For the next few days, you can listen to a couple of stories every single day.

And That’s because on our podcast we will have some special storytellers!! We have middle and high school students who through the summer have been learning about how to craft their own stories and then produce them on a podcast.

Free activity sheet available at Let’s give a warm welcome to Virinchi




The ship was in the abled hands of captain Edward and his crew, it was a cargo ship travelling from Australia to Indonesia to transport metal andwheat. It was a clear day with waves so gentle that the ship was sailing smoothly.

As night approached, the captain asked the crew to check if everything was okay, which they did. All was good.



Unfortunately, captain Edward forgot to steer the ship In the middle of the night they headed straight to Antarctica and most importantly they also headed towards a tsunami! Edward just woke up and saw an icy land he thought they were heading to Indonesia, but he knew Indonesia doesn't have ice suddenly he remembered that he forgot to steer the ship. His legs went jelly and his forehead furrowed at the thought of what could happen. H ran to the operating area and tried to steer the ship but it was too late and worse the tsunami struck and the crew felt shivers down their spine and they got frightened.

The ship looked like it was surfing on the tsunami going up and down. !

Suddenly all went blank and th next thing they knew that they landed on an island which had no food, no water, and no resources except wood! Edward made an SOS sign on the snow and the crew luckily found an axe to cut trees and make a raft, so that they could make a raft and sail out.

By now they all were extremely hungry and had little energy. they needed food. Edward said “our lives are at stake! If we do not react fast, we would all die!” All the crew members listened to the captain and quickly built a raft and one of the crew members was really good at ice fishing and he caught a few fish.

In that time Edward was trying to make a fire so he can cook the meat after all nobody likes raw meat. When Edward finally lit fire . they all cooked some fish and ate . without losing on time they set sail on the raft and after two days they reached land but not Australia , instead they landed in Madagascar. There they contacted their loved ones who helped them reach home safely.
