Blog

In the era of rapid progress of science, “Blog” combined the functions of both “webpage” and “bbs” and is still popular among net users. Users can easily and fast share their knowledge and technology and receive many responses.

On the day we visited Master Tsung-lin Wu in Wulai, the weather on the mountain was humid and cold. But it did not reduce our passion. The week before spring festival, we participated in the winter camp to learn how to beat a drum. Though we had callus and injuries on hands and fatigue body, we encouraged and supported each other in the repeated practice and stick to the last minute. In order to show you our experience in the truest manner, we carefully recorded the sweets and bitters during the study. We described each minute and second of our stories to you in Blog.

We hoped that, through Blog, we could allow more people know “U-Theater”. We are proud that it has presented the vitality and energy of Taiwan on international arena! We described how we turned from strangers to members uniting to go through thick and thin and how we achieved the results. I hope that, years later, when we recall this Blog, we will feel that it’s precious experience and memory.

Appreciation of Performances

We started to search the performances related to U-Theatre. Through our own performance, we hoped that we could experience the spirit of " combination of Tao(self-imporvement) and Art (the learning and maturity of art) " of U-Theatre. Luckily, we watched the performances related to drum during the drum festival. We watched the performances of Zem Drummer and Jingwen Middle School students, appreciated the performances by people of different ages and skills, and learned the uniqueness of " combination of Tao and Art " of U-Theatre!

Rehearsal and Charity Performance
The children at Yi Kuang Orphanage were a vulnerable group. There was a total of 31 children, wherein, 14 could use stationery, while the others with serious diseases could not even take food by themselves. We arranged several rehearsals and practices of Fuhsing String Orchestra, Wind Band, and Percussion Ensemble. We hoped that the performance of our team "Thunder King of Drums" could brought about a happy and memorable holiday for the children, big and small, at Yi Kuang Orphanage. First, we demonstrated the posture to beat a drum and promoted the spirit of drum beating of U-Theatre. Then, we shared special stories to encourage the children to be confident. We selected popular songs like "Tinker Bell" and Little Happiness" so that the children could sing along with us happily and feel the love from our team "Thunder King of Drums".

Sharing the content of the literature book

(Comprehensive Instruction on Writing for Middle School Student)

As the old saying goes, "Good tools are essential", during this Cyberfair project, in order to better understand the skills to produce webpages, our teacher recommend "Comprehensive Instruction on Writing for Middle School Student" to us. Though we are middle school students, I believe that after reading the book carefully and apply the skills in it, we all can write good paper in the future.
