RATIONALE

At the centre of all drama work are relationships, between people, between people and ideas, between people and environment.’

Drama is one of the oldest art forms, it affords participants an opportunity to try to make sense of the world in which we live. Participation, at whatever level, allows people to express ideas, thoughts and feelings: provides the occasion for one to see how others react to those ideas, thoughts and feelings and offers an opportunity to react to the ideas, thoughts and feelings of others.  Consequently, courses have been structured with concept at their core.  Drama dictates that the thoughts and feelings of the participants require to be communicated to an appropriate audience. Pupils are expected to develop the skills necessary to express themselves clearly in a variety of situations and circumstances. The role of the audience is given greater weight in senior school, where classroom performances are a regular feature of most programmes of study.Whilst drama provides pupils with an opportunity for self-expression, there needs to be topics and issues presented for exploration. It is hoped that these topics afford pupils the opportunities to explore their view of their world and the place they occupy in it. It allows opportunities for pupils to identify issues and topics about which they have strong feelings. It affords occasion for understanding oneself. Consequently, drama is seen as having a vital role to play in the personal and social development of pupils.
