Over the last two months,
Nord Anglia Education
(NAE) has been raising awareness of their collaboration with Juilliard and developing Nord Anglia’s reputation as a thought leader within education. Several articles in top tier transnational and local publications have been published and two of the articles are as follows:Forbes
China Buying In More Arts In Education -- Because It Can
Reject League Tables in Favour of Inspiration
The Huffington Post article above is by Andrew Fitzmaurice who is the CEO of NAE.
“Music can play a transformational role in children’s education. The Julliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme has been designed to give students a deep engagement with performing arts - promoting cultural literacy, creativity, critical thinking and collaboration.”
Last week in the Secondary Assembly, Ms Rae gave a very interesting presentation about how learning a musical instrument can help students succeed in other subjects. Therefore, in the articles above it is so pleasing to learn about NAE’s commitment to all areas of the curriculum, including Performing Arts. The unique NAE music curriculum has been designed in collaboration with the world renowned Juilliard School in New York and will eventually give BIS Hanoi students unique opportunities to learn about music through iconic works and regular connections with outstanding practicing musicians. As stated on the NAE website:
In January 2016, we will receive our first visit from a Julliard School representative to discuss with us how BIS Hanoi can integrate with the Julliard-NAE programme.
I do hope that you all have a wonderful weekend.
Mr Anthony Rowlands, Principal
