Brisbane Grammar School


Speech and Communication classes prepare students for a communication-savvy world, teaching them to be creative and confident speakers.

Classes aim to empower students with effective communication skills and build their self-esteem through public speaking, eisteddfods, AMEB and Trinity College of London examinations, and other fun, imaginative activities. Small group sessions ensure each student is given the time and attention they need.


Group classes will be held at Brisbane Grammar School on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. They are offered before and after school, at morning tea or lunchtime.

If these days don’t suit, but you would still prefer an after-school class, please check the options at my other venues, the Brisbane Powerhouse (Monday afternoon) and Clayfield College (Tuesday afternoon). These are attended by students from a mix of different schools. See the Brisbane Powerhouse and Clayfield College pages for more information.

Students also have the option of taking classes during school hours on a rotation system that ensures they will not miss the same school lesson from week to week. This system has worked effectively for many years and is a great choice for boys with co-curricular activities in the mornings, lunch hours and after school.

CIA’s spectacular shows are always a highlight of the year, taking students on an exhilarating ride through the process of theatre-making. An intensive rehearsal schedule and tuition from theatre professionals culminates in the opportunity to perform in the Visy Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse. Every production is an exciting, hands-on experience for students of all ages, whether they are seasoned performers or new to the stage.

In 2021, we plan to work with the same formula as in 2020. This means working with small groups – a maximum of 20 students in each cast.

We are still in the process of confirming dates and times with the Powerhouse. The full rehearsal and performance schedule will be posted on the Performances page very soon.

Places will be limited, so stay tuned for enrolment details!
