Nibras International School celebrates debut of Spring Concert and Art & Technology Exhibition

Nibras International School (NIS), part of International Schools Partnership (ISP), recently marked the debut of the NIS Spring Concert and Art & Technology Exhibition. The event, organized at the Emirates Institute of Banking and Finance (EIBF) Auditorium in Academic City, promoted music, art, and technology to the local community, and attracted large numbers of families and patrons of art and music.

Large and small artworks and technology projects of secondary school students at NIS greeted visitors on arrival. Surrealist paintings, still life compositions, drawings, sketches, and a host of other innovative projects were displayed throughout the exhibition area.

Dr. Jay Teston, NIS Principal and Head of School, commended the schools first-ever Spring Concert and Art & Technology Exhibition. He said: I laud our teachers and students for their hard work and dedication in making this event a massive success. This debut edition is a testament to the amazing learning opportunities that NIS provides. We believe that students learn best when they work together and apply the concepts that they have learnt in class to real life situations. This was the rationale behind organizing the first ever NIS Spring Concert and Art & Technology Exhibition.

Minalee De Silva, a Grade 11 student, expressed her happiness on participating in the debut edition of the Art and Technology Exhibition. My fellow students and I were excited to introduce different styles of art we learned in class. We were happy to see people witness our artworks and the event was a great platform for us to showcase our creativity to a wider audience, she said.

Alongside the Art and Technology Exhibition, visitors enjoyed musical performances by the NIS Elementary and Secondary Choir, Handchimes group, and the Secondary Concert Band. Highlights of the concert include the bands rendition of Katy Perrys Firework, the Middle School Handchimes take on Brahms Lullaby, the Queen Medley of the High School Handchimes group, and the performance of Greg Gilpins Why We Sing by the Elementary Choir.

The concert also featured individual performances by several talented students who used the platform to showcase their love for music and singing.
Wilfred Burros, Head of the Music Department at NIS and chairman of the event, said: It was a personal dream to see music, arts and technology promoted across the school community. I shared this vision with the art and technology teachers, and I am grateful for everyones support in bringing this idea to fruition.

The NIS Spring Concert and Art & Technology Exhibition is a testament that learning does not only happen inside the classroom. Students learn more when they are provided with opportunities and experiences to showcase their talents and skills.
