KinderWorld Education Group has supported art activities in Vietnam by acting as the Diamond Sponsor for “A Bullet for My Valentine,” an independent student-run musical show organised by Fragments. The musical theatre performance of Fragments Team proved an eye-opening show of professional standards  This team is co-founded by Le Minh Ha and Nguyen Le Hoai Thuong, two excellent students from Singapore International School, KinderWorld Education Group. The show is scheduled “A bullet for my Valentine” tells a story from the early 1930s, about 17-year-old Hayley Brown and 18-year-old Eli Weston who were locked up in a juvenile detention hall. From this setting, the performance aims to illustrate the actual aftermath of childhood, with a direct focus on the fatal side of the spectrum. It is important that a suitably challenging yet nurturing environment for growth must be fostered.
