Love of Drama and working with youth have been the motivating factors behind JETS. We are in our 16th year and yet again we feel blessed and confident that this year promises to be bigger and better. Students have grown with us over the last 16 years and have been very successful in the industry i.e. WAAPA, Short Films, Advertisements, TV series, plays and feature films. We are so fortunate to have so many talented students as part of the JETS family.
Ros is constantly thriving to expand her knowledge of the dramatic art form and undertake many theatre workshops (acting and backstage). Ros has made many contacts in the industry, which extends the JETS network not just to nationally but to the internationally as well. Ros was invited to the inaugural Kuala Lumpur International Comedy Festival to run Children's Comedy Workshops and to also manage the international Comedians. She was also part of the Festival that extended throughout Malaysia with the Laugh Malaysia tour.
Ros' focus is on student-centred learning and promoting a positive fun environment where everyone is treated equal and given a voice to be heard. Her dynamic classes give students a forum to express themselves whilst having fun in a non-threatening environment.
"My greatest reward as a teacher is student success and I still cry every time one of our students does something that I have helped them have the confidence to undertake. I always follow through with each student’s dreams and goals and hope I have helped make their wings strong enough to fly and to soar to greater heights."
Ros is truly excited to have such a fantastic team working with her. All staff promote a friendly family atmosphere at JETS and hold true to the fact that everyone will “Be Scene and Heard”!
