We will also perform short plays and develop our problem-solving and communication skills during the rehearsal and production process.

- Create our own scripts around current social issues performed to invited audience

Where Does It Lead:

Students learn to relate to and work with others, develop critical and creative thinking skills while developing performance and communication skills in a range of dramatic contexts. Skills learnt can be applied to a range of subjects which require students to speak and perform confidently in front of an audience and clearly convey their ideas and thoughts to others. Students can continue with Drama into the senior years, as Drama is a UE endorsed subject.
