Congratulations to Ruby Anderson who recently won a Scholarship for Grade 6 Speech and Drama. Ruby is a Year 11 student at St Margaret’s College in Christchurch.

She has been taking Speech and Drama with Speech NZ since Year 8, when she started at Grade 4.

Ruby is a keen drama student at school and an enthusiastic member of the school debating team.

The Grade 6 Speech and Drama Scholarship is a fantastic accolade to her commitment and enthusiasm for all things Speech and Drama.

Ruby is absolutely delighted to receive this honour and is continuing her work in Grade 7 at the moment.

Her teacher Dinie Bevers says that Ruby is “always of a sunny disposition, she brings energy and imagination to all her drama classes, supporting her team members at all times.”

The certificate will be presented to her at the Special Arts Assembly, when she will also receive a Red Rose, a special recognition for students who achieve at a very high standard in any field of the Arts.
