Performing Arts - Drama

From the early years of their Primary education at Star of the Sea Catholic College our students receive a gradual introduction to the formal elements of group participation in movement and dramatic presentation. Drama operates as a class curriculum area until Year 9, at which stage it becomes an elective area for students. 

Through the wide range of activities included in the Drama course students develop understanding of role, character presentation, production and performance techniques;  they also have the opportunity develop a significant number of personal and interpersonal skills through self knowledge and through working with others. 

The Years 9 and 10 elective students present an biannual production to an external audience, often offering levels of involvement in performance to a number of students from other year levels, Year 8 in particular.
