Through our extensive Drama and Performing Arts Program, your daughter will be given the opportunity to enhance her creativity.
At Fahan School your daughter will experience the many opportunities and possibilities of Drama and the Performing Arts through a broad range of curricular and extra-curricular performance activities.
In Years 6, 7 and 8, Drama encourages students to extend their skills and confidence. The Drama course is process-based and concentrates on the development of skills in improvisation, play building, text interpretation, theatre performances and stage craft. In Year 6, students engage in drama games, play making and the rehearsal and performance of a scripted play. Over time, the students increase their verbal and physical skills and also their logical and intuitive thought processes in the expression of their personal voices.
Students who choose to continue Drama in Years 9 and 10 will further develop their ability. This is a performance-based course and will allow the students to enhance and increase their skills to refine their creative ideas. They will also be able to improve their interpretations of character and text through workshops, rehearsals and performances. Most importantly, this course enables students to boost their skills in ensemble work.
Through Drama, students develop their confidence and their ability to communicate effectively through performance, while also learning vital life skills. The practice of improvisation enhances quick thinking, and the memorisation of lines and necessary commitment to rehearsals instills organisation and responsibility.
We also provide students with the opportunity to explore the technical side of dramatic production through our student Production Crew.
Fahan has a proud reputation for excellence in the performing arts. One of the founding principals, Miss Audrey Morphett, created an outstanding performing arts program that continues today, offering your daughter the chance to join the likes of Fahan alumna, Robyn Nevin and Zehra Naqvi.
