Great Job Gr. 8 & 9 Artists!

Gr. 8 students synthesized their Visual Arts skills with Drama skills within their chilling Gothic tales using props they made for their performances of devised work. Scenes from Abi Morgan's play 'Fugee', focusing on the real-life issues faced by teenage asylum seekers, formed the basis of the Gr. 9 performance. Gr. 9 music students participated in small ensemble performances while the Gr. 8 music students showcased the music videos they created. The MYP Arts program focuses on the process of applying skills, not just producing a final polished performance, and we hope this forms the basis for more discussions at home. Videos of Arts Night performances from both Nov. 28 (Gr. 6-7) and Dec. 3 are viewable at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6K-MIkqlZQqqyGI_X9YbiQ5TDhO-x4Gc
