Learning - Drama

SECONDARY DRAMA

This fun and exciting subject can have students participating in mime, role plays, improvisation, script writing, voice production, circus skills, mask and puppetry. The courses can incorporate learning about all areas of theatre production, including lighting, sound, costume design and set design, and culminates in performances throughout the year.

Students develop communication skills through confidence building exercises in a safe and supportive environment, and the ability to be expressive and reflective in their dramatic actions and interpretations. Students gain knowledge in the conventions of drama and have the opportunity to perform in front of an audience. 

Practice of the skills required for performing arts can significantly improve hand eye coordination, fine motor skills, concentration, improved balance and posture, left brain/right brain usage, confidence, self-esteem, trust in others, teamwork, motivation and a sense of achievement.More importantly, it is also lots of fun!
