2018 - TEDx Youth@WISS Programme

Art Exhibitions

WISS Dance Company: The WISS Dance Company has grown this year to include 70 dancers
forming three different dance companies comprised of students from Grade 1 through to Grade 9.
This evening you will see three different dance pieces. We hope to IGNITE your passion for dance
once again and get everybody moving and grooving to the beat!

Ignited by Nature: Nursery students provide creative responses to their awe, wonder and
discoveries of the natural world.

Ignited for Change: Pre-Kindergarten students share their ideas on planet Earth.

It’s all just rubbish: Ignited by the amount of rubbish the Kindergarten students found around
the WISS campus, each KG class decided to create an artwork using unwanted rubbish.

Ignited by the need for change to better manage waste and pollution in China: Primary art
students used recyclables from their homes and here at school to create a collection of assemblages
that depicted the grave issue of pollution and garbage management in China.
