Years 2 to 6: Two courses: Enter Stage Left and unlocking the Past

Courses are offered as a package, with two courses in each package, meaning all students enrolled will do both courses. 

Each class integrates hands-on activities around an interesting and exciting central theme.  This term students will learn about:

ENTRE STAGE LEFT - PHILIPPA LAM

Enter Stage Left is a dynamic course based around understanding and interacting with different styles of theatre. Students will get a chance to go around the world learning about a variety of theatre styles throughout history. They will also be challenged to unleash their creativity and improvisation skills through a range of theatre-sports games that will refine their skills in the first weeks for the final performance in the last week. This course is aimed at giving the students the freedom to express their ideas using multiple methods including movement, voice, design and music. 

The history of Shakespeare, Greek Tragedy, Indigenous, African and Kabuki theatre will be explored in separate weeks and reinforced with a practical component. Students will also be able to partake in the practicalities of drama in understanding stage directions, set-making and costume design as ways of expressing a story. In the last week, the students will show off their refined storytelling skills with an original adapted performance that will demonstrate a range of theatrical styles, will combine historical contexts, practical skills and unique creativity to enable students to tell stories in new and exciting ways.

UNLOCK THE PAST - JANELLE RYAN / VANESSA ROMERO

The Unlocking the Past Course is designed to stimulate students’ interest in Ancient History through the integration of a wide variety of case studies and studies of societies using a range of archaeological and written evidence. The course will provide students with up to date research on historical sites and issues.

Case studies like the Sphinx, Boudicca, Troy and the entombed warriors, will help students to explore the various ways historians and archaeologists investigate and record the past. Students will be required to question, analyse and interpret a variety of archaeological and written sources, develop hypotheses and assess theories. Students will also learn to investigate the social history of people such as the Theran people, through a study of written and archaeological sources. Unlocking the Past will enhance students’ confidence in evaluating critically and in drawing conclusions based on relevant evidence.

The course will operate with 8 or more participants and spaces are strictly limited. Each class runs for one-and-a-half hours.
