It probably stems back to the fact that I wasn't allowed to go trick or treating as a kid. It was, after all, the "Devil's holiday". But I loved all things about Halloween.

Do Your Students Have Opinions About Theatre?3-3-14

HKELD is all about promoting the performing arts in Hong Kong. A love for the arts is a culturally important aspect of life and students are usually encouraged at school to develop such an interest. Whether they do or not is up to them but we thought it would be interesting to find out what they really think about, (for example) a mandated play they were forced to watch for a school trip.
