Utilising a range of fun and interactive activities, this program allows coaches to encourage students to step further out of their comfort zones, and places a particular focus on cultivating engaging presentation styles.
The focus of each Lions program changes each term, with the same program being taught across all our venues – we’ve got more specific details for what’s coming up next below!
Our focus for Term #1 will be on newsreading and informative speeches.
Whilst most programs focus on persuasive speeches – presentations which try to get the audience to take a certain course of action – these are by no means the only speeches given in day to day life. Students in early primary school are often asked not to persuade, but just to inform – to let the audience know something they didn’t know before.
This program provides students with a basic introduction to informative speeches through the lense of newsreading. Students will learn how to extrapolate events from their own lived experience, and share those events with their audience in an informative and engaging manner. As with all our programs, students will also be exposed to a number of activities to help them practice their skills and develop further as a speaker.
Our Presentation Skills Lions course is an experienced level program.
Students are assumed to have a reasonable understanding of public speaking, and in particular persuasive speeches, before undertaking the program. By way of indiciation, the Lions program would be suitable for students who have:
Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss what’s best for your child!

Our classes vary in size every term depending on how many bookings we receive – however, the maximum size of our Lions class is around eight students with one coach.
If there aren’t any spots left, it’s usually because we’ve hit capacity, but may also be the result of a miscommunication with the coaching college – 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 program, students will go home with:
If you’re interested in doing another term program, our Presentation Skills Lions program changes from term to term, so students will learn new stills each time they come back – check above for what the focus is going to be next term.
Alternatively, if you were looking to do an intensive holiday program, we would recommend that students give our Presentation Skills Tigers program a try. This holiday workshop teaches a range of different skills, and changes from holiday to holiday, giving students the opportunities to develop their speaking skills in a range of novel circumstances, from advertising to basic comparative debating skills.
Very good program - we are looking forward to you running after school programs in our area!
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.
