More than 150 students of Sri Kuala Lumpur Primary School displayed their singing, dancing and acting talents in a dance drama, titled Marek’s Tale.

The students, aged 10 to 12, practised under head of dance Angeline Miranda and her two assistants, Selvam Jasinta and Sumathi, for several months to make this dance drama or taridra a success.

The school’s chief executive officer, Hanif Merican said he was happy that it had decided to do something different from the usual annual school production.

Marek’s Tale is not quite a ballet and not quite a musical, but something truly and uniquely South East-Asian, ” he said.

“I must thank Angeline and the dedicated members of the organising committee who had gone the extra mile to make this ground-breaking Sri KL taridra a success,” he said.

He said all proceeds from the sale of tickets, food and school calendar sales will be channelled to various charitable organisations and individuals with special needs.

The benefactors include Paws Animal Welfare Society, an orthotic service centre, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Agathians, Rumah Pusat Jagaan Amal Asyura, Yayasan Seribu Harapan Malaysia, Madam K. Valliammal and Madam Titis Uliyati, a mother of a Sri KL student who lost her husband in a tragic accident, as well as Spastic Children’s Association of Selangor and Federal Territory.
