Message from the Executive Principal

Father's Day, BISAD Diploma celebrations, Splash Days, House Shirt Day, Year 6 Disco, Primary Transition Day and let's not forget BISAD’s Got Talent! What a week; the calendar is always full of these magical moments, another example of why BIS Abu Dhabi is now the school of choice for so many families and why we are at waitlisted across so many different year groups for the next academic year.

This week I have observed a sense of joy as families have been purchasing the yearbook. This book is a collection of moments shared with friends, families and teachers and signifies a completely different experience to the last few years. 

All these great moments are created by caring practitioners who recognise the importance of human connections, the value of ensuring the school environment engages beyond the academic and the sense of joy and happiness that everyone feels.

At the end of each academic year, we have a number of staff moving on. I want to take this opportunity to thank all colleagues who have supported our youngsters through their journey.  To work in a school environment is not always easy, it is a fast paced, energetic and an ever-changing space.  The school environment needs to adapt to provide for the children, all of whom are different, all unique and all with their own challenges a place to flourish.  To our teachers, staff and colleagues: thank you.

“A good educator is like a candle; it consumes itself to light the way for others”

I am also aware lots of our families are now making plans for Eid Al Adha, I wish you all a safe and blessed break, look after each other and keep each other safe. Eid Mubarak.
