Organised chaos in the library today, as a major change of layout takes shape. Mrs Wood is halfway though the reorganisation which will create much better access to the collections, and more study spaces!
Some 40 plus students and teachers attended the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra concert this week on the 2nd of July at Dewan Sri Pinang, Georgetown. The opportunity to hear a professional orchestra of this level is very rare in Penang. The students certainly appreciated the level of finesse exhibited by the orchestra. Much was gained from just listening to the precision of their playing.
Today’s Speech Day 2019 marks one of the major events we have for the academic year. We were honoured to have Mr. Jeffrey Chew – Chairman of the Penang Port Commission to be our Key Speaker for this year. Words of wisdom such as keeping focused, being sensitive to what is ahead, staying passionate in what you do best are some great messages we all can take home no matter where we are. In addition, we thoroughly enjoyed the performances showcasing some of our very talented students. Last but not least, we are extremely proud of what the students have achieved over this year, including the parents as you can see from the smiles on their faces.
The first of several recording sessions took place at Hits Recording Studio over the weekend by the Music department. The very first POWIIS music album will be featuring the best performances of the year. The recording session gives our students a taste of professional musicians’ experience. It also adds another dimension to their learning experience.
