To say that we were treated like royalty would be an understatement. When our parents dropped us off the high school students were ready and waiting for us with individual name tags. They ushered us off to their theatre and we took our seats. All the big kids were so kind to us. When then got to see the stories come to life.
For the first story they had even arranged for some of us to be in the play. They gave us special masks. It was a lot of fun.
Here are some pictures of some of the other stories being acted out.
You can see here how focussed we were on the plays. You can also see that we are in their theatre so it really felt like we were watching real plays. They big kids even took the time to chose images as the back drop, and they had sound affects too. They did a lot of work creating these plays.
After we saw a few plays Mr. Tong's class brought us some snacks that they had cooked themselves. We had delicious zuchini chocolate chip muffins, and yogurt with fruit. They really did make us feel special.
Before we had to head back to Bonaccord, their principal came and talk to us too. She welcomed us to her school.
But before we left we still had two more plays to see. These students created the stories differently though. These students made video stories. Unfortunately we only had time to watch one of them but it was really good. Ms. Lirenman says we'll get to see the second one really shortly, but back at our school.
Overall it was a really great field trip. The high school children took such good care of us and treated us so well. In fact the entire project was a great adventure. A huge thank you goes to Ms. Lees and Mrs. Oakland for working so well with us. And another special thank you to Mr. Tong for provding such yummy snack. It's fun learning with High School children. Have you ever done that before?
