A new after-school opportunity for Kaharoa School students - online speech and drama lessons from a husband-and-wife-owned speech and drama school called Head Held High (HHH) whose teachers are a mixture of actors (from Shortland Street, The Hobbit, Avatar, etc), and qualified teachers (either school teachers or Trinity College of London). Apart from being awesome at what they do, their teachers are just great people and so much fun for their students!
