The Drama Club is first and foremost a team. All our members are valued and everyone is given opportunities to participate in drama performances be it as crew members or actors.  The Drama Club strives to develop professionalism in our members through different forms of theatre performances.  We also aim to raise awareness on social issues through working with external organisations such as Singapore Association for Mental Health (SAMH).

During drama sessions, members learn essential acting skills and develop stage awareness. On top of these technical skills, the members also get to learn how to improvise, think creatively and work together as a team. Besides acting, members have opportunities to adopt the roles of scriptwriter, stage manager or light and sound crew. Our members are also encouraged to take turns to lead the warm-up sessions and games. Through these activities, Drama Club members build their confidence and develop leadership skills.

In April this year, the Drama Club participated in re:ACT, an annual Theatre for Social Advocacy Festival, organised by inwardBOUND. It showcased performances by Secondary school students representing the causes of different charities.  Our Drama Club students also took part in a youth education workshop organised by SAMH to understand more about depression. They created a script based on their research findings and put up a meaningful performance on the challenges faced by youth suffering from depression. A Drama Club member clinched the ‘Best Actress’ award for her effort. 

In Semester 2, the Drama Club explored different scripts for our 
Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation 2019 performance. The members were grouped into 3 teams, each with their own script. All members were assigned acting roles in their respective teams and they devised interesting ways of presenting the stories through creative staging and characterization. We had an internal showcase in Term 3 where all teams put up great performances.

This has been a meaningful year for the Drama Club and we look forward to doing our best for the performances in 2019!
