Spare Parts aims to create experiences that compliment and enhances the teaching process, while finding meaningful ways to link to the curriculum

Our performances encourage students to respond, examine and interpret the text, exploring meaningful ways to connect with the story and the art form and address many general capabilities including Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability, Ethical Understanding and Intercultural Understanding.

Extensive and detailed Teachers’ Notes are distributed with each booking. These include classroom activities and learning tools that have been developed by teachers, for teachers.

If you’re a teacher that would like to help us create the educational resource packs that we distribute to teachers, or if you’re interested in learning more about our Teachers Reference Group, email admin@sppt.asn.au


"The teacher resources are particularly excellent and thorough. I will definitely keep the pack for ideas in other learning areas."
- Teacher, Bicton Primary School
