The Pattimura tree dominates the courtyard at Pattimura Elementary. Here kids prepare to perform the musical Yanamomo under the spreading branches of the Pattimura tree. It made the perfect backdrop for this particular play. The show focused on the Yanamomo tribe of the South American rain forest. I am not sure how the staff pulled it off, but somehow they managed to get more than 300 kids from prep reception (age 3) to 5th grade to perform an (almost) 2 hour musical. Very impressive.
