English Literary, Drama & Debate Society (ELDDS)

ELDDS Formal.jpg


To nurture every ELDDS member into a confident and creative member, who is able to express himself/herself articulately in the realm of oratory and dramatisation via the use of English.


To expose members to different forms of dramatisation and oratorical skills and ignite a passion and love for theatre arts, argumentation and public speaking. 


This year, the Drama members saw great value in taking part in HVDF 2018, where they endeavoured to portray the importance of neighbourliness, empathy and kindness in our community. They had selected the most pertinent issue to them today and even penned down their own script ‘Neighbour Woes’ for the competition. This year also saw the Drama members embarking on a new challenge. ELDDS was ambitious and collaborated with four other Performing Arts CCA (Cultural Dance, Hip Hop, Show Choir, Symphonic Band) and the AVPA Crew to give a stunning parody performance, Aladdin’s Lump for their teachers. Yes, you’ve read it right, it’s Lump and not Lamp! The members slogged hard for two months to push themselves to the limits, by not only acting, but also dancing and singing. 
A musical in 2020 perhaps?  The members have certainly come a long way.   

2018 is also a monumental year, as we started an official Debate team to hone argumentative and oratorical skills in our Debaters. As exposure, the members had a friendly with Kranji Secondary’s Debate team in April. Next year will see the members stepping out of their comfort zone to take part in the Nationals.
