Speech and Drama Tuition

$280.00 NZD

At King’s School, the Arts play an important part of everyday life and every boy is encouraged to be creative, whether it be in visual or performing arts. We provide a unique format for teaching speech and drama to our students.

To supplement and enhance this program we provide pair and group tuition. These are in addition to class programmes and are rotated from week to week to ensure students do not regularly miss the same subjects.

Speech and Drama lessons for Junior school students are conducted after school. 

Middle/Senior school students are able to undertake two activities per week in class time. 

If you have any questions about private speech and drama tuition or wish to arrange speech therapy please contact Nina Burchett via email n.burchett@kings.school.nz .
