Polyglot aimed to develop in children an understanding of various ethnic groups and an appreciation of our multicultural environment
Polyglot’s first show ‘The Good Friend” was the story of a little Star that received a gift from each of seven cultures to make him complete. Each culture presented a folk story both in it’s own language and in English. The stories were a combination of traditional and modern aspects of the cultures : Turkish, Spanish, Greek, Italian, Arabic and Serbo-Croation and Australian.
After the show in Richmond a fight broke out in the playground between a Greek and an Italian student.
They were fighting about who had the best story.
