Peter Pan

Last Thursday the school year at DEPDC concluded with the graduation ceremony in which founder and director Sompop Jantraka awarded each student with a graduate certificate. Students presented the large audience with several stage shows, among them ‘Peter Pan’, the first-ever play in English language at DEPDC.

Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Tinkerbell, and all the other actors and narrators represented a colourful mix of second, fifth, and sixth grade students of the Half Day School (HDS). The play was adapted and directed by Nicola, one of our international volunteers from Canada, while Vincent (from the Netherlands) was in charge of stage props, with Sarah (from the U.S.) acting as stage crew – and crocodile. Lots of laughter and a big applause from the audience rewarded everyone for their efforts.

The play was the culmination of the first year of English being integrated into the academic curriculum of the Half Day School. Seeing the actors apply their newly acquired English skills excited students and teachers alike. ‘Peter Pan’ inspired all students to take their English to the next (or the first) level come the next year.
