Two Kinross Wolaroi School students will have an edge in their future careers after each were awarded honours in a Diploma of Speech and Drama following eight years of study.

Year 11 student Ailish Seedsman and year 12 student Kirith Vijayakumar graduated with honours after sitting speech and drama exams with the International Music Examinations Board (IMEB). 

Ailish has been a long term student under Jacquie Paix and Kirith has been a long time student under Kerrie-Ann Callaughan at Kinross Wolaroi School.

The students studied speech and drama to learn the necessary building blocks for effective communication, develop self-confidence, a creative imagination, empathy, and maturity in interpersonal skills.

The speech and drama program is offered as an extracurricular activity at the school and the drama degree takes a theoretical approach, covering topics such as script-writing and theatre design, widening career options in a highly competitive field.
