This course is offered at St Patrick's College.
This course is designed to develop skills in improvisation, body language,
voice and use of space. Students will also work on script devising and
scrip interpretation. If there is a College production it is expected that
students are involved in some way. Students will also study two
playwrights. There are written as well as performance components to
the course. Regular attendance is essential and therefore students who
are also in Transition and /or Outdoor Education will have difficulty
completing the assignments. The majority of assessment is carried out
against Achievement Standards. There are no external assessments.
