School Talk Delhi

This morning I gave a ¬†Storytelling Session and talk at the DPS International School in Delhi. We were greeted by the Senior Headmistress, Ms Suman Takkru, and after a nice cool drink were taken to the auditorium where 60 Year 7 students were waiting very quietly. In fact I didn’t even know they were there until they stood up.

I used my Australian animal puppets to tell the story of Tiddalik. Then to the background of didgeridoo music I told the Aboriginal dreaming story, “The Rainbow Bird”.

I then retold “The Loaded Dog” by Henry Lawson: my own adapted version!! This was followed by one of my own stories, “Black Menace” about the killing of a black snake.

I finished off with “Thukeri” with some didgeridoo accompaniment.

I then read two stories which I had written since visiting India last year. This was followed by a question time during which many very interesting questions were asked. Later in the Principal’s Office, after lunch, I was interviewed by two students for the School magazine.

I was presented with a beautiful pure silk scarf as a thankyou from the school.

Good Listeners!

  2. Hi Gra and Jeanette,
    Great to hear from you. Train trip was excellent and the hills of Mussoorie are misty and cool. A beautiful place to get away from the heat and noise of Delhi.
