Secondary students from Garden International School (GIS) Rayong enjoyed drama workshops led by visiting actor, writer and director Daniel Foley. Daniel, who has appeared in more than 200 stage productions in 70 countries, was in school on January 25.

In the morning there were sessions for Key Stage 3 and IB students, where they learned about meter in Shakespeare, Japanese Kabuki theatre techniques of centering and movement, masks and monologues.

We are very grateful for Daniel for coming to share his expertise with our students. Thanks also to Mrs Grisdale and Mr Lund for organizing the event.
