It's always a joy to share what's happening at BIS Abu Dhabi, especially during this exciting first term. We have so much to talk about, reflecting the vibrant life of our Primary and Secondary school.

Firstly, I sincerely thank all the parents who joined us for the PE and Sport presentation earlier this week. Sport holds significant importance at BIS Abu Dhabi and is a passion we all share. The presentation highlighted the vital link between sports and our school's vision and mission. At BIS Abu Dhabi, we firmly believe that sport is for all, providing numerous opportunities for children to engage in various Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs), sports teams, and even our pathway of the BSME games. Thank you to Mr. Baker and Mr. Cochlin for their insightful contributions during the presentation. We welcome any parent feedback or additional questions regarding the session.

This week, we successfully hosted our 2nd annual Young Leaders Conference, which included 187 of our students from Year 7 to Year 13 within our school. The conference placed significant emphasis on fostering the development of leadership skills among our students. We firmly believe that nurturing these abilities is paramount, as it equips them with essential tools to navigate and excel in various facets of life. The process of learning to lead plays a pivotal role in shaping our students into effective communicators, adept problem-solvers, and skilled decision-makers. Moreover, it instils qualities such as teamwork, empathy, and an understanding of different perspectives, which are crucial for establishing strong and meaningful relationships. Throughout the event, numerous students collaborated closely with our teachers, delving into exploring and enhancing their leadership skills. Witnessing the children's growing confidence over the day was truly inspiring. We anticipate a promising future, with many potential leaders emerging from our exceptionally talented student group.

We look forward to more exciting events throughout the term. Please make sure you keep an eye on the key dates.

Thank you once again for being an essential part of our school community.
