Lower Primary students performed a small play called ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’. The children knew their lines and practiced very hard, they all moved like the animals and spoke very loudly and clear. They invited Lower Primary 2 to watch and then we talked about books, characters and why stories have “mean” and “kind” characters and how it relates to real life. The children really enjoyed the play and conversation with great input.
A paramedic from St Johns Ambulance group came to school to talk to the children about being a paramedic and demonstrate the equipment. The children had a wonderful time learning through this hands on experience.
