Rossbourne School is an independent secondary school catering for students with additional needs who do not meet the criteria for a special school but still require a more supported environment than a mainstream school may be able to provide. Students who attend have a range of developmental or mental health issues such as, for example, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Severe Language Disorder, Specific Learning Difficulties, mild cognitive impairment.
Students audition for the selected musical or volunteer for back stage roles. The School Production is a highlight of the school year for both the cast and crew and their families, and the student body and staff. It is directed by the School’s Performing Arts Coordinator.
The role for the ACU Community Engagement student is a fairly open one, depending on areas of interest within performing arts or if you have a skill set you might want to offer. A number of staff and students support the Director in roles such as lighting, costumes, props, set design and building, vocal training, choreography etc. and the ACU Community Engagement role would assist as agreed with the Director.
This position would suit someone with a particular interest in the performing arts or related fields and who enjoys supporting young people in their personal growth.
