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.

All the students are prepared for individual examinations” says teacher Joan Clancy, “with the emphasis on good communication, courtesy and etiquette.

“The elocution class provides an important and most enjoyable platform for encouraging their talents through improvised drama, scripted short pieces and poetry ranging from Steinbeck to Roald Dahl, Shakespeare to Colm Toibín.

“They learn important life skills: how to walk into a room properly, sit down comfortably, speak in a confident manner and perform their chosen piece of drama, poetry or prose.”

”We value all our students as individuals and constantly strive to build up their
self-confidence and self-esteem” explains Deputy Principal Colette Power.

“In Árd Scoil we develop all aspects of the individual student in a caring environment,” adds Principal Dorothy Hughes.
