Drama has been embedded in our culture since before the written word. A high quality drama education should introduce students to a range of dramatic and theatrical styles. It should inspire and encourage creativity, imagination and confidence in students and help to develop their communication skills. It should stimulate creativity in problem solving, independent learning, curiosity and challenge students’ perceptions about themselves and the world around them. Through developing teamwork skills students should learn empathy and tolerance and the ability to negotiate and evaluate. Students should develop their own performance skills and be able to critically evaluate those of their peers.
