Head of School for the day, Ryan, opened the assembly and Dr. Lowry told the students a fable about the god Mercury, the woodsman, and the axe.
The Little School students then sang the "Kookaburra Song" in rounds while Ms. Spaeth directed and played the piano. They were asked to stand every time the sang the word Kookaburra; after three rounds, it was quite a workout.
Next up, the teachers and students sang "Hello, My Name Is Joe," he's the one that "works in a button factory." Above, Ms. Hards and company are "pushing the buttons" with their left and/or right hands. Below, the crowd was about to push the buttons with their elbows, heads and tongues (which was hilarious to see and hear).
