28th June 2012

Árd Scoil students Hannah Power and Sinead O’Donnell and mentor Joan Clancy. Hannah and Sinead were awarded Gold Medals for Outstanding Achievement in Elocution by The Irish Board of Speech & Drama. Árd Scoil na nDéise, Dungarvan is the only school in County Waterford offering speech and drama as a mandatory part of the curriculum for all First Year students.

 

Gold Medals for Outstanding Achievement in Elocution were awarded to Hannah Power and Sinead O’Donnell at the recent examinations held in Árd Scoil na nDéise, Dungarvan. Visiting examiner Sarah Reynolds paid tribute to the high standards, hard work and dedication displayed by all the First Year candidates, and she was extremely impressed by their good clear speech, self-confidence and manners because they all got great marks.

Árd Scoil na nDéise, Dungarvan is the only school in County Waterford offering speech and drama as a mandatory part of the curriculum for all First Year students.

“In Árd Scoil we develop all aspects of the individual student in a caring environment.” says Principal Dorothy Hughes. “The elocution class builds self confidence through improvised drama and short pieces of prose and poetry, not necessarily academic”, explains teacher Joan Clancy. “All of the First Yr students are prepared for individual examinations” adds Deputy Principal Colette Power, “with the emphasis on good communication, courtesy and etiquette. An important life skill which they all love!”
