students in a drama

Drama is a dynamic learning experience that caters for a diverse range of students and prepares them for effective and responsible participation in society, taking account of moral, ethical and spiritual considerations. The study of Drama engages and challenges students to maximise their individual abilities through imaginative, dramatic experiences created in co-operation with others.

Students will learn to make, perform and appreciate Drama. They will learn about the elements of Drama including character, focus, time, place, space, structure, rhythm, pace and tension. Students will develop their performance skills in a range of performance opportunities including play building, improvisation, theatresports, lip-sync and script work. Students will learn to work as a team in theatre games, focus activities and group performances. Students will learn to appreciate drama and theatre by attending workshops, professional performances, writing Theatre reviews and reflecting their work in their logbooks.
