The HS Music Concert is starts at 5.30pm on Thursday, November 28th. This year’s them is an exploration of music connected with the theme of ‘War and Peace’. The program will explore the power of music to move people to join together, both in times of war and again when they are seeking peace. The Music department would like to encourage you to use this as a time to bring in much needed supplies for Yolanda victims. The FAT lobby will be a collection point for these goods. If you wish to donate money instead, there will also be a collection. Here is the poster for the event:
ISM hosted its first Red Carpet Night on November 7th as a fundraiser for two of the school’s service learning partners, Berdesaco and Papaya Academy . The film Metro Manila has already won Audience Choice at this year’s Sundance Film festival and is now in contention for Academy Award selection. The audience was lucky enough to not only view the film but also to meet with the lead actors, Jake Macapagal and Althea Vega, who posed for photos and signed posters. The event was extremely well supported with 122600PHP being raised for the groups. In addition, many of the schools contract workers from around the school (security, cleaners, canteen staff etc) were able to enjoy the film free of charge because of the kind support of Captive Cinema Film Distributors, the company who is promoting the film in the Philippines.
The Fine Arts Council and Service Learning Council would like to say a big THANK YOU for this support and are already looking to have another Red Carpet event soon! In the meantime, here is a link to the album containing pictures of the event:
