Year 1 children performed the ‘Monkey King’ for Presentation Day. This is a chinese fable about a naughty monkey king who causes lots of trouble in the kingdom. He upsets the emperor and empress of heaven, their heavenly horses, the fairies and steals the preaches meant for the special peach banquet. Eventually Buddha must intervene to teach the Monkey King a lesson and he is imprisoned in the mountain for 500 years. We practised for many weeks to get it just right and we did a great job on the day!
We received our graduation certificates and finished with the song ‘Reach for the Stars”. We are ready for Year 2 in 2015!
