School Drama │Back in School 2017
We LOVE School Drama...back again for the 3rd year in a row!
School Drama partners Primary School classroom teachers with a professional performing artist
for just over 7 weeks, during one school Term.
It inspires a passion for reading, critical thinking, performance and oral literacy!
It's the sort of professional development program that's rare to find!
