Have fun while building self-confidence and learning the skills of public speaking.
SpeakOut Schools’ main objective is to help students boost their self-confidence, self-esteem, and learn new skills that they can use for life.
In her role as a professional TEDx speaker coach, the founder of SpeakOut Schools, Katharine Collins has helped hundreds of people overcome their fear of public speaking. Watching her two children, she realised that the fear and lack of confidence around public speaking kicks in at a very early age. SpeakOut Schools was set up to help kids stop developing this fear of public speaking in a supportive, fun, engaging learning environment.
SpeakOut runs the following school holiday programs for primary and high school students that your kids will love.
School Holiday Workshops (years 3 and 4)
The aim of the 1 day workshop is to provide a strong introduction to the key skills required for public speaking and presentations. Students will learn in a highly supportive environment which will help them grow a sense of self-confidence and develop a positive attitude to presentations and public speaking.
School Holiday Workshops (years 5 – 8):
This workshop are tailored specifically to help late primary school students prepare for the speaking requirements of high school and beyond.
School Holiday Workshops (years 7 – 10)
The ability to speak confidently is absolutely crucial to a high school students academic success. These workshops focus on providing a strong foundation for all future public speaking and presentations – be it at school, university or working life.
All of the SpeakOut Schools workshops are highly engaging, interactive and fun – it is the school holidays after all! We use lots of structured games and activities to help teach the basics of public speaking. Your child will learn without even realising it. The students have multiple opportunities to practice their newly acquired skills in a highly supportive environment. The techniques they learn will help them develop their self-confidence and reduce their anxiety when it comes to speaking in any situation.
