Kim Bonnington has agreed to write our study resources. Read more about her below.

The resources, the Q&A and a digital filming of the work form part of Young & Hungry’s commitment to provide more curriculum support for the EnsembleImpact National Schools Tour.

The resources will include pre and post show activities that will explore drama techniques, conventions etc.

Kim Bonnington works as an accredited Arts Facilitator for Education Support Services for the University of Otago.  She has most recently been an Arts facilitator on the Secondary Student Achievement Contract, working with Secondary School teachers on developing Culturally Responsive practice within Teaching as Inquiry projects.

She has a long history of service on the Drama New Zealand Executive and has held a number of different contracts in the development of NCEA.  She is particularly interested in how students respond to theatre according to their own language, identity and culture and will be using this as her core pedagogical practice in her work designing the education packs and workshops.​

Comments from teachers on the 2017 resource kit: 

“These are superb and will be very useful to prepare students for the external exams.”

“Excellent detail and depth.”

“It also helps that you have worked alongside a drama teacher to create resources that directly align with what we teach in the classroom.”
