SPEECH AND COMMUNICATION CLASSES – Students in Years 1 – 12

Speech and Communication classes at Clayfield College 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 2017, classes will be offered at Clayfield College on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
