Yearly Archives: 2018
Joshua Lau (Year 9) and Maegan Ang (Year 10) took part in the AIMS Young Musician Award of the Year 2018 at Nexus International School in Putrajaya last weekend.
Both students were in Category B (aged 11 to 14). Out of 27 participants from international schools in Malaysia, Maegan was awarded the ‘Special Mentioned’ prize and Joshua Lau was chosen to be one of the four finalists that competed in the Final round the next day.
The standard was extremely high and the judges graded the performance on clarity, confidence in their playing (that includes stage appearance), quality of musicianship and stylistic understanding. Both executed their performances very well and the judges spoke very highly of their musicianship skills. Well done!
POWIIS welcomed 30 teaching staff from Santa Cruz Convent School Bangkok, Thailand today as part of their study of technology integration in education. They were given a school tour by three of our Sixth Formers and Principal Simon Leese was delighted to share some interesting insights about POWIIS with them.
With our Wizard of Oz production quickly approaching (in a week’s time to be exact) houses competed to see who could create the best Woz-ified house areas last week.
It was a close call between Rutland and Somerset, but Rutland was our champion with Somerset second and Durham third. Congratulations to the houses on a job well done! As a reward, the winners’ Woz-ified displays will be used in the foyer of the auditorium for everyone to take pictures with!
Congratulations to the Student Ball Committee (Yan Bin Phua, Henry Lim, Nicole Lee, Jing Zhou Ong, Karen Lu, Onishi Rei, Maxwell Ong and Lillian Balcarek) for organising a great evening of entertainment at the Evergreen Laurel Hotel, dancing and fun for over 200 POWIIS students.
Special thanks to: Christopher Lim, Pavithra Manivannan and Abu Hanif Haniz for photographs of the evening.
