Drama is Back
I am delighted to be reintroducing Drama into the Lower School curriculum here at Hurstmere and have had a brilliant first few weeks getting to know the Year 7 and 8 classes. Studying Drama isn’t about training our boys to be actors, but about giving them a chance to practice the important work of exercising imagination, empathy and creativity. Our lessons involve activities to get the boys thinking on their feet, working collaboratively in pairs or small groups and sharing and presenting ideas on a range of topics. My dream is that by the end of this academic year all of our Year 7 and 8 boys will be more confident, more articulate and more aware of their creative potential.
