KIRA tells a story to the boys of Bahay Parola



















Children have an innate love of stories. Stories create magic and a sense of wonder. It is with these stories that we learn about life, ourselves and others. Storytelling is one way for children from all walks of life to develop an understanding, respect and appreciation for other cultures.  It can promote a positive attitude to people from different lands, races and religions.
