It was wonderful to see so many parents at this morning’s School in Action. We hope our parents enjoyed immersing themselves in learning. The children were extremely excited to see you all today.
Continuing with the theme of learning. Thank you to all parents who attended our recent parent workshops. We have many dedicated parents at our school who are committed to ensuring that their child will achieve to the best of their ability. By attending such events as our workshops, you are equipping yourself with the knowledge and skills to support your child. Research shows that children whose parents are very much visible in school are the children who are most likely to succeed. Thank you to all the Middle Leaders who led the informative workshops. We hope parents have found the resources distributed during the mornings useful and are able to utilise them at home. We have a few plans to support our working parents who are unable to attend workshops. More information will follow.
Supportive parents also attended our Class Representatives meeting on Tuesday where we discussed the role. It was also an opportunity for me to meet with parents to talk about developments within the school, forthcoming events and gauge how parents are feeling. It is always appreciated when we hear positive comments, with our parents very much recognising the school’s strengths and appreciating the quality of teaching and learning at the school. Whilst I met with the Class Representatives, Sarah Reid, Deputy Headteacher and Sammie Lyon, Head of PE, met with an FCS (Friends of Compass) working party to discuss our forthcoming Parents’ Health and Fitness morning. The team has now arranged for classes to take place during the morning for those parents who have always wanted to try yoga or another exercise class. For those parents who don’t want to partake in the classes, then there will be numerous other areas to peruse. We plan to display examples of healthy snacks, there will be an opportunity to find out more about first aid or simply enjoy a manicure, pedicure or massage. The ladies have also organised prizes for parents who attend the morning. These have been donated by local companies. We look forward to seeing as many of our parents as possible at this event. Thank you to the team for all their hard work. More information will follow.
We were extremely proud of the school’s Year 2 and Year 3 football teams who competed against 40 schools at Aspire on Tuesday. The teams brought home gold and silver medals. Well done, to all the boys who didn’t only impress the other Doha schools with their sporting abilities but also their exceptional behaviour and good manners.
Parents, we still need your help with our parent survey. Less than 50% of our parents have completed the survey. We appreciate your feedback and very much listen to your thoughts. Please find ten minutes in your day to complete the survey.
