Madinat Khalifa Secondary Headlines | Monday 19 March

Dear Parents,

The school was buzzing towards the end of last week with extracurricular offerings.  Years 10 and 11 were preparing all week for expeditions out into the desert for their Duke of Edinburgh awards. In total 45 students took part over three days and two nights camping.  Dr. Warren has reported back that the trip was a success and plans to extend the Duke of Edinburgh award down to year 9 later in the year.

As I type this, the finishing touches are being put in to place for the school production of Beauty and the Beast.  Both the music and art department have been very busy getting the set and sound looking and sounding fantastic.  I hope you have booked your tickets to support the students involved in the production!  Having run for two nights, Monday and Tuesday, the production will then be followed by the joint primary and secondary venture of poetry night on Wednesday.  This week will then end with the celebration of this year’s sporting activities to date at the sports awards this Thursday.

In school, we have been prioritising learning and looking at ways in which the students could be more independent in following the basic rules.  This led me to make the analogy of the school being an airport.  Students have to arrive on time, with the essential equipment and have no distractions during the flight.  I saw some students today had brainstormed what their passport may be and they creatively came up with the following:

Planner

Attitude

School books

Stationary

Priority

Own time

Reading book

Top marks!

Over the next two weeks, we will ensure that the students are fully engaged and prioritising their learning in the run-up to a well-deserved break.
