Students at our school have the opportunity to audition to participate in the City of Sydney Drama Eisteddfod. Ms Foster our Library and Drama teacher works with our eisteddfod students at lunch times and after school in order to prepare them for the competition.
In these Eisteddfods students are required to memorise, rehearse and present poems, duologues and monologues in front of several judges. When participating in this program student's grow in confidence and overcome any fears or insecurities they may have had prior. Memorising their pieces also plays an important role in both learning and challenging their brains. Creativity is extended through memorisation tasks which develops working memory and assists with focus.
