On Wednesday 25th November we had a whole school French day with a puppet theatre incursion and dress-up. The school yard looked very colourful with the French colours bleu, blanc and rouge, and many students dressed as characters from Cinderella.
The Junior School Hall was temporarily converted into a theatre and students watched a bilingual performance of Cendrillon which complemented their French studies this year. Carousel Theatre is a puppetry theatre company based in Melbourne. It originated in Paris and has been performing in Australia since 1998 with shows that are especially crafted for school students learning a new language. The stories are based on original tales that are adapted for puppetry.
