Local drama teacher, Ian Brown, has continued to keep children engaged throughout each lockdown by providing online drama classes. Ian, Principal of Helen O’Grady Drama Academy in Croydon and his team have successfully continued to inspire their students throughout the duration of this pandemic, adapting to online delivery to ensure their students still had access to social interaction, positivity and continuity at a time when we have been limited in the activities we can access.
Ian moved his classes online almost immediately, allowing his students to interact and socialise at a time when families were safe at home and schools closed. This was gratefully received by parents and students alike:
‘The online drama classes with their uplifting activities made a positive change to the daily routine. That has proved to be very important for her mental well-being as well. Helen O’Grady Drama Academy gives the children a positive attitude towards life and its possibilities’
Each week the laughter, enjoyment and element of normality to the weekly schedule allows everyone to keep smiling:
‘I would like to say how much I look forward to our online drama classes each week. Especially during these times of lock down. They have given me a sense of purpose and normality and also something to focus on’
Ian and his team love being able to connect with the students each week, hearing their laughter and enjoyment and seeing their beaming smiles! We might not have been able to gather in venue for a while but we have still offered a weekly dose of imagination, socialisation, interaction and FUN!
With a covid-safe return to the classroom set for April, there is no better time to book a free trial! For more information, click here.
