The ‘Drama in Action’ Project is delivered in Primary Schools throughout Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo. The project is curriculum based, with a blend of Drama and Education allowing the children the opportunity to learn and absorb knowledge through experience and self discovery.
Some of the benefits of the Drama in Action Project are:
It encourages teamwork, promoting understanding and feeling for the ideas of others
Students who participate on the programme show definite improvements in concentration skills, creative thinking, listening, oral responses and problem solving.
The programme allows teachers to see first-hand the implementation of Drama in a practical manner and to learn implementation methodologies.
