History Comes Alive
For the last 2 weeks Paul Hommes, one of the missionaries in the People of Praise, and the older student boys have been working on building a trebuchet also called a catapult. They are studying Roman times in History class. Catapults were devices used for hurling stones or other objects during the Middle Ages. The students demonstrated it for the whole school. They launched water balloons and rocks at a pile of cardboard boxes. Each of the older boys took turns pulling the release cord.
