Speech and Drama

Speech and Drama

The Australian Speech Communication Association (ASCA) held their annual award ceremony at Ravenswood School for Girls on Saturday the 29 April.

The ASCA examinations are an important part of the extra-curricular Speech & Drama program offered at Loreto. They are held in November each year and are performed in front of an audience made up of peers and parents. The exam is designed to help the development of oral communication and listening skills. Each exam incorporates an oral presentation on a subject in which the candidate has a special interest: readings and/or memorisations from relevant prose, poetry and/or drama; impromptu speeches and exchange of ideas with the audience, and much more.

Congratulations to Eloise Carey Year 8 and Amelie Mauri-Dooris Year 7 who received the Studio Medal for achieving the highest marks in the ASCA exam and to Alexandra O’Brien Year 6, Genevieve Hadwen Year 8 and Zoey Hartshorne Year 8 who were awarded the Studio Achievement Award for exceptional preparation and consistent effort throughout the year.  

Well done, you are all very deserving recipients of these awards!
