In HD schools, the educational drama is a compulsory course. Through the rehearsals and performances of dramas, students will experience the color of life.
Educational Drama course in HD schools does not take performance as the primary and sole purpose but uses "drama" and "theatre" as teaching medium and means to design teaching activities with a high degree of integration of artistic and educational nature, including games, role-playing, situational experience and imagination, art appreciation and creation, etc., to enhance students' comprehensive abilities such as vision and mindedness, emotion and aesthetics, imagination and creation, and critical thinking.
In the middle school period, we will introduce the original English educational drama course from our sister school, Hurtwood House School. This will not only enable students to hone and improve their English skills, adapt to cultural differences in advance, but also improve the ability of confident expression that Chinese students often lack. Besides, for those students who have a hobby of drama and expression, the original course with professional guidance from drama masters is undoubtedly the best soil for specialty development.
