Dear Parents,

Welcome back to second half of Term 1. I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday and managed to spend time with the family.

It was fantastic to see so many families at the Al Sharq Family Barbecue. We sold over 200 tickets for the event across our three campuses and Rayyan Campus was very well represented. A huge thank you goes to our Friends of Compass School group for organising and coordinating the event and we look forward to many more successful community events in the future.

This week we have a Visiting Team from QNSA in school as part of a 5 day review of Rayyan Campus. They are reviewing data and information as part of an accreditation process which we applied for earlier this year. The feedback and outcome will be communicated in due course.

Last week our Year 3 to year 6 Athletics Teams competed in the QPPSSA tournaments at Park House School and Newton School. We are waiting on the final results but our teams represented the school well and were a credit to us. Well done!

Thank you to the many parents who came along to the ‘Drop in for Coffee’ session. It is always good to get feedback on improvements and suggestions for further development.

Over the holiday period, we enlarged the Year 1B classroom to give the children more learning space and made further improvements to flooring and the buildings in school. We now plan to improve the external parking areas and pathways to make them more accessible to parents and children. We will begin at the front of the school, so some areas will be cordoned off for a short time. During this period, please park at the back of the school. Separate notices will be sent.

Last week, our school assembly focused on ‘Good Manners’. The Head Boy and Girl and Student Council led the assembly, following feedback from their classes on what we want to see in our school. There were many good examples in classes this week and those children were chosen as certificate winners. Good manners and respect for others will be monitored in the coming weeks and throughout the year.

The Y1 Bilingual class started a new adventure with the IPC unit called “Time Travellers”. This unit is not only an opportunity to travel back to the past but is an opportunity to think about the future.

‘For our Entry Point , we began by designing a time machine that transported us into various classes in the school where we found old objects. We will soon take on the archaeologist role and become detectives to find out what the objects were used for, by asking students and teachers about them.

Our machine also transported us into the future for a computing lesson: we discovered how to age 40 years with an App called Oldify. We even saw what the teacher will look like in a few years.  We have also started to record some words on the computer, inspired by our drawings of what the future could be.

At the start of the week, Year 2Bilingual had a think about what animals need to survive. They have recreated some habitats to help them think further about the subject. This has allowed them to see the vocabulary in French as well as in English. It is fantastic to hear the class speak in different languages.  Soon we are going outside to explore the fauna and flora of the school and will discover what is living around us.

Later in the week, Year 2A have their assembly and preparations are well in hand for the annual Rainbow Picnic. We look forward to seeing you there.


Kind regards,

Ann Djedid
