20:20 Global Art Exhibition
The long awaited 20:20 art exhibition arrived in the Jubilee Hall this week. Artworks on the theme, What we think we become, produced by students from Dwight London, New York, Seoul, Vancouver and Shanghai are on display. The small format (20cm x 20cm) has inspired some very intricate pieces that make effective use of the instinct of the viewer to get up close to see each one in detail, whilst others are bold and take advantage of bright colours and surprising textures. Miss Ross and I agree (without a hint of bias) that the Dwight London contributions are the highlight of the show. It is well worth a visit to the Jubilee Hall to see the exhibition and visitors would be very welcome.
A few weeks ago I wrote that the school was looking to move our school year a bit earlier to try to align more closely with other international schools and to allow for more teaching days for our oldest students before they reach their final IB Diploma exams. After a consultation with staff I have come to the conclusion that there is not enough time to consider all the implications of a change and adequately consult the school community in time to make changes for the next academic year. We will, however, put together a working party to look at term dates during the summer with a view to adjusting the school calendar for 2017/18 and beyond. The school dates for next year are below.
Best wishes to all for the weekend.
