  • Ramadan Kareem

Dear Parents,

I hope you received our letter via text message informing you of our plans for Ramadan.  If you did not receive the text, please inform the school as your contact details may be out of date.  May I stress that attendance is vital at this time, as it is all year round.  Any time absent from school has a big impact on learning.

This will be my first year in Qatar for Ramadan and I am looking forward to the thoughts generated by all our students.  Last week, our guest from the Islamic Cultural Centre spoke to the students about Ramadan and the expectations for our Muslim students. What struck me was the link between the objectives of Ramadan and the objectives of our school.  At school, we have the RESPECT agenda where we model and expect certain character traits to be grown:

  • Responsibility
  • Equality
  • Sensitivity
  • Pride in the school
  • Encourage each other
  • Care for each other
  • Think before you act

The emphasis about reflection and change for the better is something that I believe is key to education.  This may be academic but is also how we conduct ourselves.  I will be interested to continue this discussion with students during Ramadan.

We held another celebration meeting on Thursday - the Global Campus Visual Arts competition. Students from all 55 Nord Anglia schools worldwide participated in a creative competition against each other.   The task was to illustrate the story of winning entries from the Creative Writing Competition.  Isabel Seesarun and Leah Govender are our winners in Secondary and Flora Palosse has been selected to feature in the Global Campus Anthology. Well done to all those involved.

Have a great week!

Kind Regards,

Tom Douch
