2013 Young Actors Studio Scholarships Available

Media Release

Published on

Auditions for four Slater and Gordon scholarships to the Coffs Harbour-based Young Actors’ Studio will be held on Saturday February 2.

The full-scholarships cover tuition fees for the four-term long course, which culminates in a professionally staged production.

Coffs Harbour family law expert Heather McKinnon said the scholarship program was part of Slater and Gordon’s support for local teens and young children.

“We have run this program for the past three years and I am incredibly proud of the young people who have taken part,” Ms McKinnon said.

“It is vital that young people are encouraged to step outside their comfort zone and explore their potential.

“When children push the boundaries of what they are capable of new worlds can open up to them, for some that may even include considering further study. 

“Drama classes improve confidence, public speaking ability and develop imagination – all qualities that are extremely useful in adult life.

“I meet the students every year and it is clear how much joy and confidence they gain from taking part in the Young Actors’ Studio program.”

The four Slater and Gordon scholarships are open to children from low-income families aged 8 to 17, with two scholarships available for primary school students and two for high school students.

To qualify for the scholarships, students must attend the enrolment day and advise that they wish to be considered for the scholarships.

The Young Actor’s Studio enrolment day will be held on February 2, between 9.30am and 11.30am at the Bayldon Community Centre.
