Because there are no exams, there can no be no failures – only a motivating sense of achievement as we work on a different skill each week
A confident, articulate child finds it easier to make friends, accept new challenges and explore new directions. The Helen O'Grady Academy Upper Primary programme is designed to help each child achieve these invaluable life skills in a safe and fun-filled environment.
Upper Primary students participate in a wide range of creative activities including speech, dramatic movement, improvisation, snippets, scene starters and more.
There are no large-scale productions because we don’t agree that students should pay to attend rehearsals for the one show. Instead special Parents Days are organized at the end of term so that parents can witness, first hand, our wonderful curriculum in action.
At the end of each year they utilise all the skills acquired during the year to create a scripted production, which is performed, for parents and friends.
