All the best to everyone in Melbourne and regional Victoria with their students undertaking solo performance exams in Year 12 Drama and monologue performance exams in Year 12 Theatre Studies.
It is a stressful time of year for both teachers and students of these disciplines. It is also an emotional time, as students gear up for their creative triumphs (or not!) in the exam room.
These performance exams are tough tasks even for the most experienced and capable of teachers. While ‘scary’ may be an appropriate description if you are a graduate teacher with students doing these exams. But the rewards are many and the deep knowledge gained from undertaking these tasks is very worthwhile, indeed.
