June has taught drama for the past two years at our school. The children really enjoy drama with June and look forward to her classes each week. June makes drama fun and playful and she has a lovely relationship with the children. Through drama June teaches the children confidence, resilience and empathy. We can see the benefits throughout the school. June has a wealth of games, activities, poems and plays which she shares with us. She always works in close partnership with teachers and has helped us with Christmas Concerts and other school performances. She is a super drama teacher!Orla BrickendenHoly Trinity, Westport
Hi my name is Julianne and I am 9. I have been doing drama with June since Junior Infants... IJulianne NashStudent (Age 9)
love it so very much .. I enjoy the different activities we do in class and I especially love the
shows that we put on for our family during the year... When I am in my drama class, I feel free, I
can be whatever I want to be and June teaches us how to express our thoughts and feelings...
Sometimes I can be a bit worried about what people think of me... But since I started Drama I
have learned that it's ok to be me, and it's fantastic to be creative and to be able to not be afraid to express yourself..
I also have done my drama exams with June and I found they have given me great confidence. I was very lucky to have received a medal for my grade and was so proud of myself. I hope
Drama will always be part of my life as I love it so very much.
If you are thinking of taking up Drama you definitely won't regret. It's just Brilliant.
My 3 daughters have all attended Drama with June at various stages over the past 8 years. They have all LOVED their time with her. Her classes are always fun and engaging whether it’s for those who want to shine or those who prefer to glow more quietly in the background! It has had great benefits for their confidence and self -esteem. The classes are inclusive for everybody and varied to allow the children to explore their talents in acting, singing and dancing. The children are supported and encouraged to try things, without feeling under any pressure to take part. It has allowed them to find their passion and one of them has continued with supporting roles in productions with different local drama and musical societies. I would highly recommend Mayo Performance Academy and their classes for children of all ages.Orlene MooneyParent
