    It’s Not Just About the Music

    As our Global Orchestra students reflect on their incredible experience at the Juilliard School in New York, the trip has seen a blossoming friendship develop between two students from BISS Puxi and BISS Pudong. Leon Palmgren from BISS Puxi and Joung Jin Kim from BISS Pudong had never met before the trip but as two of the youngest participants in the Nord Anglia Education Global Orchestra programme, they’ve now become firm friends. The 16 hour flight from Hong Kong to New York meant the two students had plenty of time to get to know

    Singing in the Rain

    New York has been experiencing the same wet weather as Shanghai recently with our Global Orchestra students having to perform their Up On The Roof concert in a school gym. This didn't ‘dampen’ spirits with the atmosphere warm, friendly and all of the students encouraging each other to perform their solos. The group has also been fortunate to view some of the sights of New York by spending 14 hours visiting Grand Central Station, Times Square, Central Park to name but a few. But it was time to get back to ‘work’ again with

    Holly Walmesley, a Year 12 student at the British International School Shanghai, on the trip to Cambodia

    Year 12 Student Reflects On Her Time In Cambodia

    Activities Week 2015 was a tremendous success with students from Years 7, 8, 9 and 12 undertaking activities within China and abroad. Year 12 visited Cambodia and had a fantastic time helping to build homes and dams, restoring schools and teaching students, in addition to learning more about the history and culture of the country. Holly Walmesley from 12P has shared her experience of the trip and what it meant for her. Cambodia was a great experience and definitely something I would want to do again in the future. I learnt many things throughout the journey, including how important it is to give back.

    Developing Our Music Curriculum With The Juilliard School

    Since the announcement of The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme in February, we have been working hard on this exciting collaboration that will enhance the learning of every Nord Anglia student. After the resounding success of our launch event in April, we’re eagerly awaiting the start of the new school year in September where the programme will continue to grow from strength to strength within our school. The vision for the collaboration is to inspire and equip Nord Anglia students with the skills, curiosity and cultural literacy to engage with performing arts throughout their lives.
