Artistic Expression Abound at King’s-Edgehill School

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 6, 2017 7:54:00 AM

As one of our four essential pillars, King’s-Edgehill Students are given countless opportunities to express their artistic interests through the arts. Whether it is for fun, such as the KES karaoke night that lets students let loose and share their vocal talents (and gives our international students a creative way to practice their English skills), or if it is through a more structured arts programme, KES students are always encouraged to let their artistic talents shine!

Two thumbs up and an Encore Performance for 'School of Rock'!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 31, 2017 7:31:00 AM

Two thumbs up, way up, for School of Rock! This year’s Junior School musical production, School of Rock, was amazing! King's-Edgehill School was the first school to secure the rights for this new Broadway hit musical, and it was the perfect choice for our talented Junior School musicians and performers.

The four-show run was cut short by an unfortunate car accident involving our pianist and pit band director, Mr. Steve Roe. We were all relieved to hear that he was not seriously hurt and is recovering with a broken hand. The good news is that the show will go on with two additional performances slated for April 28th and 29th.

KES Showcases Musicals

At King’s-Edgehill School, our arts programming not only fulfills one of the essential four pillars of every student’s education at KES, but it offers students the unique opportunity to study and excel at the arts programmess that interest them the most including the dramatic arts, visual arts, and music. Arts are part of KES’ regular academic curriculum and are available as IB courses as well. While many schools are cutting back or even eliminating their art programs, KES gives all students access to various arts programming and believes in the benefits of this integral part of a student’s education. 

Embracing the arts means KES is also proud to showcase their student’s talent with various events throughout the academic year including big musical theatre performances that weave together music, drama and the visual arts. These performances are typically advertised and attended by the entire KES community.
