Primary PTG Update - Friday 9th October 2020

WOW what another busy week for the Primary PTG!  On Wednesday this week we hosted our first ever PTG Cultural Festival at the Junior Campus.  There was great anitcipation for this event as registration was full within 2hrs of sharing the link!  Thankfully we were able to add more spaces and were so grateful to welcome even more BIS parents.

PTG Cultural Event

The Cultural Festival showcased a variety of wonderful performances celebrating different cultures from within our BIS community.  All peformers were BIS parents who volunteered their time to showcase their talents and create an energetic and fun filled morning!  The atmosphere was even better than we could have imagined as the variety of acts ignited a mix of emotions as the style and meaning of each performance were so different.

PTG Cultural Event

Lily Guarjardo kicked off the event with an upbeat energetic Latin mixture of Caribbean rhythms. The feel good performance had the audience smiling, dancing in their seats and clapping in time to the beat of the drums! It was an excellent way to kick off the festival!

PTG Cultural Event 2020

Shiho Aoki, from Japan, performed a delicately controlled Hula Hawaian dance, using her hands to represent the lyrics in the music. The audience enjoyed the perfomance whilst dreaming of sun, sea, beaches and cocktails!

PTG Cultural Event

Pamela Duncan and Dr Sue Heatherley, dressed as ‘Fair Ladies’ from the late 18th Century and provided a historical insight into one of the UK’s most infamous Children s Nursey rhymes. It turned out that ‘London Bridge is Falling Down’ is recognised across the globe and most of the audience sang along in their own language, while others were invited up onto stage to join in the accompanying dance!

PTG Cultural Event

Grace Sunyoung Lim, a contemporary choreographer, from Korea, performed a captivating dance representing someone ‘Walking in Solitary’, walking alone in search of an invisible world. The audience watched in total silence captivated by the intensity of the movement.

PTG Cultural Event

Maya Goyal and Barnali Choudhury performed a semi classical dance lined with touches of many styles of dance from across India, Shiva the lord of dance in Indian tradition, and a representation of both masculine and feminine elements. The dance ended with a pose emphasising the union of male and female engeries, from which the whole universe begins. It was elegant and confident performance and definitely another favourite with the audience!

PTG Cultural Event

Finally Ms Pham Kim Duyen and To My Lan, sang a beautiful version of “Saigon Dep Lam”, while playing the piano and encouraging the audience to participate too! It too was certainly a crowd pleaser, with everyone thrilled to learn the chorus of an iconic Vietnamese hit! Some parents enjoyed it so much they stayed back at the end of the event to practice with Ms Duyen!

It was another wonderfully successful event bringing together BIS parents, learning from one another, having fun and celebrating the cultures of the diverse community in which we live.

This event would never have been possible without the commitment from the performers so willing to step into the lime light, and all the parents who attended and demonstrated such great enthusiasm.  A huge thank you to all of you.  We would also like to thank the BIS management and facilities team for their support, and Ms Synelle Snoeck, a parent volunteer who led the organisation of this whole event along with the support from the Primary PTG coordinators.  Lastly one additional thanks to sponsors Morico, Mary Kay & Brims who provided small thankyou gifts to the peformers!
