Bridging the Generations

I’ve had a wonderful experience working with the children from Blackheath Public School.

Sheryl Cootes, the Assistant Principal, and Jo Davies from the Blackheath Community Centre, and I worked together on a play version of Wilfred Gorgon Patrick Mcdonald. In the book version the little boy helps an old lady find her memory.

Thirteen kids performed it on the 27th May to the residents at Morven Gardens – an aged care facility in the Blue Mountains of Australia.

Both young and old had a wonderful time and many memories were shared. Later in the year I’ll work with the residents and we will perform a reciprocal play for the children!

Here are some photos of  rehearsals in the school hall.

The children learnt how to walk and act like old people!
