Long, long ago, the Jade Emperor planned a competition to choose the twelve zodiac animals. News spread far and wide about this exciting opportunity as all the animals in the kingdom gathered to participate. But what was the outcome? Which animals overcame the dangers and difficulties of the competition to succeed? Participate in this exciting Chinese Cultural Arts programme and find out.

Through this classic Chinese tale, this programme nurtures children’s love for Chinese culture and enthusiasm for learning. Children will develop their listening and speaking skills by being fully immersed in a variety of cultural traditions including dance, calligraphy and ink painting. By placing language in context and by physicalising vocabulary, children will improve their ability to express themselves in Mandarin with colour and confidence.
