Tuesday 14 October

Drama and action came to Joeys this week. The Joeys romped through a mob meeting filled with puppetry, craft and Ging Gang Goolie drama.

First up, Wolf showed the mob some puppetry techniques and then they all had a go at being the puppeteer. Amazing what stories Joey imaginations can produce! Next they learnt about Baden-Powell and the story behind the traditional Scout song – ‘Ging Gang Goolie’. Each Joey learnt the song, created their own Great Grey Ghost Elephant mask and warrior headband. They all took part in acting out the story of the Ginga Ganga (village leader) and Heyla Shey (medicine man) triumphing over the Great Grey Ghost Elephant (Wolf). For those parents who haven’t already heard the song a million times, here are the lyrics:


Ging Gang Goolie.

Ging gang goolie goolie goolie goolie Watcha,

Ging gang goo,

Ging gan goo,

 

Ging gang goolie goolie goolie goolie Watcha,

Ging gang goo,

Ging gan goo,

 

Heyla, heyla sheyla

Heyla sheyla heyla, ho

 

Heyla, heyla sheyla

Heyla sheyla heyla, ho

 

Shalli walli, shalli walli, shalli walli, shalli walli

Oompah oompah …………..


 

To top off a fun filled night, each Joey made warrior shield iced biscuits to take home for supper.
