Zambian Performance at Timber Point

After studying the African nation of Zambia in their art and music classrooms, third-grade students at Timber Point Elementary School performed an African recorder song and traditional dance, “Che Che Koolay,” at the school’s auditorium on May 4.

During the performance, attended by parents and younger students, the third-graders wore traditional Zambian masks made out of various materials. They had constructed the masks during art class, where they also created artwork for the set design and bulletin board. Each student also recited interesting facts about Zambia such as its government and geography.
