Our Workshops

As a part of the Outreach Programme our team can work with your students at your school. These programmes provide valuable learning experiences for 4-12 year old pupils. Using creative arts and drama we encourage pupils to think and act, creatively by giving them the opportunity to delve into the creative process.  These workshops will bring their incredible potential to the forefront, helping them become confident human beings and have fun discovering, designing and creating.

Our CPD courses approved by the Department of Education and Skills 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 which 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.

School tours are one of the most important elements in education and demonstrate that learning is possible outside of the school. It’s a very effective means of education to which children look forward to during their school time. Many teachers think that school tours help students engage faster, inspires them, opens up many opportunities and creates fond memories. Tours can help put the learning subject into context for students in order for them to better understand and learn. For teachers, the tours can help them get to know their students better, discover their abilities, enhances students’ intellectual abilities, as well as re-engage and communicate better. It will also be a great addition in developing teaching methods.
