There have been many challenges we have all faced due to COVID19 but it has also taught us to think outside the box and continue to deliver our school experiences in innovative ways. A positive outcome has been that Creativity Night was enjoyed by more of our Northbridge community in Phnom Penh than in previous years, as well as by viewers around the globe. 

This year the evening opened with an Isolation Art-themed virtual gallery, where our students and staff presented a range of artworks they created at home around the theme of ‘isolation’. It was an incredible experience to ‘walk’ around a gallery and take in the works created by our community. If you have not already toured, we encourage you to do so through the link above.

In the second part of the evening, Creativity Night performances were live screened to our community through Facebook, sharing exceptional performances from our students and staff in music and dance, with dual MCs Jillian and Gemma leading the show. You can watch and share it again by clicking here.

Performances included a solo modern dance by Sally called ‘Lazarus’, acoustic guitar from Alderic and Sotheanith, a duet by sisters Ahona and Adrijaa, and a wonderful piano piece by Kelsie. Of course, all the students (and staff - well done Ms Kate!) were amazing. Congratulations all!
