Liz Hurley praises Helen O’Grady Academy
The Helen O’Grady Academy recently received a recommendation from actress Elizabeth Hurley, who described how without evening classes in developmental drama, she would never have got to where she is today.
The concept and philosophy behind the Helen O’Grady Academy is to provide children aged three to 17 with a self-development programme that’s been specifically designed to increase confidence, self-esteem, communicative ability and creative talents.
The programme also imparts social skills that often don’t come out at an academic level. Classes are given in English and encourage proficiency in spoken English, through usage.
This is all done in a fun way, using a carefully constructed, progressive syllabus.
The academy recently also received a letter from the Member of the European Commission responsible for Education and Culture in Brussels, stating that the academy’s approach offers “interesting opportunities to help young people develop their full potential”.
Principal for the Malta branch of the academy Alan Montanaro said: “Our developmental programme through drama really works. And it’s great that it is being recognised by people who know a thing or two about young people, education and self-expression.
