School Program Story by Tyrion Perkins
The first thing you notice about Tanya is her amazing dresses. She also loves stories and came all the way from Waiheke Island, Aotearoa, New Zealand to share them with prep and year 1 students in Ipswich.
She began with a song, getting the kids to copy her. She told her own story of how she first grew up in a caravan on the side of a mountain. At school she loved to dress up and do plays. Now she goes all over the world telling stories. She now lives with fruit trees which she fertilises with what she collects from her “princess poo tower” (see photo).
She told a story from Mongolia and Siberia and had the children laughing at her funny voices and sound effects. The scary character made them jump in fright then scream in laughter. She then read from her book, “My Dad is a dragon Catcher.”
