Sports Day

                        Our school sport’s day was held on the 27th of May at the Jubilee Stadium. Traditionally, every year our band would be marching but due to the unexpected bad weather, we had to play under the shelter. Nevertheless, we played our marching songs, which were Abington Ridge, The Hustle and Sousa Spectacular energetically. It was definitely a new experience for all of us but we do hope to show our marching skills next year.

Workshop By Mr Simon Ng

On the 24th of May, Mr Simon Ng, a well known band director came all the way from Singapore to visit our band through IMH. He taught us many new techniques and exposed us to a lot of information on Singaporean and Japanese bands. He visits Japanese bands very frequently and he is known as Mr. Takashi there. Mr Simon gave us suggestions to improve ourselves and he hopes to come back and visit us again to see how our band grows.

We are very thankful and grateful that he came over to Kuching to listen to us, voluntarily! He is a very friendly and respected band director. Thank you, Mr Simon!

Teacher’s Day 2014

Image

Once again, it’s teacher’s day!

On the 16th of May, just a few days after our Mid-year exams, our school held the annual teacher’s day celebration. As usual, we played Negaraku, Ibu Pertiwiku and St. Teresa’s School Song for the formal section of Teacher’s Day 2014, themed, 60s 70s and 80s.

After that, we kicked start the informal part of the teacher’s day celebration with “Fireflies” and “Prince of Egypt”.

Then the Form 5s [The Neon Buskers] (that’s us!) presented a ensemble performance “Birdland”. The crowd went wild and the teachers enjoyed it too!

Upon request from our principal, Puan Mary John, we played “Kwek Mambo” spontaneously as it suits the theme. The prefect councils started dancing to the song on the stage, and so did the teachers! Puan Mary requested all the teachers to be up on the stage to dance. It was definitely a special teacher’s day, different from all the other celebrations. All the teachers enjoyed it, very much!

Image

The celebration ended at 12 pm with positive comments from the teachers and our principal. Great job everyone! On behalf of the band, I would like to wish all the teachers a Happy Teacher’s Day! Thank you for your dedication and love for us 🙂
