A little bit about STC School Drama

School Drama is a professional learning program that partners Primary School teachers with professional performing artists for 7 weeks, for one school term – inspiring a passion for reading, critical thinking, performance and oral literacy.

A partnership between Sydney Theatre Company, Murray Arts and HotHouse Theatre, School Drama has a dual focus. The primary focus is on the individual teacher’s professional learning.

With this in mind, a Teaching Artist models how to use process drama-based strategies with quality children’s literature to improve teaching and learning. The secondary focus is on improving student literacy and engagement.
