SPEECH AND COMMUNICATION CLASSES – Students in Years 5-10

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.

In 2018, classes will be held at Brisbane Grammar School on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. They are available before school, at morning tea or lunch time.
Students in Years 5 to 8 also have the option of classes during school hours on a rotation system that ensures that students will not miss the same school lesson from week to week. This system has been very effective, and is a great choice for boys with co-curricular activities in the mornings and lunch hours.
