Speech & Drama
The Australian Speech Communication Association (ASCA) held their annual award ceremony at Ravenswood School for Girls on Saturday 21 May. 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 Caitlyn Cradock, Brigid Quirk, Akshara Yogesvaran & Ellen Parker all of whom received the Studio Medal for outstanding performances in the Loreto ASCA exams in 2015. Ellen deserves a special mention as she is the first Loreto student to receive 100% in the senior performance certificate. Well done ladies, you are all very deserving recipients of these awards!
