Building Bicultural Understanding at Fairlie Kindergarten Toro Pikiopiko Puppets presents Rock-Art Gets Rocking!
Fairlie Kindergarten was very privileged to host the Toro Pikopiko Puppets show Te Rereka – The Flight, at kindergarten recently. Along with tamariki and whānau from the Albury and Fairlie playgroups we were treated to this fabulous puppet show that re-tells the Māori legend of the journey of Pourakahua. We have an amazing ancestry of rock art right here in our local area and it was this that inspired the writing of the show.
The wonderful storytelling skills, waiata, the inclusion of the audience and beautifully crafted wooden puppets totally captivated the audience.
Thank you to the Mid and South Canterbury trust for funding this event and to Claire Dann, a kindergarten parent and Fairlie playgroup member for applying for the funding.
