We have worked with many schools and students on a variety of projects throughout the years.
In every project, we carefully guided students to overcome their challenges and build effective, long-lasting skills.
Here are some that we're especially proud of.
Helping students to thrive
We are proud of our projects in a variety of schools in Hong Kong and China, assisting students to develop skills in conversational English.
Hong Kong’s universities classes are conducted in English and the school system is a tiered system according to your academic ability. Teachers felt that students needed another way of developing English.
We were approached by an Australian NET (native English teacher) to conduct improv classes in her C grade school in Apli Cha to give the students the confidence to give English ‘ a go’.
News soon spread and other NET teachers approached us, giving us the opportunity to work with many students.
We made an annual visit for many years to variety of schools and on 2 occasions a team of 5 students and a teacher came to compete in The West Australian inter school competition.
We still keep in contact with these students and 3 of them did go to universities ( one in America) , which is unheard of from a C grade school.
Bringing parents and students together
When Governor Stirling Senior High School rebuilt and renovated they were keen to encourage the primary schools in their catchment area to connect with them and make it their school of choice.
We formulated a program which brought parents and students into the school and gave them a positive and engaging experience.
AITS conducted an after school workshop series in the high school drama studio and the primary schools in the area were invited to have up to 8 children attend. Seven primary schools attended the workshops that ran for 2 hours once a week for 6 weeks and culminated in a competitive show – the Govo Cup.
AITS donated a very impressive trophy that has become a perpetual trophy.
We are proud that a large number of parents attended and we connected parents and potential students to the school which is now into its fourth year .
We were approached by the drama department at John XXlllrd in 1996 to hold an Inter-house TheatreSports competition whereby teams could compete and accumulate drama points towards the overall house competition held at the school.
We conducted a weekend workshop and the students competed on the following Tuesday evening. This has now turned into an annual event and we have seen many students rom the school move into improv comedy and other performing areas.
This has become a huge success with both students and audiences over the years. Initially it was open to any student to apply to represent their house but in recent years it has become a right of passage for year 11 and 12 students only.
We now conduct a junior high school competition to allow the younger students to experience the delights of improvisation and compete in their houses.
The shows themselves have a cult following and although they are held in the evening it tends to have more students attend than parents.
