Sharing is caring!

Has your child ever expressed a desire to be a radio DJ or a little news reporter? Want to give their presentation skills a boost or allow them to find out the secrets behind how reporters pull off such slick presentations on TV?

During the June school break, there is an opportunity for them to do exactly that with holiday courses from Singapore Media Academy.

With a wide range of courses for children as young as four years old, Singapore Media Academy’s programmes are designed to bring out your child’s creativity through hands-on, experiential learning.

As an enterprise of MediaCorp, Singapore Media Academy draws on the broadcaster’s industry experience for its programmes. Some courses even make use of media production studios and incorporate ‘tips’ from professionals on how to make better presentations or to write better.
