Approved Specialist Programs
Contemporary Drama Specialist Program
Belmont City College offers your child the ability to access a Contemporary Drama Specialist program that is at the forefront of Dramatic Arts education in WA public schools.
The College’s NIDA trained teaching staff offer a unique program for students who are gifted and talented in performance arts.
Students entering the program in Year 8 undertake a Drama major, allowing them to access 50% more Drama tuition than other students. The program’s performance focus sees students attend an annual week-long Drama camp and participate in a Drama Showcase, where Drama students perform for over two thousand primary school students.
In addition to completing courses of study, upper school students’ Drama training is extended through extracurricular courses, such as short courses offered through Australia’s National Institute of Dramatic Art, when available.
