Each term has a theme, and the theme for Term Two 2022 is Performance!

With the support of Creative Communities we’ll work on our homegrown play, Taipari Sunshine. Students will explore the many stories of one little yellow house in Te Atatū Peninsula, and the characters who have called it home. Each class will represent a decade, and we will experience the lifespan of this special house. The performance is an opportunity for the students to employ the skills they have built over time doing drama with us!

Throughout the year students work with all aspects of drama including:

  • voice and sound
  • creative movement
  • dramatic play
  • improvisation
  • imaginative journeys
  • stagecraft
  • theatre games
  • script analysis
  • characterisation
