This will be an interactive sharing session for all teachers, regardless of your level of experience. So, bring along any examples you have of what you do when preparing your students for the group production. 

You will receive a professional learning certificate and you will connect with like-minded, passionate drama teachers.

Register now! Further details will be sent on your registration.

Drinks, cheese and nibbles provided so come along for a fun way to (almost) finish the year. 


We look forward to seeing you then!
