Teacher in Charge: Mrs J. Dryden
This course is for those students who enjoyed the Year 9 course and wish to develop their performance skills and understanding of theatre. This course remains performance-based, influenced by whakapapa and is a way to respond to and share in identity, culture and perspectives. It aims to strengthen manaakitanga and key capabilities such as self-discipline, collaboration, confidence and communication skills through a creative process - to develop the art of storytelling through performance & theatre design. The course provides an excellent base for those wishing to continue with Drama through to senior level & possible tertiary study. They will explore improvisation, acting techniques, scripted text, theatre form, devising and stage craft.
Those students who plan to take NCEA Drama in the senior school should consider this option.
Course materials fee: Workbooks and other resources such as theatre visits $30.
