华族古典文化学院介绍

我们是本地富有127年历史、四代相传老店「西天园佛铺」的教育分支,由国家文物局支持设立。

我们专注于利用神话故事与古典文化,培养儿童的人生价值观。要让现代的儿童对这方面产生兴趣并不容易。

 我们的课程使用戏剧、原创游戏、音乐、道具等,引发思考与讨论,并把老祖宗口口相传的故事,精彩演绎与叙述,让儿童亲自体验藏于这些故事中的人生道理和处世原则。

Ancient Chinese culture contains a wealth of wisdom.

But children nowadays struggle to access it due to lower language abilities, shorter attention spans, and wider choices of entertainment (think Marvel and Disney!).​

At our Academy, we use experiential drama-based workshops to help your child fall in love with with the legends, literature and philosophies from one of the world's oldest civilisations.

Instead of simply using these as tools for vocabulary-building as is often done nowadays, we will delve into the universal life values embodied by these legends, such as integrity, perseverance, courage, filial piety, compassion, and forgiveness.

We will use original games, unique props, immersive story-telling, music and movement, as well as your child's personal reflections to bring these stories to life.

For eg., we will use Hershey's chocolates to bring children into the world of the 14th-century novel, Romance Of The Three Kingdoms. We will use forum theatre to deconstruct the "24 Exemplars of Filial Piety", a Yuan Dynasty text once widely used to impart Confucian values. We will reimagine the Journey To The West as a massive board game.

Our goal is not for your child to understand the plots of these legends from A to Z (which is actually not difficult), but rather to gain a deeper appreciation of the legends' metaphors, moral questions and, ultimately, relevance to their lives and future.

By doing so, we hope to develop a unique form of cultural capital in your child, preparing him or her for the future.
