For competitions and exam work (all ages)- students Pre-school to Matrric/Young Adults
Private classes prepare students for competition work and exam work. Some of these competitions have National and International finals. (If our student is chosen to go overseas, the cost of the ticket is covered by the student.)
During Lockdown however, the overseas opportunities will most likely not be happening. Occasionally trophies, medals and cash prizes can be won.

The same performances / pieces can be entered in different competitions as they happen at different times in the year. The same pieces can also be used again in exams.
I recommend you google each of these organisations to see what they offer, most are offering digital performances and well as live zoom performances from 2021.
Trinity college and Speech and Drama College are hoping to offer live face to face exams later in the year. Alternatively, they will be done digitally. LAMDA offer live Zoom exams.
