What happens when you mix peasants with nobility, greed with trust, royal power with indentured servitude, poison with wine, knights with village idiots, mummery with revelry and princesses with goatherds?

March 21, 2012 - PRLog -- Why, you get a medieval banquet murder mystery, of course!  In March the Grade 7 humanities class acted out a medieval European banquet. Dinner included roast chicken and pork, salad, leak and vegetable soup, grainy bread and a desert of apple crumble. All was washed down with a fine wine (minus the fermentation)! Lord Hamlet (A. MacLachlan) and his family hosted many suitors for the hands of his daughters. Much intrigue was revealed when Lord Hamlet was poisoned by his evil brother and a long-lost son and heir to the throne was found. Jousts, juggling, mummery and the execution of a notorious villain rounded out the entertainment.  

Many thanks to Maestro Patrick from Ye Olde Design Technology Shop and Dame Susan from The King’s Artisan’s House for helping the revelers create wonderful decorations to set the stage, and a thousand graces to Lady Malee and her Cooking School servants for such a great feast.

Ye olde-style banquet was established by A. Melanie and A. Mary in 2007 with a primary focus to turn a traditional unit of study into a real-life learning experience.

This annual celebration for Prem International School ( seventh-grade humanities classes marks the culmination of an extensive academic simulation of feudal European society. Students live the history that they've been studying as well as integrating units from English, DT and Art as they dress, eat and participate in activities from the medieval times.
