This week we had one of the most fun assemblies I’ve seen in my time at KISC. One of the teachers had set the challenge that each class had to perform a lip-sync (i.e. mime to a song).
The gauntlet was laid down, and each class took up the challenge. This included several hours of practising, in fact on the evening before the assembly I had to kick 2 classes worth of students of campus when they were still practising at 5pm. And most students who were involved were back on site by the time I got into KISC at 7:40 the next morning (school starts at 8 here).
Well the competition was fierce, with a mixture of new songs (I didn’t know them) and some classics (Jackson 5 & Elvis!). The winners were year 12 with their sync of Journeys’ Don’t stop Believin’, as decided by audience applause. Click the link to see the video.
The videos of the other performances are due to be uploaded to our KISC youtube account in the next few days.
There was a moral to the story - it’s ok to be yourself, even if it is fun to be someone else sometimes.
And in case you haven’t seen it yet, here is a lip-sync someof the staff, including Dan, did at the Christmas social. The choice of song is a bit of an in-joke we will confess.
