The purpose and goals will not be achieved if there is no cooperation and resilient spirit.
“I think the performance was nice. The actor did a good job of performing and acting as they were real pirates. Their voices were quite loud considering there were no microphones. I learned how to act as something that I am not entirely” (Dino, 8B)
“All of the actors were so in to their character, I’ve learned a lot from the performance, like their voice projection, blocking and facial expression” (Eva, 8B)
“The story teach me how important is teamwork and cooperation. If we work together and cooperate, things would be easier” (Amyra Atheefa, 8D)Expecting two hour show this time engages and challenges students to maximize their individual abilities through imaginative and creative drama process in the future.
