Week 1 of Term 3 is almost complete!

The first week of the term has almost come to an end. What a fun and exciting week it has been! We have loved seeing all our students back after the holidays! And of course it has been wonderful to meet our new students and welcome them into the Helen O'Grady family!

We are looking forward to our classes at First Friends Montessori, Sagewood Pre School & Prep School and in Wierda Park tomorrow (Friday 20 July). Then on Saturday it is off to Beaulieu Prep and Lyttelton.

Favourite quote of the week came from 5 year old Sufyaan from our Erasmia Studio - "Why did Drama take so long to come again?" Quite right Sufyaan the holiday was way too long!!

Students from our Beaulieu Studio Shone on Stage!

Our studio, held at Beaulieu Preparatory School on Saturday mornings, delivered an incredible Parent Day Presentation to happy parents, grandparents and friends! It was so rewarding to see students participating enthusiastically and confidently in every activity.

Our classes aim to promote confidence and communication skills in children aged 3 - 18 years.

Well done to our Annlin Studio on their Glorious Presentation

Our students from our Annlin studio put on a glorious show of the amazing speech and presentation skills they have developed! We are always so proud to see how comfortable our students are in what others may consider a very intimidating environment.

Building confidence, communication skills, creativity, self esteem and presentation skills is what it is all about!
