Celebrating Diversity Through Folktales

Digital Format Available


- OUTLINE -

NEW! DIGITAL FORMAT AVAILABLE TO SCHOOLS
___________________________________________

Many folktales carry good morals that can be imparted to our young. Through songs and audience participation, the children will gain a multi-sensorial experience of the stories told and thus appreciate the sound of the language.
Performance can be catered to the needs of the school where the stories address specific topics such as character values, national education, festivals, reading week.
