200 Kershaw Elementary and Heath Springs students, from classes up to second grade, were treated to a performance by the AJHS Focus programs on Wednesday the 28th of February. The combined efforts of the Music, Art, Drama and Dance departments brought “Anansi the Spider” to life on the AJHS stage.
The show, which lasted about an hour brings the story of Anansi and his stories to the stage. Anansi is a cultural icon in many African countries as the keeper of stories. His tale has been told by many different authors and communities. It is a reminder of the importance of storytelling and its’ impact in the lives of people.
