Last week, I witnessed two outstanding performing arts productions at the school. The Great Gatsby was performed by a group of talented secondary students at the Theatre. It was a wonderful performance of what was a challenging script. Congratulations to the students and staff involved and a particular thank you to the co-directors Ms Alice Robertson and Ms Maria Welby.
We also witnessed a wonderful primary production “ Mulan” which was a stunning event. The acting, singing, dancing, in fact everything, was of such a high standard. The students were magnificent and I am grateful to all the Primary staff involved in making it such a success.
This week, our Primary students travelled to Phuket to participate in the FOBISIA Games. It was a wonderful event where our students socialised and competed against other schools from SE Asia. They really showed a great deal of integrity and care for the other students which just shows the quality of our children. They also met with a great deal of success in all the events with a huge number of individual and team medals. Thank you to our wonderful students and the dedicated teachers and coaches who accompanied them.
The SPLAT initiative in the EY&IC has been a great success where parents come in to learn alongside their children. I was fortunate to experience one SPLAT in F3 and had a wonderful time. In Secondary, this week’s ‘Week without Walls’ has been great success with so many outstanding activities taking place. Our Year 9 students are also enjoying their Borneo experience and contributing greatly to the community there.
Phew… what a wonderful school!
