AimsIn addition to the overarching aims of the Australian Curriculum: The Arts, drama knowledge, understanding and skills ensure that, individually and collaboratively, students develop:
confidence and self-esteem to explore, depict and celebrate human experience, take risks and challenge their own creativity through drama
StructureLearning in Drama
