The Eisteddfod is a special event that occurs twice a year in Toowoomba and allows the Glennie girls to demonstrate their dramatic talents and hard work. Recently, the Speech and Drama students participated in the Groups and Pairs sections at the Church Theatre (at the Empire) and for many, it was their first time performing to a large crowd. For others, they had performed before, but due to the Eisteddfod being cancelled last year, they had to wait to get back on stage.
Overcoming nerves, working as a pair or group and remembering 'all the words' were huge parts of the success that occurred on the day, as well as some receiving prizes for their efforts.

The Glennie Junior Drama Collective earned first place in the Years 5 and 6 Dramatisation of A Poem with their performance of "Slithery, Slathery, Slop" by Annette Kosseris. The Drama Collective was created in 2018 to encourage working in a dramatic ensemble, building skills and resilience for performance. It consists of girls from Year 3 to Year 6.
We are very proud of the girls and their achievements.
