Long, long ago, ancient humans did not know how to mark time in years, so they turned to the celestial immortals for help. The immortals devised a plan: a host of animals were invited to participate in a long and arduous race. Many animals took part but only 12 successfully completed it through great effort. And thus the 12 animal signs of the Chinese zodiac were established.

Our Chinese Cultural Arts programme for kindergarteners adopts this classic Chinese legend to encourage children’s interest in Chinese culture. Participation in music and movement, traditional dance, calligraphy and ink painting, will also help inspire their interest in artistic pursuits, spark an understanding of the importance of Chinese history and culture, and encourage an enjoyment of Mandarin in the process.
