Published on isbi School News dated Wednesday 10th of November 2010

The annual Awards Ceremony of the Middle and Upper Department students at The British School of Kuwait took place amidst great pomp and circumstance at the magnificent auditorium at Gulf University of Science and technology (GUST) in Mishref under the patronage of Dr Fahad Al Zumai Vice President for Administrative and Financial Affairs as parents and staff celebrated the magnificent achievements of the school year 2009/10. Head Teacher, Andrew Moulden, welcomed everyone to what she described as a very special evening when the students in Year 6 to 10 had their own unique ceremony and presented the Head Teacher Awards to Farah Odeh (academic) and Amgad Louka (service). Guest Speaker was Dr Robert Cook, Vice President of Academic Affairs at GUST, who congratulated the students on their achievements and advised parents to encourage their children to select rounded university courses which prepare them for the modern workforce and not only to stay within the boundaries of the traditional career paths. Brigadier Iain Cholerton, Director of the British Military Mission, presented the certificates for the Special Awards which went to a wide range of subject areas including Mathematics( Yousef AbuSedu and Jamil Summaq), Zeyad Al-Tamimi, Aws Al Omari for Quran memorising and recitation; Ankita Handa, Ishita Handa, Fenna Hasche, Simon Jensen and Dario Geveleski for winning the British Council Global Citizen competition and 36 students who completed ABRSM music examinations, the highest entry from a school in Kuwait. The prestigious Subject Awards went to the top student in each subject in each year group, many of whom achieved near to 100% in their final examination. The Awards Evening was also a showcase for achievement in the arts with a delightful flute solo from Sinem Ergen and an emotive vocal solo from Janaki Butterworth of Castle on a Cloud from the forthcoming BAIA production of Les Miserables. A new strings group Avalon comprising Halyna Zhmur, Sumati Butterworth and Dana Moukhaiber on violin and Joseph Thevakumar on 'cello was showcased as they performed Pachabel's Canon in D. The ubiquitous Charles Fernandes winner of the Kuwait Chopin Competition accompanied all of the performers.

BSK Principal, Paul Shropshire, proposed a vote of thanks to all the participants; he congratulated the students on their great success and proclaimed that the evening was a validation of the philosophy of The British School of Kuwait to provide the best of British education.
