Welcome to



The Speech and Drama Association performs a vital role in today’s society. As a non-profit organisation based in KwaZulu-Natal, we foster and add the all-important skills of imagination, confidence and communication to a child’s education portfolio.

A well-rounded individual is not just one that can perform on the sports field, but is someone who can confidently hold the attention of an audience. What is today a school stage, may become a business podium in a few short years. Speech and drama gives children a distinct advantage in a competitive world.

We hold well-known and respected annual festivals in schools and studios in KwaZulu-Natal where children are assessed in a non-competitive environment with encouragement and confidence development being the primary goals. And, of course, a healthy helping of fun.
