Every building has them. Those spaces and places that can sometimes go unoccupied or unused because they don’t fall under the idea of a typical locale for learning. With the revamping and restructuring of so many classrooms to break free of the traditional desks, rows, and conformity, it’s time to start thinking even further outside of the classroom box and start tapping into other areas in the building. School auditoriums are a great place to start. Teachers should be scrambling to get their classes into it and let learning take center stage!
Any “trip” outside of the classroom adds a little extra excitement to the school day routine. It can also add a big impact when it comes to learning. What better place is there to have students try their acting chops from Romeo and Juliet or The Diary of Anne Frank than on an actual stage? Scene direction and staging take on a whole new meaning when students are able to visualize the story unfolding on the stage. This gives classes a great opportunity to gain an appreciation for all the nuances that go into playwriting and screenwriting. It is also a great strategy to boost reading comprehension by giving students a tangible visualization of the text.
It's more than just the stage. The stage is a great place for groups to perform, guest speakers to enlighten, and students to present in a more formalized setting. While the stage is the major focal point in an auditorium, it’s not the largest space. The seating area offers a lot of opportunities for teachers of all subjects to get creative.
AJC school houses a spacious air conditioned auditorium with a seating capacity of about 600 and is well equipped with the audio-visual facilities providing the best acoustics and light systems. The sound proof auditorium with ample seating is planned to host major events, festivals, debates concerts, celebrations etc., for students which they will cherish and look forward to. The places give a variety of exposure to students in showcasing their talents and groom their skills. The acoustical design of our auditorium is different than that of any other high school space, because of the specific demands of performing arts, which distinguishes the auditorium and will provide many students their first introduction in performing arts, both as audiences as performers.
