04-08-2014 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #48


Title
Consultant Agreement with Didgeridoo Down Under

Discussion
In 2007-2008  Pinewood had a wonderful Australian assembly teaching them about Australian animals, geography, culture and music.  Students created their own didgeridoo instruments out of PVC pipes and decorated them.  On the day of the assemblies students brought their home made didgeridoos and played them.  This year, Pinewood would like to provide this experience to their current student body.  The Didgeridoo presentation is a high-energy, Australia-themed show/assembly combining music, culture, science, puppetry, comedy, character building, anti-bullying, reading motivation and audience participation.  Students will learn about the Aboriginal people of Australia, animals of Australia and they will see examples of pointillism paintings on the didgeridoo instruments.  The presentation is scheduled for May 13, 2014
