During 2016 several BLENNZ Napier learners have been working towards Expanded Core Curriculum goals.
Two intermediate aged learners attended the ‘Interact, Getting Dramatic’ Immersion Course held in June. In addition to attending a production of The Elephant Thief the learners explored elements of theatre, costuming, improvisation, and make-up. Through this experience the learners gained confidence in the Expanded Core Curriculum areas of; social skills, life skills, physical skills, and communication.
