Interpreting Māori legends through sound and movement in ECE

DATE: Monday April 6, 5.30–7.00pm
VENUE: Te Atatu South Kindergarten, 65A Divich Avenue, Te Atatu South

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we regret that this workshop has been cancelled, registrants will be contacted by the organizers regarding alternate arrangements and refunds. We hope to hold this workshop later in the year.

At the end of 2019 Robyn worked with Jacqui at Te Atatu South Kindergarten  to involve the children in a very successful project turning a Maori legend into a musical performance with the children very much as composers. They are keen to share the process they used with others with the thought that it would enable others to apply this process in other contexts.
