Communicate, Co-operate and Connect. Drama is a way of exploring how we think, feel and communicate. It teaches us to understand ourselves and other people much better.
The Kavanagh College Drama Department is dedicated to providing the 21st-century student with the necessary skills, both artistic and personal, needed to meet the demands of all aspects of learning in an ever-changing world.
Each time we engage in the imaginative world of Drama, we enhance our own sense of self and our understanding of the nature of humanity.
