Shadow play in KG

To celebrate Chinese New Year, we had special visitors from “Shanghai Wu's Company”, who presented a fascinating shadow puppet show to KG. 

Shadow puppet shows used to be seen all around the country before television became popular. The puppets are made with leather and colored with plants. 

Kids were entained with four famous stories as 'The Carp Who Jumped over the Dragon Gate' 'The Hare and the Turtle' 'The crow and the Fox' and 'Goats On a bridge'. Some of the kids also joined the show as puppeteers.

It was the first time to experience the Shadow Puppet Shows for many of our pupils and even teachers, that we all showed great passion while watching.
