Recently, the Morris Jeff Community School International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) Arts Department put on it’s first musical! Three fourth grade classes performed folk tales from around the world: Germany, China and Africa. Using Orff instruments and singing and acting, the students were very excited to present these fables to their family and classmates at two performances. All of the sets, costumes and props were designed and produced by the Morris Jeff Talented in Visual Arts students in the PYP.
