Drama enables students to develop their communication skills, self-esteem and confidence. It is a powerful learning medium which prepares students for life beyond the classroom. It promotes independent thought and creativity. It enables students to work collaboratively and provides opportunities for them to communicate their ideas and emotions. Students are encouraged to develop their ability to use voice, movement, gesture and facial expression in acting, mime and improvisation. Students develop the ability to not only make drama, but to reflect and evaluate their own and others’ work. They move through clear phases of making, performing and evaluating in all key stages, building in depth, knowledge and ability throughout.
