At MG, we're committed to encouraging young people to gain confidence, make brave choices and believe in their abilities. We want our young actors to gain skills that they can use not only in front of the camera, but in their everyday life. We have a large variety of young people from Geelong and surrounding regions enter our classrooms and we are constantly getting amazing feedback from parents about their child's achievements outside of our classes - so we thought it was time we let you parents know just how fantastic your children are when they come to us for two hours each week! As of May 2016, we will be awarding a Student of the Month award to a student in each class & we're really excited to share our feedback on how amazing your children are! You child will receive a certificate that recognizes their fabulous accomplishments so they can show it to all their family and friends - definitely one for the fridge!
