Speaking about her Drama Club students (Jelena, Milica, Sophia, Lucia, Alisa, Mahsheed and Darina), their teacher, Masha Dakic said that in preparation for the play they had all shown great enthusiasm and willingness w to try out different strategies that would improve their acting skills.
Learning Drama is also a valuable tool for building good interpersonal relationships, communication skills, trust, self-confidence and self-awareness.
Through various assignments, scenes or situations the students found themselves in a team work situation, and were able to explore how they present themselves, and how they position themselves amongst others. The final version of the “Noises off” Secondary School play was a brave step into the public.
In addition to the play, There were pop songs given by Fiona, Maggie, Katarina, Natasha, Ana, Una, Sven, Marija and Uros.
