Theme

The theme of the festival was loosely ‘Music from film and TV’

The students worked in a variety of ensembles: Orchestra, Wind Band, Senior Choir, Junior Choir, String Orchestra, Brass Ensemble, Woodwind Ensemble, Flute Choir, Rock Groups, at music selected by the ensemble director. Numerous workshops/rehearsals worked them hard, in a way not always possible in schools, in order to produce polished performances.

These rehearsal sessions were interspersed with non-musical activities to provide a little light relief! These included Wii games, ball games, making snow globes, hip-hop, making balloon animals, card tricks, juggling, raspberry pie (music programming), face-painting and set design.

The weekend culminated in a final, grand concert for participants to present the fruits of their labour. The packed audience comprised dignitaries from the participating schools, parents and friends and received the performances enthusiastically.

All the participating students and staff, departed Kuwait tired yet musically fulfilled and all took something with them that they will treasure – the friendship of fellow musicians.

Such is the popularity of the annual Music Festival that as soon as the final concert was over students were asking when and where the next one is!

SAXoPicture-06669BAC-63111500

The third BSME Debating Tournament took place at St Christopher’s School, Bahrain on the weekend of 6th - 8th November. Thirty-six teams from schools in Bahrain, Egypt, Pakistan, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Qatar took part in this event.

This has grown year by year and for the 2014 tournament there were 136 debates, covering many diverse topics, from anti-aging drugs to the charisma effect of Vladimir Putin, and the European carbon trading scheme.

The teams in the final advanced through seven rounds of debate, four of which involved prepared speech and three were impromptu, with an additional round for seniors.

They later qualified from the quarter-finals and semi-finals.

The final motion was:This House believes that Hacking is Healthy and was contested between St Christopher’s and Sherborne School, Qatar, in the Junior Section; and St Christopher’s and The British School of Kuwait in the Senior Section. St Christopher’s won both sections.

The Gulf Daily News Editor-in-Chief, George Williams presented the winners with their prizes during an awards ceremony.

"Debating is a great way to learn and gain confidence," said Mr Williams.

"Everyone talks about the importance of poise, preparation and performance - but to me the prime ingredient is passion.

"All the best debates, regardless of personal opinions, will only be exciting and convincing if fuelled by passionate belief and plenty of that was in evidence here today.

"In fact the standard of debating throughout this tournament has been phenomenal and I pay tribute to St Christopher's School for staging what has already become a prestigious multicultural event."

"This kind of competition increases the students' confidence in public speaking and helps them think spontaneously.

"It also encourages team work and teaches them research methods."

Mr David Milnes, the Event Host Coordinator said the competition also paves the way for the major World Schools Debate Championships, which take place annually.

St Christopher's, Bahrain

Dhahran British Grammar School, Saudi Arabia

Under 11 Large School Games-DESS 2013

The BSME U11 Games marked it’s 10th anniversary in Dubai at the weekend, with its organisers labeling the 2013 event as one of the very best.
The inter-school tournament sees pupils from all over the Middle East compete in various sports and this time it was hosts Dubai English Speaking School who came out in top.
It was also a fitting way for DESS to mark their 50th anniversary, and head of sport Max Lohe, said: “It’s been a fantastic weekend of sport, the children thoroughly enjoyed it which is the main thing.


“We’ve had teams from all over the Middle East to compete and it’s been a great success.”

BASKETBALL:

The Egyptian teams set the pace before eventual winners St Christopher’s of Bahrain powered through – beating hosts DESS 6-4 on their way to the final. There they edged out El Allson Cairo 3-2.Results:
1) St Christopher’s Bahrain
2) El Allson Cairo
3) MES Cairo


 NETBALL:

JESS Dubai and DESS Dubai took the early lead in their respective groups winning all their fixtures. DESS had a tough play-off against BIS Riyadh to reach the finals where they faced JESS Dubai. The final was a fast-paced and skilful game and after a nailbiting 12 minutes of play, DESS Dubai took a 3–2 victory.Results:1) DESS Dubai2) JESS Dubai3) BIS Riyadh

 FOOTBALL:

Both pools featured quality sides, with past BSME Champions on either side of the draw. DESS Dubai were unlucky in their opening match to draw with BIS Jeddah after coming out and scoring an early goal. However, they bounced back to win their next game 2-0 against KES Kuwait. Eventually they had to settle for fifth place, just missing out on the last four.The semi-finals were fought out between BIS Jeddah, JESS Dubai, NES Kuwait and Dukhan Qatar. Both games were tight and both went to extra-time and ultimately penalty shootouts.
