Yanchep and Butler students in pirate adventure

Yanchep and Butler students will get to see the National Theatre for Children actors Chris Asimos and Kristen Cunningham perform.

YANCHEP and Butler students will be learning about conservation and natural resources through two professional theatre productions heading to schools during the next two weeks.

Yanchep District High School students will watch The Treasure Trove of Conservation Cove on Monday, August 8 while students at John Butler Primary College in North Butler will view the production on Monday, August 15.

The interactive pirate adventure is a 30-minute play designed to teach primary school students about natural resources, how they are used, how they are wasted and what students can do to conserve them.

The 40-minute comedy sketch The Resource Raiders will follow a similar theme and will be performed for Year 7-9 students.

Stockland has partnered with The National Theatre for Children to create the two educational plays that professional actors will perform to more than 10,000 students at schools in communities across Australia.

Stockland general manager WA Col Dutton said the plays used comedy and characters such as Captain Doorknob, Cece Starfish and Merv Maid to teach students what natural resources were, how they were sometimes wasted and what each student could do to use them more wisely.
