OUR AIM IS TO DEVELOP CONFIDENCE IN OUR STUDENTS. OUR DRAMA CLASSES ARE THE FOUNDATION THROUGH WHICH WE ACHIEVE THAT
Acting, Speech & Drama classes at WSP are all about developing confidence and performance skills in a nurturing environment where students feel comfortable to do their best.
The younger classes focus on social development through fun theatre sport games, improvisation activities, short plays and skits that promote abilities to converse and present speeches. They work individually, in small groups and in teams to narrate freeze frames, perform various skits and give impromptu readings. All of these skills are important in developing a confident learner at school and one who is ready to take on their brightest future.
As students grow older the focus becomes to encourage and promote individual acting abilities and work on these as a team that assists the running and organising of many WSP yearly events such as festivals and fundraisers.
Students look to portray various emotions on stage, develop accents, study different genres of theatre and have fun writing and directing plays and working on scripted pieces. Most acting, speech and drama students like to enter the various eisteddfods throughout the year and perform in the festivals, mid year showcase and end of year concert.
