Drama is integral to our lives and is fundamental to how we communicate, express and explore ideas. This course involves making and responding to various theatrical works and stimuli, as well as developing individual creativity while enhancing students’ ability to critically analyse dramatic works. In addition to developing enhanced communication skills applicable to all pathways, the Hawker College Drama program provides challenging and effective pedagogy to prepare students for exciting careers in the Arts and associated industries.
Students demonstrating particular interest and aptitude may be invited to undertake units from the specialised course. These units encourage agency and innovation, providing scope for interdisciplinary experimentation and entrepreneurship within the Arts. Students can participate in a range of major theatrical productions, enrichment programs, events and projects within the school and broader community and are encouraged to display and exhibit their work in these forums.
