Year 8 students get active!
In learning about the Birth of Rome, Year 8 students have been role-playing the two main stories of Romulus and Remus (the more widely used, popular and better known of the two) and the lesser known story of Aeneas. Students had lots of fun re-enacting the battle scenes and took great pleasure in slaying their classmates!
In the Aeneas story there was also a love story where the Queen of Carthage falls in love with Aeneas only to be later abandoned as Aeneas continues his quest and spiritual calling for power. The love scene cause a little embarrassment among some students, although no kissing or cuddling was allowed, but nevertheless good fun had by all.
