This week, 142 grade 5 students brought joy and playfulness to the stage as they reenacted the Caribbean folk tale “The Cat and The Rat”, based on the book “The Cat’s Purr” by Ashley Bryan. We are so very proud of the courage, commitment and creativity that these students demonstrated. Please enjoy the videos and photos below!

On February 12th and 13th, 142 Grade 5 students will head to the stage to enact a dramatization of the Caribbean Folk Tale, “The Cat and The Rat!” This fun, tropical show is not to be missed! Students have contributed to editing the script, choreography and sound as well as working on the costume design, stage make-up and set design!
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL – There will be live music, that has been produced by our Grade 5 students who have carefully studied traditional Caribbean dance and Calypso music for a fully authentic and original production. There will be an interactive student exhibition in the Chevron Theatre relating to the French post-impressionist painter Henri Rousseau.
Do not miss this phenomenal production, which will prove to be an audio visual sensation!
