Course Overview

Book in quick before our Early Bird Discount ends at Midnight 2 June!

 

This workshop seeks to provide students with various crucial skills they need to succeed in their next presentation (and life in general).  Using the Tabby Cats workshop as a foundation, the Tigers program uses a mix of experiential learning and speaking games to help students both deepen their understanding of public speaking as well as develop their confidence in presenting to audiences.

Placing student-centred learning at its heart, this program changes from holiday to holiday, allowing students to practice and develop a much more comprehensive range of presentation skills that they can use whenever they deliver presentations at school. In particular, students will cover the following in 2024:

  • Expressing Yourself in the January Holidays;
  • presenting Informative Speeches in the April Holidays;
  • the best persuasive strategies for Voicing Opinions in the July Holidays; and
  • Telling Tales in the September Holidays.

Each of these takes a deep dive into the selected topic, allowing students to develop their skills in a different way each and every holiday.  Importantly, given that most students in this age group have not developed abstract thought, all sessions have a strong emphasis on activities and ‘learning by doing’.

As with all of our presentation skills training courses, we also ensure that classes are kept small, so students are nurtured in a safe and welcoming environment where they feel comfortable expressing themselves and developing their communication skills.

 

More Information

Speeches are a powerful way to communicate with audiences. They can be used for many purposes – such as informing and entertaining people – but most commonly they are about getting up to persuade people of your opinion.

This program places the focus on developing strong opinions and being able to persuade people of those opinions. We look at how to develop strong opinions and how to use these to create persuasive and engaging presentations.

Students learn how they can use various techniques – from chain words to ‘high modality’ language – to help make their speeches sound much more persuasive. Students also have lots of opportunities to put these skills into practice and get tailored feedback on their work as well.

Our Presentation Skills Tigers workshop is a mixed-experience program.

There are three groups of students who would benefit from undertaking the Presentation Skills Tigers program:

  1. those who have previous formal coaching in public speaking – this may be from one of our programs (including our Tabby Cats holiday program, or our Leopards or Lions weekly term programs), from another provider or potentially through their school;
  2. anyone who is trying out public speaking for the first time, is already reasonably confident and is unable to attend the Presentation Skills Tabby Cats workshop; or
  3. students who have previously completed the Tigers workshop who are interested in developing their speaking skills even further – given the program changes from holiday to holiday, students are more than welcome (and even encouraged) to try it again and again.

If you’re not sure whether your child fits into any of these categories, please get in touch and we can chat about your circumstances!

Alternatively, please check out our video below to see how our holiday workshops function!

After completing the Voicing Opinions program, students should:

  • have been exposed to the fundamental principles which underpin persuasive speeches;
  • be able to develop and communicate opinions on a variety of topics;
  • have been given multiple opportunities to present to their class in each and every session.

Revision of Fundamental Concepts

The program starts with a succinct (but necessary) revision of the essential concepts covered in our beginner-level programs, including audience engagement and speech structure. This helps set students up for the rest of the program and ensures that everyone starts on a similar level.

Looking at Building Opinions

After going through the basics, the next couple of sessions look at how to create a strong opinion to form the basis of future speeches. This involves looking at the core steps required to build a convincing opinion as well as developing a passion for your topic to further engage the audience.

Developing Persuasive Presentations

The remainder of the program takes students through a range of different speaking activities, all with the goal of building persuasive speeches that allow the students to present their strong opinions to the class on a variety of topics.

Our classes vary in size every holiday depending on how many bookings we receive – however, the maximum size of our Presentation Skills Tigers class is 9 students with one coach, and 16 students with two coaches.

If there aren’t any spots left, it’s usually because we’ve hit capacity – please get in touch with us and we’ll see what we can do about either opening an extra class, fitting your child into the existing class, or putting you on a waitlist in case any students pull out!

After each workshop, students will get to keep:

  • a feedback sheet prepared by their coach (which will be emailed through) outlining what they’ve improved on during the course, and what they could continue to work on in the future;
  • a certificate recognising that they have completed the Presentation Skills Tigers workshop;
  • a workbook containing the key concepts that students covered during the workshop; and
  • a better understanding of how public speaking works in a new context!

We have great Kindy programs available for all students who aren’t yet in Year 1 – check out our Speaking Skills Bumblebees holiday workshop and Speaking Skills Butterflies weekly term program to learn more!

We strongly recommend waiting until Year 1 before enrolling in our Tabby Cats or Tigers holiday workshops, or our Leopards and Lions term programs.

All our Year 1 – 2 programs require students to be able to write at least simple sentences, as well as read their own handwriting and instructions on the board, which most Kindergarten students are unfortunately not able to do.  This may lead to those students feeling inferior to the rest of the class, creating new fears around public speaking – the exact opposite of what we hope to achieve.

If you think that your child has sufficient reading and writing skills, we would be more than happy to talk it through with you – alternatively, we would also be more than happy to add you to our email list (see below) so we can let you know when bookings open when your child is old enough to join!

As a mixed-experience program, our Presentation Skills Tigers program is designed to be completed multiple times – with a different focus every holiday, there’s always something new for students to take away from the program!

However, if you’re looking for something more regular, you may want to give one of our term programs a try, such as Presentation Skills Leopards or Presentation Skill Lions, which will build on the skills learned during the holidays.

Course Reviews

It is an excellent program. I will be interested to book my daughter again in the future.

My daughter has learned a lot and was able to tell me about speech structures and key points about presenting in front of audience.
