The last two years have been an absolute world wind for me personally and for our school. Since our school in Cape Town has been so successful for quite a few years now, so we decided to take a bold leap forward, to open a second branch in Johannesburg. So after much planning and hard work, We finally launched the Isabel Byers School of Speech and Drama in Gauteng! We are so excited to be offering our classes in this vibrant city and we are so grateful to all the schools and parents, who have given us the opportunity to teach and share our program with them.
So far our experience in Gauteng has been incredible. Its always daunting starting something new as you never know what the response will be.The parents, teachers and students have been so enthusiastic. Our teachers have been a dream to work with and I’m so thankful to everyone who has made this new branch possible. I would be remiss, if I didn’t mention two women who have made so much possible ; Heather MCcall our administrator and Venetia Herbst our manager in Johannesburg.
Cape Town is still going strong, thanks to the incomparable Jillian Chivell and our team there and we are so proud of the work we are doing in Johannesburg. The vision I had years ago, to make Drama accessible, affordable and empowering for as many children as possible is still very much alive and well 🙂
