As a child, I was never fortunate enough to have the opportunity to play a musical instrument and I vividly recall my teachers saying I did not have a musical ear! As an adult, I tried to remedy this by learning to play the guitar.   Sadly, with the other commitments in my life, I found I did not dedicate the time needed to master this. This is why I am always so delighted to share in the musical talents of the children in our Primary School and at times I can be quite envious of the children who play not just one musical instrument but sometimes two or more! Much research has documented the effects music has on our positive wellbeing.  In addition, music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together.

It was a delight to share the musical talents of some of our children in the Primary school this week at the Primary Music Competition. Almost 30 students performed for us on Thursday evening in the Secondary Auditorium.  These students were selected from a large group of children who auditioned and have spent considerable time perfecting their performances. They were a joy to listen to and I felt an overwhelming sense of pride being in the audience. Many thanks to Ms Kaye Meakin (Primary Art and Dance teacher), Miss Nguyet Minh (Secondary Music competition winner 2017), Mr. Đinh Triệu Khôi (professional pianist) and Ms. Lê Thị Quỳnh (professional cellist) who, as judges, had an incredibly difficult decision to make on who would be awarded ‘Intermediate Musician’ and ‘Advanced Musician’ for 2018.

Our congratulations go to Trần Đỗ Vũ Bằng the winner of the Advanced Musician Award  for his splendid performance of Minuet on the Piano and to the runner up Quách Hoàng Ngân for her performance of Sonatine Op.60, No1.

The winner of the Intermediate category was Pham Khoi Nguyen with his performance of Theme from Symphony No. 40 on the Piano and the runner up Hà Hạnh Chi for her performance of Allegro on the Violin.

From Monday 26th March until the end of term, the corridors of the Primary School will be full of riot of colour with the Year 1-3 Art Exhibition. Please do make some time over the next few weeks to explore the exhibition and delight in even more of your child’s creative talents.

Have a restful weekend.
