The Arts: Australian Curriculum (final) Published
Several years in the making, today represents the publication of Drama as one of the five studies of The Arts represented in the new Australian Curriculum.
It should indeed be a day to celebrate, especially when one considers countries, state or territories where Drama/Theatre is not a mandated subject in the curriculum or a standalone study (eg. Drama will be part of English in the new National Curriculum in England).
Drama is a vital and robust part of the curriculum in most states of Australia and we look forward to our schoolchildren continuing to experience the joys of drama education in the future, now the subject is officially represented in the incoming national curriculum.
