Branch Out Speech & Drama classes build confidence and foster creativity in a fun, relaxed environment. We cover public speaking, drama, poetry, reading aloud, storytelling, improvisation, mime, voice management, interviewing and more. Our classes will coax the shyest of students out of their shells as well as offer an outlet to the naturally exuberant!

All students sit national grade examinations through Speech New Zealand.

Classes are currently available at Sacred Heart College, or after school in the Lower Hutt CBD.


The art of speaking for all occasions will put you on the path to success - convince a crowd, make a pitch, articulate an argument...


Drama, poetry, voice management, extempore speaking, storytelling, reading aloud, improvisation and more!
