Students are encouraged to develop performance skills within the core and elective programs available at South Oakleigh College. Every year the school produces a musical theatre production whereby students of all year levels are able to take part in a whole school theatrical experience. This year the school produced “Hairspray Jr” to the students delight. It was a very energetic and lively show, which the students all thoroughly enjoyed.
The production is encouraged at South Oakleigh College as it promotes:
- Self esteem and confidence
- Teamwork and cooperation
- An opportunity for students of all year levels to work together in a friendly and nurturing environment.
