Drama Club Performance for Central Clean and Green Carnival
Farrer Park Primary has been invited to participate in the launch of the Central Clean and Green Carnival organised by National Environment Agency on 19 November this year. 

The pupils from the Drama Club put up a play- Peggy the Pint-sized Pirate, at the carnival's launch to share with the members of the public the importance of reducing waste and the impact that littering has on the environment. The guest of honour for the carnival was the Minister of State for Health, Dr Lam Pin Min. 

The pupils had a fabulous time being Green Ambassadors as they advocated the importance of keeping Singapore clean and green at the carnival.

National Story Challenge

Pupils who have been identified to have a flair for acting and public speaking would be encouraged to join the Drama Club. The Drama Club has been providing various platforms for the budding talents to build their skills and confidence as actors. 

This year, we sent 3 groups of pupils to participate in the National Story Challenge, a National improvisational storytelling competition, organised jointly by the National Library Board and Theatre Practice (a Theatre Company). 2 of the 3 groups were from the Drama Club and they did exceedingly well for the competition! We are very proud of our pupils who have demonstrated resilience and confidence throughout this competition!

The Drama Club is the chief anchor of excellence to the iDREaM programme. The Drama Club in FPPS aims to bring theatre to the community. 

The club is divided into two groups- Production group and Modular group.

Core members of the Drama Club form the Production group. They are involved in staging performances for the various school events that take place in the year. The budding talents of these members are developed through a structured actor training programme for the whole year.

The Drama Club has been committed to bringing theatre to the community since it was formed in 2011. 

In March 2015, the Drama Club has gained yet another milestone for the school. We staged our very first ticketed public production “Forgiven- A Fairy Tale” at 16 Winstedt Road on 14 March 2015. After 6 months of rigourous training, our young actors have blossomed in their own ways and put up a spectacular show! The play was a great success and all 674 tickets were sold out! 

Here are some highlights from the production.  

 


Participation in Project Earth


As part of our efforts of citizenship education in school, the Drama Club members play an active role in communicating the importance of recycling to the community.

For the past 2 years, we have been partnering National Environment Agency (NEA) to put up a skit on recycling at the Project Earth Roadshow.

This year, members from the Drama Club would be participating as well!
