Term Public Speaking Koalas is a beginners course – it is ideal for students in Years 3 – 4 who are new to public speaking and who would like to build their confidence. The course introduces students to foundational concepts and practices in public speaking. Enrolling in Term Public Speaking Koalas is a great way to help prepare students for the speaking tasks they will encounter in later primary school years and beyond!
Students will be provided with lots of opportunities to practice their skills in a fun and supportive environment. Lessons are very interactive and classes are kept small so that every student, whether shy or gregarious, has the opportunity to receive individualised support and feedback from their coach.
Our Term Public Speaking Koalas course is a beginner class.
It is designed for students with little to no experience presenting in front of audiences. Both shy and confident students will flourish in this fun and welcoming environment as they learn and practice new skills!
Over the course of the term, students will have the opportunity to:
learn core introductory theory focusing on the essential elements of public speaking;
gain lots of exposure to speaking activities, which will help them build confidence and develop good speaking habits and techniques; and
practice their budding skills in a supportive environment, alongside peers of a similar age and ability level
Each of our term programs runs from 7 – 10 weeks depending on the start date, the length of term and the requirements of our partner organisations – any differences in length have already been taken into account for that program’s pricing.
I’ve completed a Speaking Camp Koalas holiday program – is this right for me?
If your child has completed our Speaking Camp Koalas holiday program, we would recommend they enrol in either Term Public Speaking Koalas, or Term Debating Koalas – the focuses of all three programs are very different, and students will gain different skills from all three!
I’ve completed Term Public Speaking Koalas – where to next?
If your child has completed our Term Public Speaking Koalas course, we recommend that they do it one more time – this ensures that the concepts sink in, and gives them ample opportunity to develop their manner without having to worry about learning new theoretical content. We make sure that the activities are substantially different, so students will still be engaged during their second term!
Once they’ve completed the program twice, we recommend that they either progress to our Term Public Speaking Kangaroos course, or try their hand at Term Debating Koalas.
