Speech and Drama
Applied Learning Programme/Life-Long Learning Programme
Our Speech and Drama ALP/LLP is conducted over 6-8 hours to build self-expression and confidence through drama and play-making.
Values through Drama
Students will be guided through the programme to create thought-provoking scenes, using dialogue and physicality to learn school values and principles.
Confidence in Communication
Everyone has a part to play. Students work together to form a final product.
Our programme builds teamwork, confidence, expression, and social interaction skills.
Creative Problem Solving
Through the exploration of ideas and crafting their own scenes, students solve social problems that they identify. This helps them to develop a sense of pride in their own work, and understand the amount of work that goes into creating a performance.
This programme culminates in students creating their own playlets as a stamp of:
1) ownership of the work
2) Self-expression through theatre
These playlets will be performed in an Inter-class Drama Festival as part of the programme. Beyond the Drama Festival, students will also be assessed, given certificates and have their pieces filmed so that there can be a concrete and tangible outcome of this process that students can bring home.
