Greek mythology stories were passed down by the ancient Greeks to explain the origins of their world, their society and their culture. Greek mythology also provided a narrative of the lives of people, Greek gods and Greek heroes and was an important part of their religious beliefs.

After creating profiles of the gods of Mount Olympus, Years 7HA, 7HC and 7HH researched Greek mythology stories and created comic strips demonstrating their understanding of these ancient myths.  Stories about the origins of Medusa’s snake hair, Cyclops, Pandora’s Box, the story of Persephone, King Midas and his golden touch and Cronus eating his children, were recreated in comic form. Using their creativity and “Storyboard that” (www.storyboardthat.com), an online program, students were able to create their own characters, themes and backgrounds. Below, are some impressive comics made by the following students: Ayman Chaabouh (The Death of Cronus), Sulaim Zameel (The curse of Medusa), Justin Kunjumon (King Midas), Zane Hammad (The curse of Medusa), Shaasitharaan Maheswaran (Athena’s curse).
