This year the secondary students performed the school musical adaptation of ‘ANNIE’ ​​in Act Two, ​which combines the original Broadway show with the 2014 film remake. Adapted, directed and choreographed by Mrs. Georgie Nicholls, (Head of Performing Arts), with Mrs Brown as assistant director and Virgina Campolucci. as student assistant director. Leah Malbrook (year 7) played the title role, a lovable orphan who has had a ‘hard knock life’. Angelo Ponan-Charlette played ‘Will Warbucks’ alongside the​ V​​illainous ‘Miss Hannigan’ and cunning ‘Guy’ who were played by Alice Chionni, and Nick Amelie, whilst Dar’ya Klymenko, wowed the audience as the caring ‘Grace’. A number of Year 7-10 students created a strong, supportive and energetic chorus and showed dedication to rehearsals from Term 1 this year.
The Performing Arts department would like to give a special thanks to all the parents, teachers and members of the PTA for their support, and to the participating students for their commitment and outstanding performance contribution during our whole school annual show.

On 28th April, International school Seychelles joined the entire world, for the first time, in celebrating this year’s international Jazz festival. The program featured some special musical and dramatical presentations from our own students and staff. The visiting national music school Brass band wrapped up the program with two great jazz pieces.
International Jazz Day brings together communities, schools, artists, historians, academics and jazz enthusiasts all over the world to celebrate and learn about jazz and its roots, future and impact; raise awareness of the need for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding; and reinforce international cooperation and communication. Every year on April 30, this international art form is recognized for fostering gender equality and for promoting individual expression, peace, dialogue among cultures, diversity, respect for human dignity, and the eradication of discrimination.
Mr. John Chitambo would like to thank all the teachers for their support and participation. Special thanks to the National conservatoire of Performing Arts’ band for accepting our invitation on a short notice.
See you next year.
