“We decided to integrate the play in the curriculum of Theatre, Vocal and Visual Art classes. In the theatre, students learned about acting and choreography and members of the choir practiced all the songs in the training and prepared the set design,” said Tria, the theatre teacher.
The cast fell satisfied with their performance which had stunned the audience. Sheryl Gething, a grade 10 student who play Mushu on the first day and Mulan on the second said, “ Mulan was the first play I‘ve ever truly been in. playing two main characters and being through ail that drama was one of the best experiences in my life.

On the school’s gate a plaque has been installed bearing the Inscription “Barack Hussein Obama II, the 44th President of United States of America attended this school from 1976-1971”. At the bottom we learn that, :Plaque donated by friends of Obama, Ron Mullers, Dalton-Tanonaka, January 20th,2009 Jakarta, Indonesia”.
The school was built in 1934 as a CAS (Carpenter Alting Stichting Nassau School). It has subsequently become one of Jakarta elite houses of learning. There is no official Obama tour program, but if you are keen to visit, you will find the school to be accommodating and a look around can easily be arranged. (Jl.

After a great deal of wandering, the young man arrived in a village which was terrorized by a pack of ferocious dogs. Although everybody had advised him not to wander there, the young man insisted on going into the wood where dogs lived, and, to much amazement, he returned without even a scratch. He said that the dogs has spoken to him, explaining they were ferocious because they were compelled by a spell to keep guard all the time over a rich treasure chest buried in the woods.
The young man solved all the problems by digging up the chest for himself, so the dogs were free to wander off and troubled the villagers no further.
Some hurricanes start in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico. These hurricanes can strike the East Coast or Gulf Coast of the United States. Hurricanes generally do not hit the West Coast, and rarely make it as far north as Canada. In the western Pacific Ocean, hurricanes are called typhoons. Hurricanes near Australia and India are called tropical cyclones. The winds of a hurricane blow in a huge circle. There is a calm place called the eye in the center of the circle. All around the eye are thick, tall clouds. Heavy rain pours down from these clouds. Hurricanes move across the water. They grow stronger if they stay over warm water. Some hurricanes head for land. Hurricanes can do a lot of damage if they come up on land. But hurricanes grow weaker the farther inland they go. They also grow weaker very cold water.

I spend my money when I go out on eating, shopping, watching movies, playing billiard or sometimes just hanging around in a café.
