The school has now almost completed this term’s workshops for parents. We hope that parents found the sessions useful and insightful.Thank you to all of our parents who have joined us thus far.
Today, we are hosting this term’s Parent Consultations. This is an important point in the year when parents can find out how well their child has settled in and are informed about personal and academic targets. Following today’s meeting, please keep speaking to the teacher as the partnership between home and school plus a consistency in the way we encourage, motivate and move learning to the next level is of utmost importance.
This week, in Early Years, the children will be finding out about how to care for animals I’m sure the children will have a wonderful time and may also be introduced to a few fluffy little visitors.
As we approach the Half Term Break, the school has been reflecting on recent achievements. One great success has been our student school leadership teams who are now highly visible on campus. Last Thursday, the School Council reburied the time capsule which was initially ‘planted’ on the site of the school’s new pergola. The children performed a special ceremony as the capsule was gently lowered into a section of our environmental garden. The School Council have also been looking at the school’s Behaviour for Learning policy which our students have rewritten using child friendly language. House Captains have also been incredibly busy this half term, collecting and totalling weekly house points which they present at our weekly assembly and update on the school’s House point noticeboard. The school’s library leaders have also been working extremely hard and our playground leaders are now trained and prepared for their new playground duties after half term. The school’s Head Boy and Head Girl are now also firmly established in their new role, in the next few weeks they will begin taking school tours with visiting guests.
Other achievements are in music and the performing arts. The school now has a strong choir who performed and came in 3rd Place at the Qatar National Music Competition. We also have an exciting new guitar group who are preparing for their first performance to the school in December. We are crossing our fingers that we will be ready.
The Friends of Compass School (FCS) are now selling tables for our Table Top sale which will feature at our forthcoming community picnic breakfast. The breakfast will be held on Friday, 10 November. There will be a wide range of fun, exciting activities to engage all age groups. Please keep this date free as we are very much looking forward to seeing as many of our families as possible.
I would like to end this half term’s newsletter by thanking all our parents for their support, encouragement and energy. The school looks forward to continuing this partnership.
Have a wonderful break.
Head of Campus, Gharaffa
