Trojan horse is no myth at Tate Street Primary School
September 18th, 2009
A GIGANTIC wooden horse was the centrepiece of Tate Street Primary School's latest stage show.
The play, put on by years 5 and 6 students, was The Legend of Troy and was the culmination of weeks of studying Greek mythology.
"The kids have learned enthusiasm, teamwork, persistence and personal growth because of the huge amount of work that has been put into it," acting principal Debra Stavenuiter said of the play.
Students had worked with artistic director Dave Kelman for three hours every Friday for the last 20 weeks to get ready for the play.
The Trojan horse was created by local artists Glen Romanis and Stuart Guthrie.
A $36,000 grant from Arts Victoria helped make the horse and the play possible.
