Kids love display of Will-power
TO BE or not to be?
That was just one of the questions asked when the Bell Shakespeare Company visited Girgarre Primary School to perform the Wonderful World of Will.
Set in Elizabethan England in 1599, the whirlwind play followed a fun, fictional story of William Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth I and a young student from our world.
Interwoven with Shakespeare’s romances, tragedies, histories and comedies, there was something for everyone on the day.
“It was an amazing introduction to Shakespeare for the kids,” Girgarre teacher Fiona Smith said.
Students from Merrigum, Lancaster and Stanhope primary schools also attended.
“They loved it – it was humorous and engaging with a bit of action for the boys as well,” Ms Smith said.
“We’re really lucky to have had the Bell Shakespeare Company perform for us.”
Ms Smith hopes this performance will be the first of many more drama activities at the school.
“I’d love to eventually have an actor from the company come out to visit and hold acting workshops,” she said. so far, really enjoyed the challenge.”
And there isn’t much the team can’t tackle at their workshop in Allan St.
They work on anything from mowers to tractors or they can visit you with onsite servicing.
“We also do batteries, mags and wheel alignments,” Mr Johns said.
The town’s community spirit has made it easy for Mr Johns to feel right at home.
“I love the friendly atmosphere Kyabram has,” he said.
“Everyone looks after one another and it gives the town a great feeling. I’m extremely pleased to be a part of it.”
As part of Ky in July, Kyabram Tyre Service will be offering 20 per cent off a selected range from July 1 to 7.
