Permission Note – IP and GP Trials
As part of their preparation for HSC Drama, Year 12 Drama students are required to attend three whole-day rehearsals in the PAC to ready them for both their IP and GP Trials, and their HSC practical exams. These HSC practical exams comprise 60% of the students’ external mark.
The Individual Project Trial exam takes place on Tuesday 15 June. The Group Performance Trial examination is on Tuesday 20 July at 4pm. Both are closed exams. The Trial examinations are official assessment tasks so there will be at least two outside markers present to assess the students’ work at both evenings; this is standard practice across the state.
In the lead up to the examinations we are providing students with compulsory workshop and rehearsal opportunities with outside Drama practitioners in addition to full-time Drama staff. Please note that one of these dates is in the upcoming holiday period.
Permission slips are due by Friday 18 June please.
- GP and IP Holiday Incursion – Wednesday 7 July (9am-3pm in the PAC)
- GP and IP Incursion – Friday 16 July (periods 1-6 in the PAC)
- IP and GP Final HSC technical rehearsal – Tuesday 10 August (periods 1-6 in the PAC)
Please ensure students are prompt to these sessions. The cost of these workshops is $180.00 and will be charged to your final school account. The students are fortunate to be getting advice from leading Drama practitioners.
After the External Performance examination in Week 6 next term, we will be inviting you to a Drama showcase evening where there will be both group and individual performances on Tuesday 24 August at 4.30pm. Coffee, tea and light refreshments will be provided 30 minutes before the performance examinations commence in the PAC foyer.
I look forward to seeing you there.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at the Waverley College Drama department.
