Exploring Chinese Cultural Arts-Chinese Opera
探索中华传统艺术 - 华族戏曲
EtonHouse Zhong Hua Pre-School

At EtonHouse Zhong Hua Pre-School, inquiry is used as an approach to introduce traditional Chinese culture to the children.

Our children discovered shadows during an outdoor game of dragon dance. The discovery piqued their curiosity and eventually led to a visit to the Singapore Science Centre. The children also watched a shadow puppet play of the Chinese classic "Journey to the West".

Children were also introduced to Chinese opera and will be actively involved in a small drama production to be staged later in the year.

Children's thoughts and interests are respected and it is the centre’s hope that children can grow to appreciate Chinese culture through this process.
