drama-hairspray-jnr-2Students at Brighton Primary School experience skill building in Drama classes from the beginning of Prep with a 50 minute lesson for one semester.  Across the 7 years the scope and sequence will give students a rich understanding of all facets of the craft of acting while improving confidence, social skills and expanding their Literacy knowledge. They will also gain an understanding of dramatic elements, theatrical styles and genres, puppetry, stagecraft and movement.

The Drama programs are carefully designed using the PYP curriculum elements while adhering to the Victorian Curriculum standards allowing students to inquire into diverse and culturally connected topics.

Students also have the opportunity at any time to experience the feeling of live performance in our newly renovated Performing Arts Room with a full lighting rig, stage, sound system, props and costume department. drama-hairspray-jnr
