Visual and Performing Arts
Creativity is a focus at MBIS and we offer a wide range of experiences outside the classroom to further develop the students' creative expression.
Building on specialist art lessons as part of the curriculum, a wide range of drawing, painting, modeling, ceramics, crafts, video and photography clubs are offered. Special theme days see the students work together in the development of a visual arts project. The walls of our school are always adorned with a wide and impressive range of students' creative work.
In addition to regular drama sessions with our Drama Instructor, all our students are involved in our termly, full-scale musical productions. Drama and dance clubs are also offered each term.
A specialist teacher teaches music as part of the curriculum. Individual instrumental tuition is provided for students at MBIS to accommodate their expanding musical needs. Lessons are delivered by a team of visiting teachers and take place throughout the school day in our purpose-built practice rooms.
We currently offer lessons for guitar, piano, saxophone, clarinet, violin, cello, drums and singing. There may also be opportunities to join the Brass Band - where students are taught together as a large ensemble; the School Choir - who perform at events such as our annual ‘Celebration of Success’ and The British Embassy Carol Concert; or the School Rock Band - who have performed at a Red Sea hotel and won prizes at the annual inter-school ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition.
At the end of each term MBIS holds a ‘Café Noir’: a special evening where our instrumental students and school ensembles show their talents to parents.
Every year, the school takes part in a Creativity Day with other international schools. Activities include drama, dance, music and art.
