TAPAC class

These classes, run by SHINE School of Confidence, teach children to speak more confidently, communicate more effectively, improve their listening skills and use their imaginations.

Classes are small to ensure children receive specialised, one-on-one attention so enrol early to secure space. This class runs over 8 weeks.

Examinations:

Professional certificate and diploma qualifications are offered through Speech NZ and the Trinity College of London. Exams are not compulsory.

This course is now fully booked for Term 4 but there are still spaces on some of our drama classes for children.
