Mary Kippenberger and Peter Charlton-Jones visited our school today and presented two seperate storytelling sessions, the first to the year 3-8 children and the second to a mix of Patutahi Playcentre children. Pakohai Kohanga Reo and our own year 1 and 2’s
I can quite safely say that all who attended throughly enjoyed and appreciated what they saw , learned and participated in.
To beable to present learning opportunities to such a wide age range of very diverse children and have them all benefit greatly from the experience takes real skill and passion, both of which Mary and Peter have oodles of.
As a principal i am always keen to hear when mary is in town as the children always get so much out of what she has to present to them. Great props, great stories and great talent. We look forward to hosting Mary and Peter in our school again.
