Year 11 Carmen Teo:
“Joining choir has been an irreplaceable part of my experience in BSB. Since I was young, music was an indispensable part of my life especially after I joined choir. Before I joined choir, I was a very shy person even around my closest friends. But after I joined choir, I felt more outgoing and was participating in performances. Miss Clark and the Music Department puts together many opportunities to show what an amazing time the people in choir are having and the hidden talents of the members of choir in music. There are many outstanding singers in choir which I look up to and I have been able to learn many things out of choir from Miss Clark and from the members of the choir.
As I came to Year 10, IGCSE exams and studying made it harder for me to participate in many After School Activities (ASAs) and I’ve seen many people leave choir because of it. I have even thought about it - whether or not it may affect my IGCSEs because in my opinion my grades are not the best in some subjects. But the more time I spent in choir made it harder for me to leave. I knew if I left, I would regret it very much especially because I enjoyed it so much, which is what made me stay in the end.
After deciding to stay in choir, I also joined the music productions “Little Shop of Horrors” and “The School of Rock”. The only regret I have is not joining the production earlier. Joining the school production was a fun and memorable experience. It added a bit of excitement to my journey in school.”
Well done, Lucy and Carmen! Please enjoy the photos of their singing moments at BSB!
