Drama Education.jpg

Since 2013, Farrer Park Primary has a specialised Drama-in-Education programme, iDREaM, [I use DRama to EMpower (myself and others)]. iDREaM aims to use drama to empower the pupils so that they can develop their communication and critical thinking skills and grow into confident individuals.

Drama is used as a tool to teach the languages and character education. The key pillars of the programme are adapted from the United Kingdom and Ontario Drama Curriculum. The school has a 6-year plan to help all our pupils gain exposure through authentic learning experiences. The ones who show greater interest in drama as a performing art will be developed through the school’s excellent talent management programme.

In March 2016, the school’s niche in drama education was repositioned and recognised as an official Applied Learning Programme (ALP: Drama in Education).
