Our Drama program is designed to encourage, develop, and strengthen the self-confidence and caring nature of our students. To speak, perform, or stand in front of an audience and/or peers takes incredible courage. With the support and encouragement of friends and teachers, this is possible. Public speaking is a large part of an educational future, and it is important to prepare our students to feel comfortable and confident in this role.
Role playing is a key component of our Drama curriculum. Evoking the imagination of a student by role playing can help children empathize and sympathize with a variety of opinions and thus better understand human nature. By expressing themselves in a healthy, fun and supportive environment, students gain confidence in a job well done.
Each year, our student body at RHMS dedicates hours of hard work to our large-scale productions. Family and friends are invited to join us to support and appreciate our Fine Arts & Drama Program. Students fill various roles in the shows from choir and band, to classroom performances, prop building, scene painting, stage coordination, and major roles in the Grade Five to Eight production.
