Inside King's-Edgehill School

Meet IB Artist – Eva Redmond

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 5, 2020 1:25:00 PM

Coming into KES I had never even planned to do IB Art, but my life and my passions have changed drastically during the past two years. I decided to join the IB Art class about a month into Grade 11 and   Ms. Stewart  was so welcoming and supportive. I’ve grown so much as an artist not only in photography and film, but also doing things way out of my comfort zone like my first large painting, or my self portrait out of chalk. The pieces shown here are some of my favourites, comprised of many photos I’ve taken over the past two years.

With careful planning and thoughtful input from the KES Arts Faculty, Senior students   Katie Goddard, Max Cole, and Eva Redmond were able to put together a comprehensive and entertaining video presentation celebrating KES students dedicated to our various Arts programmes. Katie and Max co-chair the Arts Committee and hosted the online event. Fellow Arts Committee member, Eva is an expert film producer and she edited a flawless combination of recorded clips into a 30-minute video. Our in-house YouTube expert,   Mr. Pat LePoidevin, set up the online experience to air, and when it premiered 'live' at 7:00pm on Tuesday, there were 166 viewers. As I type this, there have been well over 125 more viewers and I suspect many more before this article reaches you.

A Great Smile and A Happy Tune!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 28, 2020 12:45:00 PM

Two things that make us all feel good are a smile and a happy tune. As we move forward from the setbacks of late and looking toward a better tomorrow, I am delighted to showcase Grade 12 student, Parker Kim's recent performance. Here he is playing a Maroon 5 tune, called Memories. It's a selection based on Pachelbel's cannon chord progression that everyone loves to begin with; however, the joy of this familiar tune is equally matched by Parker's smile and talented guitar playing. And to kick up the feel-good factor, he gives his brother a hug right after his performance while the audience cheers. Watch this and you'll feel good!

Angel & Jennifer - Treat You Better

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 19, 2020 7:41:00 AM

Occasionally, I like to highlight various coffee house performances, and this time I am featuring Grade 10 students,   Angel Li and Jennifer Liang. At our coffee houses students have the opportunities to be spontaneous. We're a very busy school and so there is little extra-curricular time for rehearsal; nevertheless, the performances are always good. What is equally pleasing is the acceptance and support that the performers get from those in attendance. All promises and expectations are left at the door. That's what music is really all about, isn't it? Enjoy   their performance  of Shawn Mendes' hit,   Treat You Better.
