This year Harrow Beijing held its first ever Lower School and Upper School Performing Arts Week. A grand celebration of the talented performers in our school!
Throughout the week,each morning as pupils arrived at school, they enjoyed Lower School and Upper School musicians playing in the main reception.700 parents attended a variety of performances from LAMDA Musical Theatre to The Shakespeare Festival.There were 14 exciting events held and staff and students were fully involved and immersed in the joy of performing arts.
The Performing Arts Week started with the art exhibition themed 'In the Name of Art', displaying the talents and creative thoughts of Harrow Beijing GCSE and A Level students in various forms of artistic endeavour.
The annual Shakespeare Festival is one of the highlight events at Harrow Beijing. The students brilliantly performed the world's classic plays, showing their talent and skills in performance, language and literature.
Harrow Beijing students rocked the campus with powerful music! Our teachers also turned into drummers, electric guitarists and singers and in doing so gave our students quite a few surprises!
The music ambassadors of Harrow Beijing planned and hosted a Prep and Senior Phase assembly to showcase our students’ talents in instruments, dance and LAMDA performances. They delivered an audio-visual feast to the audience.
Public speaking is a necessary skill to succeed. Harrow alumni such as British Prime Minister Mr Winston Churchill made inspiring speeches at crucial moments in history. In the oracy festival, Harrow Beijing students delivered English speeches in a Harrovian manner.
'The week was a full team effort from Drama, Dance, Music and LAMDA. A huge thank you for everyone's efforts to make the week a wonderful experience!'
