How can we help?
‘Teachers in schools are the key to providing students with rich, sustained, rigorous learning in each of the subjects in the arts. The arts industry complements the provision of the Arts curriculum in schools through programs and partnerships. The industry increasingly provides specialist services for schools, as appropriate, through experiences such as visiting performances.’
Using Band Descriptors, Content Descriptors and Achievement Standards from the Australian Arts Curriculum, we create post performance TASKS with learning outcomes for each band (F-2, 3-4, 5-6).
Teachers will be able to come away from the performance and have students reflect upon what they have experienced through the two strands of:-
1. Responding (written) 2. Making (practical)
We select our content and workshops based on the QCAA's Drama, English and EAL senior syllabi to assist teachers in their delivery of curriculum. Performances are delivered in style and genre to meet Drama's IA1, IA2 and IA3 assessments.
ENOUGH a play about anxiety created by FNQ teenagers
A verbatim piece of theatre which explores the themes of anxiety in teenagers and was created with the assistance of both RADF and Flying Arts grants in 2021. Over the two creative developments we worked with 25 local teenagers and a psychologist to create the 35 minute piece.
ENOUGH follows the story of high school student Amy as she struggles with anxiety, interspersed with personal stories from teenagers about their struggles with mental health. We also identify the triggers of anxiety, the physiological effects and offer helpful advice backed up by Beyond Blue.
ENOUGH includes the unique opportunity for your senior drama students to perform in the production. We include a full day workshop where we rehearse them into the show, followed by 3 performances for your school. (junior, middle, senior)
