National Youth Drama School

ih-may2016-lydia-hillThis year we had eleven students attend the National Youth Drama School (NYDS) held during the holidays. NYDS is an annual event held at Havelock North High School. More than 250 students, aged 14 -19, from all over New Zealand attend each year.

With more than 18 classes to choose from, Woodford students took part in make-up and costume design, screen acting, musical theatre, sound and lighting, circus skills and directing.

‘It was a hectic but rewarding nine days of learning new skills and meeting new people.’

Laura Matthews, Arts Prefect
