Learning how to walk like an Egyptian is not easy! Its taken weeks. Its taken blood, sweat and tears (mainly the teachers!). It’s been amazing.
Our Elementary students and teachers have worked tirelessly on presentations to deliver to an audience of their peers. They’ve prepared costumes, practiced plays and dances as well as made their own models and Powerpoint presentations. Flying Foxes and Eagle Rays then took this amazing show on the road and visited one of the local schools. Over 400 students and staff turned up to watch and our pupils didn’t bat an eyelid when faced with so many spectators.
In front of this large crowd our kids did an amazing job. Their presentations covered fascinating subjects including Egyptian Codes, Magic and Gods which the visitors listened to raptly. When the props came out there were gasps of wonder from those watching – they clearly didn’t expect to see the Sphinx, pyramids or a sarcophagus in the middle of Dauin. The drama enacted by our children was engaging, telling two of the famous stories of Egyptian mythology and of course everyone, audience included, joined in when it was time to walk like an Egyptian.
As well as providing entertainment for local school children there were a wide range of skills covered by this project. These included: creativity, use of technology, literacy, numeracy, task management and the biggest challenge, presenting to a group of strangers. Throughout the process our children and teachers worked really hard and their joy on their presentation’s success made it all worth it – awesome work everyone!
