On November 17th, 2020, our Year 5 & 6 students captivated the audience with their stunning production; The Legend of Mulan.
The Legend of Mulan is full of Chinese splendour, action, singing and dancing! It also delivers an important message about courage, strength and working hard to achieve your dreams. Our students were able to give the whole production a modern twist – with its use of Pop songs instead of the regular soundtrack. The highlight was when students had some of the audience participate and engage with the actors.
According to Ms Angeline Karadia, Key Stage 2 Coordinator & Learning Support Teacher and Director of The Legend of Mulan, the reason she chose Mulan is because it’s a story that sends our children a positive message. The whole production is done in the English language and as an international school, speaking good, clear English is one of the main priorities.
Mulan is a metaphor for each of us. It teaches us to look beyond the superficiality of what we look like plus the importance of following and honouring our differences. It also reminds us that we are all equal and should be treated as such and that we are stronger than what we give ourselves credit for.
