KS3 rounded off an amazing year of BISA productions by taking us on a trip to Neverland on Friday 22nd June. Their performance of 'Wendy and Peter' had all the elements of the classic J.M.Barrie book: the Darling children, a hungry crocodile, the larger than life Captain Hook, the rambunctious Lost Boys, the feisty Tinkerbell and TigerLily and, of course, the boy who never grew up, Peter Pan.
The young Secondary students did a wonderful job of creating the fantasy world of Neverland with their minimalistic set. The production was filled with comedy, music, and some fantastic performances channeling some of famous pirates and lost boys!
By far and away the most exciting element of the production was the aerial antics - making our cast members actually fly. With the help of a large contingent of BISA staff backstage, our young performers literally took to the air throughout the performance.
Well done to all of the students and staff involved in this fantastic performance! Enjoy a highlights reel below:
Let the wild rumpus start!
Our Early Years children presented their adaptation of Maurice Sendak's much loved book, 'Where The Wild Things Are' , on Saturday 26th May, and what a wonderful production it was!
For the past half term, the book has been central to their learning in the classroom, reading it daily and getting to know and understand the story of Max, the little boy who runs away and becomes King of the Wild Things only to discover that everything he needs is back at home and where he is loved most of all. Talk to any child in Early Years in BISA and they will be able to tell you the whole story!
On Saturday, dressed in costumes of their own making, they roared their terrible roars as Wild Things to a delighted audience of parents and friends. With the confidence of their performance, it was hard to believe, at times, that these children were all between the age of 2 to 5 years old.
Well done to all of you and thank you to all the parents for being as much a part of our 'Wild Things' term as the children have been!
Our Music Keys programme allows all students in Upper Primary to learn a musical instrument with the help of music mentors from Secondary. They have weekly sessions with their mentors, working together and building their musical skills.
Every year this culminates in a beautiful afternoon of music at our Music Keys Recital.
This took place last Wednesday 23rd May in our amphitheatre in Kisongo.
Our young musicians performed beautifully, showing the skills they had learned and their ever-emerging musical talents. Performing both individually and in groups, they showed no sign of nerves or stage-fright.
Congratulations to you all!
As you will have seen in last week's news, our students from Secondary had a fantastic time in London on our Creative Arts trip. While they were there they kept a video diary of their adventures which has been expertly edited by our Media Prefect, Josephine.
Enjoy the following video of their adventures in England:
It was exciting times for our Secondary students who journeyed to the UK for our Creative Arts trip. Their 10 days in London were filled with adventures including visiting the Natural History Museum, London Zoo, Olympic Park, Kensington Palace, and many visits to the theatre. They visited a school in England, spending the day with the students and experiencing every day life in their school. For many of the young people, it was their first time visiting the UK and they had a wonderful time.
Keep your eyes peeled next week for their video report of their trip!
Thank you to Mrs Rogers, Mr Magambo and Mrs Moshi for taking the students on such an adventure!
