Engage our unique Chinese cultural programme, supported by the National Heritage Board

For students aged 5 to 10 in preschools, MOE primary schools, international schools, student care centres, and enrichment centres.

Large group workshop (for 30 to 150 students / 1.5h)

Deepen your students' sense of gratitude (恩) via an immersive and interactive story-telling of the difficult journey Singapore's early migrants endured to start a new life in Singapore.

We will start at the journey's very beginning - the dangerous boat voyage from China to "Nanyang". We will help students re-appreciate the sea, our dependence on it and its power over us, a tension experienced in sharper relief a century ago.

At a time when sea travel was far from the luxury cruises we know today, we will learn why many of our forefathers placed their hopes for surviving the voyage to "Nanyang" not in lifeboats and life vests, but in an ancient goddess known as Mazu (妈祖).

Known as the Goddess of the Sea, Mazu remains today one of the most recognisable and important cultural icons not only in Singapore, but also among the Chinese diaspora scattered around the world.

In our workshop, we will use the dramatic arts in the form of immersive story-telling, role-play, unique props, and personal reflections to touch the hearts of students.

All our workshops are non-religious, accessible to students of all backgrounds, and can be conducted in Mandarin-only, English-only, or bilingual modes.
