Primary Drama Club

Prep & Year 1 Tuesday lunchtime: Primary Music Room

The Prep and Year 1 Drama program focuses on building skills through imaginative experiences. These activities encourage and stimulate the children’s natural tendencies to play and explore. The program nurtures children’s creativity, confidence, communication and self-expression through skill-based games and exercises, improvisation, song and dance. Students may work towards performance opportunities in Term 4.

Years 2 – 4 Tuesday 3.45pm – 4.45pm: Drama Studio

The Years 2 to 4 Drama program focuses on the development and enhancement of the children’s creative skills. The program uses improvisation as its base and has been structured so that whilst developing creativity and imagination, students also build vital skills including tolerance, resourcefulness, self-esteem, mutual respect, presentation and public speaking, song and dance. Children learn to listen, negotiate, share ideas and work in collaboration whilst developing drama skills and performance. Students may work towards performance opportunities in Term 4.

Years 5 to 12

This program aims to develop effective communication skills through the study of drama and communication.

Students in Year 5 and above can learn techniques in drama and communication in a supportive and nurturing environment. The students work in small group situations and programs are devised based on students’ interests and needs.

Using improvisation as a base, techniques learnt will enhance the development of self-esteem, confidence, imagination, creativity and vocal expression. Some of the main areas explored include acting technique, vocal technique, interpretation, performance and genre immersion.

Students will be given the opportunity to take part in a showcase performance in Term 4, highlighting skills learnt throughout the year and receiving performance feedback.

For more information, please contact Lauren Zeigler via performingarts@cornishcollege.vic.edu.au
