Over 100 Prizes Received At Wynnum-Manly Speech & Drama Eisteddfod


Our Junior and Secondary Drama students recently took to the stage at the Wynnum-Manly Speech and Drama Eisteddfod and achieved outstanding results, receiving an incredible haul of over 100 trophies, medals, bursaries and prizes. Students from Prep to Year 10 competed in a variety of performance sections over the eight-day period, allowing them to showcase their technique across a range of dramatic styles. Students competed in the various genres of Poetry, Prose Recital, Character Recital, Duologue, Storytelling, Impromptu Speaking, Improvisation, Sight Reading and many more.

The confidence and conviction with which the students performed on the stage were a testament to the many hours of rehearsal they spent refining their dramatic technique and fine-tuning their stagecraft. The exceptional performances by so many of our students earned them striking praise from the esteemed adjudicator, despite the competition being of a very high standard this year.
