“This program above all helps to increase confidence and self esteem, in particular with our students who come from such diverse backgrounds. I find it helps girls from countries where women don’t have a voice to become more self-sufficient and independent.”
– Drama Teacher, Dianella Secondary College
Keen to know if we do Outreach?
Yes we do!
Act-Belong-Commit Outreach offers theatre extension activities to secondary students in low socio-economic, or low-ICSEA, Perth metro schools at no cost to schools or participants. Centred on performance and theatre-making, this program is a great first experience of WAYTCo for new, diverse, and non-traditional participants, and a stepping stone into our other performance programs.
In 2022 the program will be presented in an 8-week, 1hr/week format. We will work with customisation requests where possible, (e.g. 4x 2hr long sessions, or 2x 4-week programs), and schools may certainly request a shorter program, however, there is a cap of 8hrs/school.
Outreach is delivered by practicing professional artists who are scheduled following careful vetting and consideration of their experience teaching young people, especially kids at risk.
PLEASE NOTE: This program is not intended to be used to assist drama teachers with their direct workload (i.e. with curriculum delivery or putting on school productions), rather it should value-add to classroom teaching. Program roll-out is dependent on tutor availability.
Schools Outreach 2022 arises from our partnership with Healthway and proudly carries the Act Belong Commit health message.
