On Tuesday 26 July, the VCE Drama students headed off for a full day workshop run by Drama Victoria in Brunswick. The purpose of the day was to focus on the development of their solo performance.
In Year 12 Drama, students complete two exams at the end of the year, a written exam and a self devised solo performance exam. The Year 11 and 12 Drama students bravely joined together with other students from a variety of schools to create, refine and present work for the solo performances.
It was wonderful to see the students embrace the opportunity and actively engage in all of the workshops throughout the day. I was so impressed by their courage to present in front of people that they had only just met. They listened intently as the presenter spoke about the requirements of the exam. As they got back on to the bus at the end of the day, there was a fabulous energy as the students buzzed about ideas they had come up with throughout the day and what they were going to do next for their solo performances.
