We'd like to give a big thanks to Ms. Joaan from iCan and our music teachers Ms. Angie and Ms. Irene for introducing our Primary students to Boomwhackers and Chair Drumming today. In even just a short, 40-minute lesson, the students were able to learn to play the songs below:
Grade 2 - "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" Grade 3 - "Chopsticks" Grade 4 - "Uptown Funk" Grade 5 - A few rock songs, including "Smooth Operator"
The day ended with a concert, where each grade performed for the rest of the Primary students and teachers.
Quite an accomplishment for just one day's practice! Tomorrow our Secondary music teachers and students will return the favor and visit iCan to give their students some violin lessons.
We take pride in being a part of the vibrant Phnom Penh educational community and enjoy connecting with other local schools for projects such as these.
Thank you to Jeff from College4U, and our Grade 12 Guidance Counselor Mr. Fechter, for helping our students get ready for college applications.
Our Grade 10, 11 and 12 students were on hand to hear the presentation and begin setting up information on their profiles they will be able to use when they want to apply for university.
College4U has relationships with hundreds of schools in North America and the UK, and can help connect our students with accredited universities. With IGCSE, AS and A-Level exams coming up in May, it was a good reminder that it is never too early to begin thinking about university!
