With the options to take part in poetry competitions and an Initial speech and drama examination at the end of the year.

Note:  This class is recommended for 1st-2nd class students. Students in Senior Infants who have attended 2 years of Step 1  classes with us can in Senior Infants if desired. Term 1 involves preparation for drama exams and Term 2 leads up to a performance in a professional theatre which we would recommend for students aged 7 and over. Both of these events are quite a jump up from the Step 1 class.
