Speech and Drama Lessons
Speech and Drama lessons may assist students to develop confidence for oral assessment in curriculum subjects such as English, Humanities and Drama.

Private Lessons in Speech and Drama are available at the College. Half-hour lessons are offered as individual, shared, or as a group of four depending on syllabus studied and student demand. Group lessons are timetabled outside of school hours, but private and shared lessons are scheduled during class time in a similar way to private music lessons.

Senior Certificate and Rank Score

Speech and Drama Awards above 7th Grade can be added to your Senior Certificate, and may positively affect your Rank Score. For example, in 2013, the achievement of 7th Grade Speech and Drama would have resulted in a Rank Score of 84. (http://www.uq.edu.au/study/docs/domestic/entry-options.pdf)
