We believe that character education can be achieved through experience. As teachers, we are continuously trying our best to create experiences for our students. Therefore, our school participated in the ‘Sing Out’ character education musical project sponsored by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.
Despite the fact that the original plan of physical training was disrupted by the pandemic, thirteen S4 and S5 students from our school were selected to take part in online courses and short film performances. The learning outcomes are presented in the form of a short musical film.
The project aims to develop our students’ ‘four Ds’, namely ‘Dedication’, ‘Discipline’, Self-Discovery’ and ‘Delight’. Participating students have been fully involved in the musical theatre training and have been meticulous in their practice and performance. Besides, students’ discipline has been cultivated through team activities. While experiencing failures and frustrations during the training, students are able to discover and understand themselves more. Without any doubt, having a chance to meet like-minded friends and accomplish the tasks together successfully brings them a lot of joy. Upon completion of the project, all students agreed that the musical theatre training was definitely an unforgettable experience.
