Drama is an art form that explores the world through enactment. It is collaborative in nature and involves the creative interaction of individuals through a range of artistic skills.
By studying drama, students acquire skills in interpretation, communication, performance and critical analysis. The skills required to design and implement technical processes and technologies (set design and construction, lighting design and audio operation) are also developed.
Drama can be employed as a technique for exploring personal and community issues. Students perform, and critically study aspects of drama and theatre in Australian and other societies and cultures from around the world.
The study of Drama will develop the talents and capacities of all students — physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual, creative and expressive — as well as developing self-confidence and self-esteem.
