Kajonkiet International School's Busking Week underway

Busking Week performances will take place in the KIS lobby area at pickup time.

The busy week of musical performances started off with a main assembly, where students of various grades sung songs around the theme of friendship and community.

Year 1 and 2 kids performed “She’ll be Coming ‘Round the Mountain”. Year 3 kids sung “It’s a Small World After All” and Year 4 kids sung Louis Armstrong’s “Its a Wonderful World”.

The Year 5 and 6 kids also performed some classic Beatles numbers, including: “With a Little Help from my Friends”, “Yellow Submarine” and “Imagine”.

“This theme of friendship through music is something I really wanted to introduce to the secondary students. And because of this they will be singing ‘Lean On Me’, ‘I’ll Be There For You’, the theme from Friends, and ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’,” said Mr Davison.

“The reason I got into music is because it’s a community thing for me, I used to play in a lot of community bands, jazz bands and so on and I’m still good friends with many of my band-mates to this day.

“For me, music isn’t so much about being excellent, it’s about having a good time and learning something. Getting involved and seeing kids just giving it a go is the main thing,” he added.

Performances are taking place all week in the clock area during pickup time between 3:30pm and 4:30pm.

There will be a range of instrumental, a capella and karaoke performances by students of all ages. Parents are encouraged to stay a while to enjoy the music, and this being busking week, donate some money. Money raised during the week will go towards supporting the Koh Lone School, which was devastated by the 2004 Tsunami.

“If parents want to sit and watch they can, or just have it as background music, that’s the relaxed nature of busking,” said Mr Davison.

He also said to watch out for some of the school’s talented young musicians, siblings Wawa and Waping Vongpin.

“They are award-wining pianists who have travelled all around Thailand. Last year they won the silver medal in the National Yamaha Piano Contest in Bangkok.

“They really have to be seen to be believed, they play duet pieces and they are incredible.”

KIS teachers are also taking part, Head of Secondary Mr Gareth Eyenon will be playing the guitar and singing. While English Teacher Mr Dave Faugier will play jazz piano, and of course music teachers Greisy Martin and Mr Davison will also be joining in the fun.

The week will culminate in a final assembly where the whole primary school will perform an Israeli song called “Zum Gali Gali”.
