Good Shepherd Lutheran College

A one week intensive drama workshop took place in Good Shepherd Lutheran College to support year 11 drama assessment. 

Gunbalaya School and Community 

In Gunbalanya we brought the school and community together into this project to build a living shelter story wall. We involved students, their bininj families and student attendance officers in the creation of bi-lingual story friezes for their community. This project provided local artists with employment for the duration of the project. 

Larrakeyah Primary School 

Over seven weeks we worked on two different projects one for drama and the other for circus. For both projects, a game based approach was taken to learning. In drama this enabled learners to explore improvisation techniques and storytelling through performance. 

The game based approach taken to learning circus skills allowed learners to build an awareness of body awareness for acro balance and manipulation skills including juggling, Diablo, poi and hula hoop. Students worked collaboratively to develop skills, gain confidence and work towards an end of term performance.
