About the Interschool Competitions

The three interschool competitions are designed to allow students the best chance of feeling competitive and competent within their particular age groups. The middle school competition is designed to allow the District High Schools to attend. The programme consists of 2 compulsory workshops and a show. The programme is held over a weekend with the show on the Monday night to maximise country involvement. As the workshops are compulsory (we only allow a student to miss 3 hours with a good reason).

The workshops are always a high energy affair that builds comrardary and cooperation between teams. Our experience is that students have developed and sustained friendships for years following the event. They are also learn and hone their improvisation skills.

The shows/competitions allow the students to experience the mix of improvised theatre and team sports. The workshop process allows them to compete and support each other at he same time.

To promote this we have developed the show to be 4 sections:

1. The Entrance

This is a chance for the team to develop and rehearse a short slick entrance. This allows the team to build support form the audience and demonstrate their togetherness.

2. The Games

Teams play 2 improvisation games which are drawn from a hat. This allows them to demonstrate their improvisation skills and team cohesiveness in playing. The games are selected to ensure success within their developmental level.

3. Individual Games

Players compete against players from other teams for points in a variety of pressure storytelling games.

4. Co-operating with competitors

Teams nominate players to play with team members from other schools. They have to play and cooperate with their competitors in order to gain maximum points for the game. This is a structure not available in most other sports.

The teams compete for a large trophy (deliberately chosen to dwarf the sporting trophies in the school cabinet). This will presented in person by Angela and Michael- giving further credance to the win.
