Dramatic activity is already a natural part of most children’s lives before they start school in the form of make-believe play, enabling them to make sense of their own identity by exploring meaningful fictional situations that have parallels in the real world. At Beaumont Primary we tap into this natural ability, by affording learners the opportunity of developing skills such as creativity, communication, empathy, self-confidence, cooperation, leadership and negotiation.
Drama classes are available for both juniors and seniors. Learners are cast in annual mini productions and every 3 years, the drama department produces a musical involving the whole school. The drama department is also responsible for entering and coaching learners in both the Stellenbosch and the Helderberg dramatic art eisteddfods.
