School Drama Online: Across the term

All workshops will be held online. When students return to school, Teaching Artist ‘Zooms’ into your classroom. 

School Drama Online was piloted in 2020 with 4 schools and 8 teachers. Below, you'll hear from teachers who have participated in the online program. 

"My students have become familiar with the technology, participated in fun and diverse drama activities from home and most importantly we kept a solid connection with each other which has made their transition back to school very smooth."
Participating teacher

"The students were highly engaged and really enjoyed the workshops…The collaborative nature of the tasks also created a strong sense of cooperation and camaraderie... I was surprised at just how well the workshops went and how engaged and active the students were. The facilitator was amazing."
