Drama

Introduction:

“The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic…music, dance, painting, and theatre are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.”

–William Bennett, Former US Secretary of Education

 

At The Jubilee Academy we endeavour to provide a holistic and meaningful education to our students. We recognise that everyone has different learning needs and abilities and strive to provide a balance with our curricular and co-curricular subjects. The students get an opportunity to understand and explore complex themes and their surroundings through performing arts. It also acts as a cathartic experience and for some gives them space to expand their horizons, as well as understand themselves better. While recognising the pivotal role that creativity has in the global stage today our aim in the Drama department is to help students to think critically, create imaginatively and perform uninhibitedly – to become confident, mature and responsible young adults.
