From Year 5 onwards, students are able to participate in Drama and Dance within the School curriculum.
In addition, all students from Years 1 to 12 are invited to participate in individual or small group lessons in drama, effective communication and presentation skills.
Years 1 - 6 are able to participate in an After School Drama Club, held in the Junior School.
Speech and Drama Tuition
These private lessons occur during School days in a similar fashion to individual instrumental music tuition.
This program is designed to develop a student's individual communication skills and performance techniques. The skills of oracy (reading, listening and speaking) are emphasised to enable students to develop clarity and confidence in all areas of oral communication: verse speaking, reading aloud, acting, improvisation and public speaking.
Emphasis is placed on correct breathing for speech, clear enunciation and voice production. Students are encouraged to develop an appreciation of good literature and an awareness of the strength and beauty of the spoken word.
Students present their work at soirees and are also encouraged to enter various State festivals and competitions. Over the years, Korowa students have achieved success in many competitions.
Students can also choose to undertake the International Speech and Drama examinations of Trinity - Guildhall, London in which Korowa students enjoy considerable success.
After School Drama Club
This is offered to students in Years 1 to 6 as an after School activity. The aim of the After School Drama Club is firstly, to encourage students to speak out and share their ideas, develop their creativity, and consolidate their self-confidence.
Secondly, the aim is for students to learn dramatic skills and develop their performance and communication abilities for public speaking. These are taught in a supportive environment using Drama role play, improvisation, characterisation, voice techniques, Stage skills and Drama games. Work is also shared from time to time in front of an audience.
