About The Singing Stick
In ancient times the holder of the stick had the right to speak or tell their story. The stick also symbolises the maker of music and the bringing together of the many players – the baton.
“Children are born with wings, teachers help them fly.” Here are Creative Arts materials that teachers can use to give a child that ‘lift-off.
With the passion for eating great wholefoods and getting the message to children about where their food comes from The Singing Stick have partnered with Harvest Hub and the Crunch & Sip program. The Singing Stick brings music, drama and dance into our daily lives making us all happier and more peaceful.
Every person is creative, and given the opportunity can develop these skills. Our aim is to have children connect with each other, build confidence and offer opportunities through Creative Arts ideas to actively explore the meaning of their world and know more about healthy eating choices.
The creators at The Singing Stick have different strengths to offer:
Jayne Travers Drapes revels in all things dramatic and in creating ideas. She is an experienced teacher, stage technician and director, creative writer and now part of the Harvest Hub team.
Rhonda Macken gets lost in the world of music. She is a teacher and creator of music and creative writer and for many years has been the organiser of the ABC ‘Sing’ book.
