Shakespeare in the News

Yukon Montessori School joined forces with students from Golden Horn Elementary School on April 4th, 2013 to celebrate the first Annual Midnight Sun Elementary Shakespeare Festival at the Old Fire Hall.  Leading up to the event the Whitehorse Star covered the days’ planned festivities.  They discussed some of the inspiration behind the event with Dominic Bradford, both Head Teacher at Yukon Montessori School, and the man behind the event’s inception. The story goes on to discuss some of the student’s preparation beforehand, as well as some details about the public event, Shakespeare – Unplugged, that followed the festival.  The full story can be found here, on the Whitehorse Star website with a subscription. On the event date, the Star was also able to capture some of the students shining moments.  Take a look at the Shakespearean celebration!
