Tonight at BCISB we will go a little further into the New Normal by hosting a unique online Prom. Most schools around the world cancelled Prom, but we decided to do things just a little differently. BCISB did not want the students to miss the very special event of High School Prom due to the Covid 19 Pandemic.
This year our grade 12 students chose the theme of Wish Upon A Star for 2020.
Prom organizer High School teacher, Melissa Pfeifer, coordinated a team of willing teachers and staff at the school.
Ms Pfeifer said, ” Although the students have had amazing online academic success throughout the shutdown we knew they missed the social interaction with their fellow students. We got together as a team to make sure this Prom would certainly be one to remember”. The students were treated to Prom Packs to get ready for the event and decorate their online space.
Students from Grades 9 to 12 and their teachers will be treated to a fun evening of interactive online games and a live performance by UK recording star Kortni. Also joining us will be members of The Lockdown Band from South America.
If the idea of online Prom is not different enough, the invitation only Google Meet will have people from around the world joining it. Apart from Kortni in the United Kingdom, the Lockdown Band is currently locked down in Jakarta. Teachers will also be joining in live from Canada and Australia as well as here in Bangkok of course!
Five distinct cultures, four continents and one special night.
