Lots of fun at the Discovery Culture Festival

Posted: December 4, 2015

We are half way through Discovery Culture Festival 2015, and have already seen a number of wonderful artists, musicians, authors and educators visiting the College to run workshops, talks and demonstrations with our students.

Some of the first few days’ highlights include the fabulous Carnival Parade which launched the Festival, Chinese watercolour specialist Judyanna Li working with Y3, author Sarah Brennan hosting talks with all Primary year groups, African percussion duo Leon & Guy entertaining Y1 & Y2 learning Capoeira, Street Dance entertainment by Y5, ceramics specialist Elaine Meigh instructing Y6, and the performance of ‘Christmas Cadavers’ by Y12 drama students.

Next week the College will continue to be abuzz with artistic and cultural events from journalist and author Nury Vittachi working with Y12 & 13, Faust theatre classes with Year 8s, to the senior students experiencing electives that include visiting HK artist Kacey Wong’s studio, the historic HSBC Archives, cake decorating at Complete Deelite, songwriting, ceramics and many more. Literary activities will continue for all students, including fun book quizzes and ‘Guess Who’s Behind the Book’ competitions.

For details, check the Festival Highlights and Programme.

There are still a number of activities parents can come in to enjoy. See student talent shine at Ensemble Evening on Tuesday 8 December, view the beautiful Primary Peace Tree and No Boundaries Bamboo Grove in the G/F Foyer, and visit the ESF Masarang photographic exhibition in the Theatre Foyer. Come and see your children’s classrooms (Primary) or class doors (Secondary) transformed into a book or literary genre.
