Ask Hatshepsut Performance

In Week 2 the Year 7 Students enjoyed the dramatic performance of Ask Hatshepsut in the Flynn theatre. This informative and high energy performance drew upon many of the themes that the Year 7 students have been studying in class this term. The themes explored the role of the Pharaoh, religious beliefs and even bad Dad jokes to deliver an alternative means of curriculum delivery.

Many thanks to Mr Simon Butler, the Curriculum Coordinator of History, for organising this presentation.
