There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Drama students have a unique opportunity to explore the various seasons of life; the good, the bad and the ugly.
Year 9 students are in the final stages of rehearsal for their upcoming Clowning performances, to bring joy and laughter to the Early Years students and teachers. Seeing life through the eyes of a child, we are reminded that sometimes, we should take life and ourselves less seriously.
In contrast, Year 11 students have been learning about the genre of Tragedy, understanding that difficult decisions can often spiral out of control. However, through tragedy, we can also teach the students about the joy of hope. Recently, the students watched a live performance of the Shakespearean play, Julius Caesar. Following the play, there was a Q&A session, and the teachers were very encouraged by the insightful questions the students had the courage to ask the cast and director.
You too can be a part of their journey at SHINE, Friday 1 September.
