Helen O'Grady Academy to Open Mellieha Branch
11th September 2010
Mr Alan Montanaro, Principal of the Helen O’Grady Academy recently announced that the internationally acclaimed development programme through drama will now be available in 6 localities around the island with the introduction of classes in Mellieha.
“The importance of drama as a development tool is indisputable”, explained Mr Montanaro. “Children who learn to speak out clearly and relate enthusiastically and confidently with others develop skills that make the journey through life much easier. We feel it is the Academy’s responsibility to make its product more accessible to more children”.
Classes are already available in Sliema, Attard, Cottonera, B’Kara, San Gwann and now in Mellieha.
The Helen O’Grady Academy provides children between the ages of 3 and 17 with unique opportunities to develop clear speech, fluent delivery and pleasing social skills. The program gives children the confidence to participate in all aspects of their lives, enables them to ask questions, seek answers and share information with others. Children who mix well with others find it easier to make friends and adjust to new situations.
The understanding of English through usage is also a very important by-product of our curriculum.
“The Academy takes a very naturalistic approach to teaching drama”, concluded Mr Montanaro, “we believe in nurturing the innate talents of all our students to ensure each student is encouraged in a warm, positive learning environment”.
