Primary Drama showcase: “Everyone had a chance to shine”

“I am very aware of the thought that went into creating a range of different roles and opportunities allowing each and every student the chance to step up and deliver their best. They were an absolute delight to watch.”

Every primary student has been involved in this event in which they performed plays and musicals they’ve been rehearsing in class time over the last eight weeks.

Students in Years 1-4 performed a 30-minute musical ‘There’s a sunflower in my supper’, about a group of cows thoroughly confused by a sunflower growing in their grassy field.

Year 5 performed a traditional take on the well-loved story, ‘Sleeping Beauty’, as did Year 6 with ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’.

Music and Drama teacher Kelly Hayward coordinated the event and said students had gained a lot from their involvement.

“They have been able to improve their performance skills, gain more confidence in public speaking, and learn how to follow stage directions and memorise lines,” she said. “They have also developed characterisation and improvisation skills, contributing to creative ideas and working in groups.”

Principal Thea Kilian said every single student had an opportunity to shine.
