A Primary School in Brunswick

Brunswick, Victoria, 1978

A little Italian girl at the school had lost both her parents in a car accident in Italy.

She was sent to Melbourne to live with her grandmother. She attended a Brunswick Primary school but had not spoken for six weeks.

Polyglot arrived and played part of the “Good Friend “ in seven languages including Italian.

When the girl heard the puppets speak in Italian, she spoke for the very first time. Teachers in the audience sat there in tears.
