Lister Students shine at the Model United Nations

8 year 10 students took part in the Model United Nations on the 6th and 7th of December. Model United Nations is a form of debate in which students simulate the United Nations and represent a given country and create solutions for world issues. This year Lister participated in the Global Classrooms MUN London in association UNA -USA the official United Nations Association of the USA and the Business Council of the United Nations. Our delegates participated in committees across a conference with an attendance of over 300 delegates discussing Global Health and Wellbeing. Harun Shekoni was given an award for Best Delegate and Nazeerah Patel also received an Honourable Mention Award. The entire delegation also received informal commendation awards in their sub committees for their public speaking and their contributions overall. This was a fantastic achievement for Lister MUN Society – and we are very proud of how well our students represented the school.

Emancipation of Expressionism

Year 11 GCSE Dance students were free to express themselves in their Emancipation of Expressionism Set work workshop lead by Lister alumni Ricardo Da Silva. Emancipation of Expressionism is studied by all GCSE Dance students as part of their theory exam. Ricardo taught a sequence from section 4 called “Empowerment’, performed to music by Olafur Arnalds. Our Students were fantastic and mastered the actions and the mood so much that they can write about it.

The Year 11s were very fortunate to have this workshop with Ricardo as he danced in the original piece a few years ago. Ricardo is a dancer with Boy Blue Entertainment and Just Us Dance Theatre.

Rambert Dance Company Perform A Linha Curva at Sadlers Wells

Hi, I am Valentina I don’t do gcse dance but I attend lots of Dance clubs so I was invited to the theatre on Tuesday the 21st November to watch a dance company called ‘Rambert’ perform in ‘A Linha Curva’ as reward.

I really enjoyed the creative choreography and how they used the lighting to direct movements, I thought it was very clever. Even as non gcse dance student I understood the theme of having fun, it was very clear and clever. I would recommend that you go and see it. I also enjoyed the other two pieces afterwards, Ms Lungu and Ms coke enjoyed the last weird piece which had live music, comedy and some narration. I promise you it was weird, funny but weird. One thing I would suggest to Rambert is to improve their music of the second piece, I didn’t really enjoy it because I didn’t think it complimented the dance. Thank you to the dance team for inviting me.
