The Hong Kong School Drama Festival (the Festival) aims to encourage primary and secondary schools to develop drama as a regular co-curricular activity in school. By participating in drama training and performance, students can achieve a balanced and whole-person development with enriched learning experiences. The activity is partially subsidised by the Lok Sin Tong Benevolent Society, Kowloon. The events of the Festival will be organised in three phases, i.e. the Training Phase, the School Performance Phase and the Public Performance Phase. To facilitate schools' production of plays in the School Performance Phase, participating primary and secondary schools will receive a cash grant for each drama team. Each drama team invited to perform in the Public Performance Phase will be eligible for an additional cash grant.

 

Drama performances are categorised under three language groups:
