Drama

Curriculum

Drama is offered as a full year option at Years 10, 11, 12 and 13.

In Drama, there is a strong focus on the development of the key competencies outlined in the New Zealand Curriculum.  Students are given a variety of opportunities to demonstrate self-management, use a variety of language, symbols and texts, to participate and contribute in group tasks and to explore creative thinking. In this way they are actively encouraged to build their social and co-operative skills, self-confidence and self-esteem, and to establish personal self-assessment and evaluation.


Throughout the year students:

  • Learn how to create characters
    Learn to use the techniques of voice, body, movement, and space
  • Devise their own dramas
  • Learn about different theatre forms
  • Perform for audiences of their peers, parents, and teachers
  • Apply their theoretical knowledge in end of year exams
  • Year 10 and Year 13 classes each do a production

These activities are designed to encourage students to work together, motivate themselves, and have fun while learning.
