Duffy Assembly Week 10
In week 10 we were very lucky to have a Duffy Hero’s Assembly. Husband and wife team Mary Kippenberger. ( storyteller) and Peter Charlton-Jones. (musician) had travelled up from Otane to tell us about themselves, as well as rope us into some very hilarious role playing.
They were very eager for some actors to help them out, and lucky for them we have a great range of budding young actors in our school. Joedy, Tegan and Jack Karekare had us all laughing with their amusing impersonations of the Huntsman, Little Red, and the wolf (in Grandmas clothing). They also had a great selection of talent helping them out when discussing the story of Henny Penny, including the acting skills of Miss Grover and Whaea Eds!
Peter and Mary left our school very impressed with how well our kids did and are certain they may see some of them on stage in a few years time (maybe even on Shortland Street?) We are also very thankful for all the books, which they presented to us. Know doubt the kids will be reading up a storm, as Peter had told them the best way to get an amazing imagination is to read.
