Music

Music

It is said that ‘music is a language the whole world speaks’, and as such, every child enrolled at our school has the opportunity to learn that language.

It is our philosophy that a well-educated child has a firm foundation in the Arts, and excellence in the Arts leads to fulfillment in all spheres – the cognitive, emotional, social and spiritual. Throughout primary and secondary all students have access to music lessons on a weekly basis.

In secondary, from Year 7-9, students have 3 music lessons every two weeks, involving the opportunity to explore all aspects of music theory and practice. An exciting feature of student participation is the Concert Band, which contains woodwind, brass, percussion, string and electronic instruments.

For those interested in private music lessons, they are offered on a daily basis across a number of instruments including piano, guitar, violin, flute and drums.

Summer School

Summer

ISB hosted its first official Summer School in the summer of 2016. Attended by over 200 young people, it will be a feature of July and August every year. December may also see another similar event.

The format is popular. Children of ages 3-14 take part in a variety of activities from 7am-12pm and are supervised in fun activities and games. On average there are 80 – 100 children present on each day. The video link below, compiled by one of the student volunteers, Amai Rawiri from Year 11, shows the summer school at its best!

The Dramatic Arts

Drama

The arts are highly regarded at ISB and drama has a special place in the life of the school as  an art form, a practical activity and an intellectual discipline. A drama education, which begins naturally with learning through dramatic play, will eventually include many elements of theatre. Like the other arts, it involves imagination and feelings and helps us to make sense of the world. It does this through the creation of imagined characters and situations, and the relationships and events that they encounter. From this solid base, ISB students bloom into actors of the highest ability and self-confidence, highlighted in the quality productions and the full houses!

Through engagement in drama, pupils apply their imaginations and draw upon their own personal experiences. Their increasing knowledge and understanding of how the elements of drama work enables them to effectively shape, express and share their ideas, feelings and responses, making use of language, space, symbol, allegory and metaphor. It provides an opportunity for pupils to explore the world and people from other places, times and cultures, and to examine differences and similarities with their own environment. All this, in a safe, nurturing environment.

All Students participate in Drama in Key Stage 3. They will explore the world of theatre from Commedia Dell’ Arte to costume design, whilst developing their confidence and communication skills.

In Key Stage 4-5, students will be introduced to the many different roles within Theatre. After which, they will start developing a specific skill. This might be acting, deign or directing.

There is an active Drama ECA which will lead into a school production as well as regular festival/events which require performers.

Our yearly highlights for the Drama department include the school production, Singapore Arts Trip (an opportunity to see live theatre, music and visit art galleries, drama and music festivals).

PE and Sport

ISB
Physical Education and Sport

Throughout our long history, ISB has regarded sport and physical education as an important building block in developing well-rounded children with healthy bodies and sound minds.

The ethos of our P.E. department at ISB is “Particpation & Performance”;  to enable our students to participate in sport at a recreational or social level, as well as a representative level, whether it be House, School, District or Country. To date, we have had numerous students (past and present) who have represented their countries in sports such as Football, Basketball, Swimming, Fencing and Athletics. One ISB alumnus, Zac Payne represented the Cook Islands in swimming at the 2012 London Olympics.

At ISB, all children have the opportunity to participate in sport and physical activity as a part of the school curriculum. For those that have the desire to participate in sports competitively, there are yearly local leagues and international school sports competitions all over Asia that students may train for and, if selected, compete in.

The school boasts world class sporting facilities ranging from a floodlit football pitch and indoor multipurpose sports hall, to a Crossfit gym, dance studio, and a 25m FINA-approved, touch-pad competition swimming pool.
