MWASA English Language learners had a great time brainstorming together, trying to come up with synonyms for “harmony”, “inclusive” and “respect”, participated in small group discussions recounting moments when they felt “included” and shared a scrumptious lunch together.

THE MORGAN LIBRARY AND MUSEUM, NEW YORK
The Morgan Library and Museum in New York were extremely generous and gave our English leaners a private virtual tour of their exciting exhibition – She Who Wrote: Enheduanna and the Women of Mesopotamia ca. 3400 – 2000 BC.
Thank you to our amazing teacher, Susan, who reached out to Nicole Leist from the Morgan who was super excited to prepare the tour for us here in Adelaide. Our English language learners were dazzled by the beauty of the treasures and inspired by the stories behind the women. The learners had been reading about Agatha Christie, who in researching for her work came across Enheduanna on an archeological dig in Iraq. We have been enthralled by the lives of all these women in addition to learning to prepare for a zoom workshop, researching, preparing questions and providing reflection. All learners enjoyed this experience and look forward to another one in the future.
