Let’s Find Out

One of the graduation projects created by DADP students, the Let’s Find Out programme aimed to provide an avenue for a group of young children to seek their own answers and learning. The children were guided on a journey to identify and deal with their fears and insecurities about making the transition from kindergarten to primary school.

Uniquely Me!

The Uniquely Me! Programme – a graduation project created by DADP students – aimed to highlight a child’s individual uniqueness through eight sessions of process drama workshops. Dramatising the story of Lester, a shy and reserved 10-year-old boy, the participants worked hard in the drama to help Lester overcome his social problems and accept being himself.

Recess Time

The Recess Time interactive performance – a graduation project by DADP students – reached out to teenagers with the aim of informing and educating them about various eating disorders and dispelling certain dieting and exercise myths. It also emphasised the need for teenagers to recognise the importance of their self-value. The programme was a huge success as the issues discussed were close to the participants’ hearts.

Project H.O.P.E.

Working in collaboration with the Singapore Children’s Society (SCS), 10 DADP students spent their school holidays with children living in rental flats in Bedok. The students identified issues they thought would resonate with the children – for instance bullying, gangsterism, single-parent families and financial issues – and wrote the script for Choices, an interactive performance that the children enjoyed immensely.

Journeys 2010

The pioneer DADP cohort showcased all their final-year projects in Journeys 2010, researching and designing applied drama programmes for various communities and teaming up with industry partners to touch real lives. Our projects included working on bullying and AIDS awareness for the Health Promotion Board and an art appreciation programme for the Singapore Art Museum.

Exploring Appreciation to Parents

The Graduation Project requires DADP students to undertake research on a specific community group and its related issues. The students then conceptualise, pitch and deliver an applied drama programme for the group as target participants.

Through research, the DADP students found that teenagers begin to drift apart from their parents when they enter secondary school. They subsequently designed an applied drama programme for upper secondary school students to explore the topic of parental appreciation. They pitched the programme to various schools and successfully delivered the programme at Bowen Secondary School, CHIJ St. Theresa’s Convent and Lakeside Family Service Centre.
