CTI Choir Christmas Concert
December 12, 2014

The hall was packed, and the concert sent the audience heavenward! The program involved different kinds of Christmas music, all cheery, exciting and uplifting. The singers excelled, even when the music called for difficult harmonies. All in all, a most memorable occasion, and Conductor Paul Awaraji is to be commended!

Several CTI students sang solos, backed up by the choir. But the surprise of the event were the electric contributions of our own Mrs Mariane Daou, along with her husband Mr Rawad. Mrs Krista Kahoush brilliantly accompanied. Bravi!

Preparing for Christmas
November 2014

Christmas is still far off in coming, and the CTI students are already celebrating. One group attended that quintessential Christmas ballet, Tchaikovsky's The Nutcraker. You can read about that in our Newsletter section. Another group of student visited a very special Christmas Bazaar, sampled the food, and bought ornaments. There is a lot more to go, and December is not even here yet!

Sports in November
November 2014

There were innumerous sports events in November, as the weather became colder. There were games, events and practice sessions organized by CTI sports teachers and coaches. Football was thriving, and the CTI teams played several schools and a university (AUST - devastating CTI loss). Gym went on at a regular basis. A newly formed girls' basketball team started practicing for an upcoming tournament. And zumba had students and teachers moving to music!

Kindergarten Halloween / St Barbara's

Parents love to see their children's pictures online. Unfortunately, most faces are covered with masks! We have tried to incorporate a large number of beautiful costumes, and we apologize if some students do not appear here!

Halloween and St Barbara's
November 2014

Halloween and St Barbara's are celebrated simultaneously at CTI, in several events. Unfortunately, we cannot show all the costumes and disguises of students: there were close to 300 contestants! Each student excelled in the choice of outfit, and we congratulate one and all. For more pictures, you would have to wait for the yearbook of this year. But we would like to single out a cool 1960's guy ("like peace, love, man") and an astounding gypsy girl. We would also like to point out a curious onlooker, admiring a group of sylph-like ladies! Boo!

Shukri Anis Fakhoury and Independence Day Activities
November 21, 2014

We were honored to host the eminent author, Mr Shukri Anis Fakhoury, who delived the Independence Day speech to the students. He fired our enthusiasm about our beloved homeland. The event was capped by patriotic songs from the kindergarten classes, and an awesome mini musical presented by the students of Mrs Abou Malhab. And if this were not enough, Mr Bahzad Karam organized a culinary patriotic display of over 500 sandwiches. Happy birthday, Lebanon!

Grade 6 visits the Parliament
November 14, 2014

Based on the initiative of Mrs Nathalia Georgi, the students of grade 6 were able to visit the Lebanese Parliament. It was a lesson learned on site, and it came at a very timely moment, just before Independence Day. This once, these students felt very VIP, and part of the legislative community.

Circus at CTI!
November 13, 2014

Circus at CTI? CTI students were surprised to go to recess, only to be met by a group of ambulatory circus people. It was a joyous occasion, with jugglers, acrobats and stilt-wakers entertaining the younger students, then the older ones. After many spectacular feats, people from the audience were chosen to participate in the fun.

Rafael in Rio!
12 June 2014

Despite foreboding weather, "Rafael in Rio", our musical with a Brazilian theme, was performed to thunderous (no pun intended) acclaim. Congratulations to the students who did a superb job in acting and dancing. Many thanks to Mrs Krista Kashouh who put all of this together, as well as to Miss Areni Taslakian who coached the drama, and to Mr Rami Khalaf who designed and executed those wondrous sets. 

Also thanks to all the teachers who taught dances, supervised and helped in the performance. It was an evening to treasure!

The event was filmed by Tele Lumiere.

Spain
Spring 2014

It was another dream CTI trip, this time to Madrid, Spain, during Spring 2014. A large group of students and teachers visited art-filled museums, walked down quaint roads, and engaged in every imaginable dream activity. Their outings took them even outside Madrid, to Segovia, Toledo, Valle de Caidos, El Escorial and elsewhere. It was a trip to remember forever, as the pictures testify. Where to next year?

Lights, Camera, Christmas
Christmas 2013

The Christmas musical for grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 had Hollywood as a theme. A group of intrepid actors and producers are putting up a Christmas story film, and their work needed some correction in order to present the real Christmas story. This bubbling production was directed by Mrs Kashouh. Mrs Aida Tabbal and Mr Rami Khalaf designed the sets.
