Curriculum Development
The Centre continued to offer and monitor the two
specially designedApplied Learning Courses:
to Theatre Arts and Taking a Chance on Dance
as part
of the secondary curriculum for the Education Bureau.
In the 2008 cohort, 69 secondary students were enrolled
in the courses. Also, an Assessment Handbook for the
Introduction to Theatre Arts
was jointly developed by the
Centre andHong Kong Examination Assessment Authority.
The Centre also renders consultancy services on
performing arts education to schools and educational
institutions, and gives recommendations/references
on suitable teaching professionals. In 2008/2009, the
Centre provided a consultancy service to the Lok Sin
Tong Wong Chung Ming Secondary School for tailoring
a school-based drama education programme to their
Form Three students. The School has further engaged
the Centre to develop a school-based performing arts
education programme for three consecutive years from
2009/2010 onwards.
