Drama

What is Drama for at Meridian High School?

Drama is designed to be a practical, engaging and creative subject for learners to enjoy and study.

Why does Drama as a subject matter?

It will provide opportunities to understand, create and explore life through drama and practical performances. Drama can help with students confidence, build relationships and generate different further educational paths that students didn't know existed.
