We did it! Congratulations to all Award Recipients!
With careful planning and thoughtful input from the KES Arts Faculty, Senior students Katie Goddard, Max Cole, and Eva Redmond were able to put together a comprehensive and entertaining video presentation celebrating KES students dedicated to our various Arts programmes. Katie and Max co-chair the Arts Committee and hosted the online event. Fellow Arts Committee member, Eva is an expert film producer and she edited a flawless combination of recorded clips into a 30-minute video. Our in-house YouTube expert, Mr. Pat LePoidevin, set up the online experience to air, and when it premiered 'live' at 7:00pm on Tuesday, there were 166 viewers. As I type this, there have been well over 125 more viewers and I suspect many more before this article reaches you.
Of course, nothing beats keeping company with like-minded patrons of the Arts for an evening of celebration in our beautiful Fountain Performing Arts Theatre on campus, but I am so very pleased with the outcome of the online event. I encourage you to set aside 30 minutes and recognize the vast talent of our King's-Edgehill student body. Hopefully, we'll be back to some degree of 'normal' by the time next spring rolls around!
KES inspires academic, athletic and artistic excellence with a commitment to the traditional community ideals of gentleness and learning, dignity and respect, so that students may discover and cultivate their unique potential, prepare for post-secondary education and develop a life-long enthusiasm for the spiritual and intellectual growth necessary to flourish in the contemporary world.
