Our secondary students recently took part in the ‘Stories on Stage’ competition held by the NET Section, EDB.
We had a team of 9 students which consisted of 4 scriptwriters, 4 actors, and one creative director. The scriptwriters collaborated to write a drama script based on a short story – No is Yes by Paul Jennings, and the actors enacted the adapted version on stage.
It was a great learning experience for the team and many congratulations to them on winning the Merit Award!
Hazel, 5C Scriptwriter
Scriptwriting has been a wonderful experience for me as it taught me the beauty of writing scenes and creating unique characters. I hope to join activities like this in the future.
Calysta, 4B Scriptwriter
Being a scriptwriter is very challenging, as we need to collaborate and cross-reference with each other by putting out ideas and coming up with an effective storyline. Teamwork and communication is the key element and I’m glad that I have been able to beat through the challenge and learn something from it. Nevertheless, it’s been a great honour to be able to contribute to the competition.
CJ, 3A Actor
First of all, thank you, Mrs. Prakash, for inviting me to join the drama team, I had lots of fun practicing for the competition. I thought we could not perform on stage, but we actually did and I’m so happy about it!
Jesus, 3A Actor
I had a wonderful experience. I improved my speaking skills and learned to be confident. If given a chance, I would totally join this competition again!
