The main objective of the “School Culture Day Scheme” (the Scheme) is to encourage students to visit our performing arts venues, museums and libraries during school hours in the school year to take part in cultural programmes specifically designed for them. It is hoped that through the Scheme, students would be encouraged to cultivate and creative mind and regard arts, history and science as part of their learning process and an integral part of everyday life. Apart from stimulating the creative thinking of students, it is hoped that the elements of arts, history and science in these programmes may be integrated into school context and daily life. Ideally, it is expected that each student under the Scheme would have participated at least once in these cultural activities within the school year.
“Let’s Enjoy Cantonese Opera in Bamboo Theatre” is organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department with support from the Tin Sum Village Office. Under this programme, Cantonese opera excerpts for students, including Lo Faa Dong and Rescuing the Goddess of Mount Hua, are performed at distinctive bamboo theatre, and parent-child interactive activities are organised for the audience. The aim of this programme is to provide the public, in particular students, with opportunities to set foot on bamboo theatres to learn more about this unique kind of temporary structure and to appreciate Cantonese operas, thereby enabling transmission of traditional Chinese culture and arts from generation to generation.
