Y3 Assembly – The Happy Prince

Year 3 performed a moving portrayal of ‘The Happy Prince’ by the acclaimed Irish playwright Oscar Wilde.

The main character is a beautiful statue, covered in gold leaf and decorated with jewels. The statue represents a prince, who during his lifetime, was famous for being happy. However, the truth is that the prince appeared to be happy only because he knew nothing of life outside the palace. Only after he died and became a statue did the prince learn of the suffering of the poor people in the city. He enlists the help of a swallow to offer assistance to the many people living in poverty.

Year 3 delighted and moved their audience with a powerful narrative and some beautiful dancing. We also learnt about the importance of love and being kind to each other.
