SONGKRAN

Students splashed, soaked and generally drenched each other as part of the Songkran celebrations at GIS.

On the final day of Term 2, the Thai Department organised a range of traditional Thai games and activities for all the students. These included collecting water in sponges and going through an obstacle course to trying to hit a box while blindfolded.

Students also paid respects to their teachers by pouring water over their hands and daubing their faces with powder. The activities ended with a competition to see which teacher and students could make the biggest splash in one of the school's pools!

Many thanks to the Thai Department – and Mr Carr – for helping to organise such a great event!



DRAMATIC SUCCESS FOR GIS STUDENTS!

Talented students from GIS had an incredible 100 per cent pass rate following recent music and drama examinations.
  

There were 100 students who took assessments with the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) - and everyone passed.
Students practised hard for weeks beforehand and many were rewarded with distinctions following the results. The examinations are internationally-recognised and again show why GIS is renowned as the leading school for performing arts in the region.
