One of my most vivid memories of the African Beat experience was how each boy in year 8 sat with his own djembe under his seat for 35 minutes without touching it as they were so captivated by the presenter out front. Now that’s a huge behaviour management miracle for Year 8 boys but they were so taken with the energetic performance and personality of the musician they didn’t care about the drum under their seat. However, when they finally got to play the djembes, they let loose and had a ball. What a fun learning experience your team provided for them.
