Congratulations to Class Four Ākonga!

Clare Goodman —

For their magnificent performance of The Theft of Thor's Hammer Mjollnir.

The play is the story of how Thor's hammer was stolen by the frost-giant Thrym.  To get his hammer back Thor must pretend to be Freya and marry the frost-giant.  Our students loved watching Thor get dressed in a wedding dress and pretend to be Freya, only to reveal his true identity and smite the frost-giants for daring to steal his hammer.

Their teacher, Louise Galpin, did an outstanding job of directing her first ever play, and did a marvelous job of matching students to parts, ensuring that all of the tamariki were able to reach their full potential.

I am already looking forward to her class play next year!
