When asked for her thoughts, Tanya Boey (Senior Speech & Drama Specialist) said, “Lucas is an attentive and diligent student. Always cheerful and positive and he is never afraid to take on new challenges. Most of all, I had fun teaching him.”
Once again, congratulations to all our students and we hope that you will be able to benefit from the valuable life skills imparted to you via the Helen O’Grady Speech & Drama Programme.
