We have had such a busy week, leading up to the end of term.
On Monday morning at 9 o’clock we had a very exciting beginning to our school week. The whole school was invited by Toro Pikopiko Puppets to watch a puppet show called Te Rerenga-the-flight, which retold Ngai Tahu legend about Pourangahua and her epic flight to Aotearoa. This was a musical show featuring life size moving plywood puppets. We were taken back in time a thousand years, where we were told the story by animating lots of rock art puppets. We were amazed to find out there were 80 puppets involved throughout the story and lots of children from the audience were chosen to take the part of the different characters.
