Port Elizabeth - Role Play Equips Our Children

The Helen O'Grady Drama Academy has a unique and special way of building incredible learning outcomes into the curriculum without placing performance pressure on our students!  A fair amount of role play takes place in each lesson - sometimes scripted and sometimes improvised, and sometimes individually and sometimes in pair or groups.  

Role play is incredibly powerful when it comes to nurturing skills, and eventually learning outcomes, such as social awareness; problem solving; team work; awareness of one's natural responses as well as awareness of how others respond in situations; building compassion and empathy; leadership and many more.  All these skills are crucial in ensuring our children become young adults able to function well in society, and adapt to an ever-changing and challenging world.
