A creative storytelling workshop for Primary Students
This storytelling workshop is a fun and creative way for students to develop their speaking, listening and storytelling skills. Students will learn about the structure and stages of a narrative, while using both language and non-verbal communication skills such as tone of voice, face and body.
A professional storyteller will guide the students in a jointly composed story, encouraging students to share original and imaginative ideas, while participating in a series of dramatisations.
This curriculum-linked workshop will provide a unique opportunity for students to develop crucial interaction, presentation and listening skills while exploring the inner world of their imagination.

Sydney Opera House uses Zoom to deliver its Digital Creative Learning and Creative Leadership in Learning programs. The NSW Department of Education has approved the use of Zoom for all year levels.
Sydney Opera House maintains an enterprise licence for Zoom and secures its Zoom sessions by using passwords. Zoom protects participants’ privacy by letting them blur out everything in the camera’s field of view, except themselves. Sydney Opera House does not record these sessions through Zoom’s built-in recording feature or through other means except with participants’ consent.
To interact with Sydney Opera House using Zoom you need to either know the password for that specific session, or have the meeting link with the embedded password.
To ensure your students get the most out of the experience, a Teachers’ Resource Pack is available for this program (see the top of the page). We recommend using these resources in advance of your digital excursion.
Each booking entitles you to one connection (meaning that all students will be joining the call from the one space). If you would like to book for multiple classrooms to attend at one time you will just need to make an additional booking and correctly record the number of students in each group.
