If you were anywhere near Pakenham on Wednesday, you would have thought there was an earthquake! The ground was shaking, but the cause was the beautiful sound of African Drums, shakers, and a lot of stomping!

Pakenham Public students were thrilled to be part of an all-day workshop with drummer Derek DeBeer! Derek delighted the school with an hour long drumming performance followed by workshops for each class, from kindergarten to grade 6. As you can tell by their expressions, the children had a blast!

A BIG thank you goes to the Young Awards Foundation for sponsoring this event!
