The Blue Butterfly
On Saturday Mrs Hyde spent the day with the drama students at Trillion Trees, culminating with the performance of The Blue Butterfly at 2pm. Working collaboratively with Bassendean PS, our children had workshopped the story of the blue butterfly with Noel Nannup. This aboriginal story tells of how the ants protect the blue butterfly’s egg until it hatches. A puppeteer helped the students build the puppets they used on the day. The way the children worked together to bring the puppets to life was amazing to watch and the theme of looking after our environment was threaded through the whole process.
A huge thank you to Trillion Trees for involving us in the project, to the wonderful Mrs Galley and to the amazing children who have been involved after school as part of the drama club.
