Drama / Acting
Our Drama/Acting Classes can include dramatic play, story enactment, imagination journeys, improvisation, theatre games, music, and dance. “Let’s pretend” is the norm in creative drama class, not just a child’s game. Because the emphasis in creative drama is process rather than product, teachers have the freedom to take as much time as needed with their classes. Speech and Drama is also about communication, confidence, skill, talent and creativity. Each year our drama teachers enter our students for examinations with The Irish Board of Speech and Drama. The Irish Board is an independent body which provides an objective assessment of achievement in communication skills and dramatic arts through its progressive examination system, catering for all age groups. Their syllabus encourages and facilitates the development of important communication and dramatic skills.
