Our Workshops

Primary School Drama Workshops

We can work with students from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. We combine creative arts and drama to encourage pupils to think and act imaginatively and spontaneously.  These workshops will help bring the children’s potential to the forefront, while instilling them with a greater confidence. 

Workshops in the Classroom include:

  • Make your own Radio Play
  • Creative DIY (Drama and arts In You)
  • In their Shoes – Empathy and Respect Workshop
  • Introduction to Shakespeare

CPD courses for teachers

Our CPD courses are approved by the Department of Education and Skills and have been built around the learning aims and objectives from the Primary school curriculum: Drama (DES, 1999). The strand ‘drama to explore feelings, knowledge and ideas, leading to understanding’ is addressed within the strand units ‘exploring and making drama’, ‘reflecting on drama’ and ‘co-operating and communicating in making drama’ are explored. Each course is divided into strands addressing in a multidisciplinary means all the core curriculum subjects at Primary level. Contact educate@gaietyschool.com to be added to our mailing list for info on upcoming CPD courses.

 

Primary School Projects at GSA

Dramatic arts education is an important way of stimulating creativity. It can challenge students perceptions about their world and about themselves, students overcome difficulties with speaking in public and help to develop tolerance and empathy in students.

Each year our education outreach programme selects new projects that will enrich and enhance students’ education while also staying relevant to the themes and issues of the current year. Check out the video below to see some examples of our previous projects:
