Many weeks of preparation go into the class plays that showcase the students’ talents, with students eager to get on stage and show their families and friends what they can do.
“We are delighted that this program is in its 16th year," said St Joseph's teacher Shane Cleaver.
"Since its inception, JAFA has been a springboard for learning, developing skills in communication, language and performance."
St Joseph's recognises that drama is a powerful means for developing expression and self-awareness.
“Parents know that drama is part of a child’s learning from a young age and unlocks imagination, and with it, intellect," said Mr Cleaver.
"As well as this, the drama experience helps to develop both empathy and courage in students as this in itself reflects the core work of the primary school; to think and create, to communicate effectively and express oneself, and to encourage a love of learning.”
