One People One Planet

Come and relive the vibrant energy of our One People One Planet Celebration! On Tuesday, 30th January, our school was transformed into a hub of unity, wellness, and sustainability.

Our students poured their dedication and creativity into organising this event, and their hard work was evident in the beaming smiles that filled the air. From thought-provoking TED Talks on sustainability to enlightening presentations by guest speakers, the morning was brimming with inspiration and learning opportunities.

In the afternoon, under the warm sun, families indulged in a plethora of festival-style activities and sports. From the rhythmic melodies of BIYAND's performance to the laughter echoing through the Eco Enterprise area games and the excitement of the FI recycled cars competition, there was something for everyone.

My goal is to instil this passion in my students, empowering them to become independent and self-driven learners.

From Internship to Impact
Meet Diana Vasile, a dynamic Year 11 student whose educational journey transcends the conventional boundaries of textbooks and classrooms. Introduced to the captivating world of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) during a week of work experience in Year 10, Diana's exploration was ignited by the guidance of Ms. Juett, Assistant Head of Secondary, and the encouragement of Dr. Haïfa Ben-Romdhane, a Professor in Environmental Engineering and Geomatics at Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi. This encounter blossomed into a further remarkable four-month project, culminating in the creation of a compelling StoryMap that intricately weaves together environmental narratives using GIS technology.

Our Head of Secondary Chris Lowe gives his insight into Knowledge is Power

Sometime in the late 1990’s I walked into a café in Birmingham and said hello to a student of mine who happened to be there enjoying lunch with her family.  Mum and Dad smiled at me, said hello and I overheard the girl whisper ‘that’s my History teacher’ to them.  I’ve always quite enjoyed the minor celebrity status of being a teacher out of the school building.  Students are often very confused by the notion that teachers exist outside of the classroom.  A while later, as the family left the café, the father gave me a nod, smiled and said

‘‘History teacher eh?  What year was the Battle of Waterloo then?’’
