills for school and life beyond.
The Public Speaking Course will be on each Wednesday afternoon 4-6pm. The whole course will last for 9 weeks in Term 2.
Welcome enrollments ! Limited places available.
