Every student at GIS is on a pathway to become a successful leader in his or her respective chosen field in life. Particularly in a leader’s but also in anyone else’s public life, acting skills and the ability of understanding people’s reactions are key to being a resilient and successful individual. At GIS’ faculty of Drama we facilitate the personal development of our students and develop skills and qualities, such as creativity, confidence, leadership, teamwork and analytical thinking.
Drama at Garden International School
We regard drama as a collective form of art combining a broad range of skills. Our main goal as a faculty is to awaken the creative thoughts and ideas of our students, to build confidence to perform in front of peers and to critically analyse live performances whilst focussing on the performance itself not the person performing. This focused goal allows us to provide students with the opportunity to develop communication skills as well as promoting self-confidence by allowing students to experience a sense of achievement. Obviously, we also encourage creativity and allow students to explore multifaceted issues in a safe and supportive environment.
For all of the above reasons, GIS Drama students tend to generate a higher level of curiosity, passion and enthusiasm for things in life and they view the world from a more mature and potentially wiser angle.
Having said this, learning Drama is obviously also fun and we are particularly passionate about creating live performances. All of our enthusiastic faculty members approach each lesson with a sense of fun and challenge and we love celebrating successful performances with our students. Amongst some of the yearly accolades are our Year 7 to 9 plays.
We are also particularly proud of our newly enhanced Immersive Environment Room as well as our IGCSE results, which continue to be some of the highest in the school and are testimony to the academic rigour underpinning the GIS Drama curriculum.
At GIS, we bring out the best in everyone, both inside and outside of the classroom through our unique learning culture where we pursue our passions and strive for excellence; all in the spirit of respect, integrity and well being. Speak with us today to start your learning journey with GIS.
