Our students are storytellers………………and travellers

Screen shot 2014-09-14 at 11.15.59 PMOur students do some wonderful storytelling. Witness second year PJ student Annie Sakkab’s video on a pair of brothers in Jordan, who live a simple life, raising and training pigeons and looking after a array of stray cats and dogs along the way. Here is Annie’s summary…………….el Kashasheen – Hearts of Feather
Samer and Bilal Maroun, originally from Jaffa, Palestine, have been training pigeons for the past 30 years in downtown Amman, Jordan. Their story is simple yet heart warming. In a volatile and politically unstable region such as the Middle East where differences stem out of identity, race, religion and social status, the twin brothers were able to rise above these differences through the simple life they chose, the goodness of their heart and their acceptance of everyone regardless of their religion or their origin.”
