Margaret Darley, the Academy’s Training Manager of the UK, has just finished a visit to Cyprus for the initial training in the program of four teachers employed by DOREA. The Introductory children’s courses will be available in Cyprus throughout July at Busy Bees Nursery Center where, as Margaret Darley reports, the team training course and introductory classes were carried out very successfully. The program will be officially launched in September to include more schools and primary school age groups soon.

The Helen O' Grady Academy

The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy was founded in Australia in 1979 by television presenter Helen O’Grady who found she too frequently met children who were unable to express themselves on her show.

It is now the largest provider of affordable school drama programmes in the world.
