  • Drama at Trafalgar High School

The underlying goal in Drama, is to encourage students to develop their interpersonal skills and communication skills along with their creativity and problem-solving skills. Students participate in activities based on the idea of roles and characters in different contexts. Expressive and performance skills are used in characterisation and role development. Dramatic elements and conventions of staging and performing work as well as improvisation and scripted work are integral to course content. Students practice and refine their use of voice and movement in performance to communicate with audiences as they perform devised and scripted drama. They will make deliberate choices when shaping their narratives and designs and they will evaluate how the elements of drama, convey meaning. Teamwork, self-confidence and trust building are areas students will explore as they learn to support positive group dynamics. Activities include improvisation, role play, mask making, script writing and a wide range of ‘focus’ activities and games.
