Each year, thousands of students apply for Direct School Admission for Secondary Schools (DSA-Sec), based on a wide range of talents, including the following:
Sports and games
Visual, literary and performing arts
Debate and public speaking
Science, mathematics and engineering
Languages and humanities
Leadership (for example, prefects)
Yes, you obviously need a good PSLE outcome but here's a golden opportunity to use your creativity to get an admission into the school of your dreams.
At Play Acting Drama Centre, we've made this journey an easier path for your child.
CREATING A DRAMA PORTFOLIO
According to the MOE website, "Schools have different selection processes but, in general, applicants must be able to demonstrate their talent, potential, passion and character through their school track record and online DSA applications." One of the criteria listed is that the child could have "held a role in a play or performance". The importance of creating a credible drama portfolio therefore must be understood and worked on.
WORKING THROUGH THE BEST STANDARDS OF VOCAL TECHNIQUES AND BODY LANGUAGE
Every technique we teach our students goes into creating a strong foundation in terms of vocality and physicality. One of the essential by-products of this process is to build confidence in the student.
CREDIBLE INTERVIEW TECHNIQUES
Every student is taken through techniques which enable them to tackle their final interviews with confidence and finesse. We will be preparing our students with routine and non-routine questions (we have an exhaustive question bank) and the ability to speak up in a group interview, should they have one. This skill is not just a must for DSA but also an essential life skill to have!
For more information on these modules, please register, in order to help us plan the perfect DSA pathway for your child. This is applicable for students who wish to enter the DSA-Sec School process through any of the categories listed by MoE.
