The International School hits the big stage for the Christmas Show 2015
The International School Christmas Show 2015.
Presenting the ‘Countdown to Christmas’
The children worked very hard on their singing and the preparation for their roles in this years Christmas play. The students have shown a huge amount of dedication and have been working hard in the build up to their debut in the big stage!
It is always a wonderful moment for friends and family to see their little ones perform on a stage. This year was very special as many of the younger children had never performed on such a big stage in front of such a large audience. The nerves held and everyone had fun!
The evening started with Klare Fielding, Music Teacher at International School, welcoming the audience to the Christmas production.
The PTA provided a cash bar with all the trimmings such as Mulled wine and many parents had donated goodies like mince pies, sausage rolls, cookies and cakes for all to enjoy.
Presentation for Dedication
Mrs. Hinks took the opportunity to congratulate our long-serving Mrs. Indrani Saunders for her 20 years teaching at the school and Mrs. Barbara Francis for her dedication to the school for 30 years! They were resented with gifts and huge cheers from the audience.
‘The Countdown to Christmas’ Synopsis
The scene in the Moss family household is all too familiar in the busy run up to Christmas. Mum is frantically trying to get her head around all the preparations on her list.
But with a visit from her Fairy Clock-Mother and other special helpers, Mum can sit back and relax as all of these things on her ‘to do’ list are addressed.
As we tackle Christmas shopping, decorations and dinner, we discover that God’s preparations for the first Christmas were somewhat different….
A large crowd of friends and family joined us at Brayton Hall to see the children perform the ‘Countdown to Christmas’ and to enjoy the annual nativity scene by the kindergarten classes.
The audience were asked to join in singing ‘O Come all ye faithful’ which raised the roof!
Many thanks to our kind sponsors:Vix Bar and Grill, Finishing Touch, Garam Marsala, Chopsticks, Carlisle Supplies and Island Printing.
Thank you so much to all of those involved in making both of this event such a huge success: staff, parents and especially the children!

Behind the scenes at the Rehearsals
Over 4 weeks the children scheduled in the performance rehearsals. They worked very hard and each child added their own ‘flavour’ to their roles.
Many of the children with solos and smaller group songs had individual singing lessons with Mrs. Fielding in the lead u to the event.
