The Prep classes recently had a fabulous incursion. It was gorgeous. Kevin from “Evergreen Puppet Theatre” took us on a calming, educational journey through an imaginary rainforest, called “Rainforest Experience”.
All through the presentation, we listened to a relaxing soundtrack of rainforest sounds and gentle music. Through Kevin’s use of puppets, we were introduced to many shy creatures of the rainforest, including a scrub turkey, pademelon, a red-eyed green tree frog, and many beautiful birds including a kingfisher and a satin bower bird, who loves to collect blue objects for his nest (bower) to attract a mate. They almost seemed like real creatures!
Kevin spoke about how we can care for this precious environment by making sure we don’t drop litter and how when we enter a rainforest we should “stop, look and listen”. Each class was spellbound for the whole presentation. It inspired some very nice writing pieces afterwards.
