What's the Story?
“What's the story?” Do you remember this saying? It was a type of colloquial greeting at one time in NZ. A casual little phrase, but actually when you unpack it, quite profound! What IS the story? What are the stories we create that in turn shape our lives? Marni Gillard writes "We need to look hard at the stories we create, and wrestle with them. Re-tell and re-tell them, work with them like clay. It is in the re-telling and returning that they give us their wisdom." In this lecture I will share how we have developed a culture of story telling with children and parents at Chelsea Kindergarten and how this has impacted all of our lives.
