Our Northgate’s News Team decided they wanted to interview Mr Dungar, who teaches Drama at Northgate. Here’s what they found out.
What was your favourite subject when you were at school?
Geography. I loved being outside when I was younger.
What is your favourite movie or play?
Alien vs Predator (film) and The Woman in Black (play).
Who’s your favourite actor?
Patrick Stewart. He also inspired me to be a teacher.
What’s your favourite Shakespeare play?
Macbeth. I like many plays that include death as one of their themes!
Which do you prefer, dogs or cats?
Dogs, I have two dogs called Albus and Phoenix.
Why did you want to be a Drama teacher?
Primarily I love the escapism of drama, the ability to be in the American West for one hour and then in the 1900’s playing Charlie Chaplin through Slapstick.
Have you taught any other subjects apart from Drama?
I have taught drama for eleven years but also English, ICT, Citizenship and Ethics.
What hobbies do you have?
I am very keen on my motorsport and I am often found at a local racing circuit at the weekends. I have travelled the world following F1 over the last few years including trips to Belgium, France and Hungary.
If you had to describe Northgate in 3 words, what would they be?
Respectful, ambitious and innovative.
What is the best thing about being a teacher?
I have always found it exciting and fulfilling when students take a brief for a performance and develop the drama into a piece that I would never have thought of or imagined to be possible.
Which famous actor would you like to play you in a movie or play about your life and why?
I would love Patrick Stewart to do a biography. I think our joint passion for Shakespeare performances would complicate each other in a film.
A big thank you to Mr Dungar for answering the questions – it’s always great to find out a bit more about our Northgate members of staff!
