Rayyan Report | Monday, 7 October 2019

Dear Parents,

With the eyes of the world on Doha for the IAAF World Athletic Championships, at Compass Rayyan our focus was the Personal Goal of respect.

As athletes demonstrate this vital character trait, we celebrated eight students who have exhibited respect over the past five weeks. Staff have been looking for a team of prefects and I am delighted to announce that the following children will be Rayyan’s prefects for 2019-20: Leen and Aya (Year 4), Rehan and Stella (Year 5) and Ramon, Neelam, Aryana and Elisa (Year 6). Congratulations to our prefects! Over the school year, we shall continue to look for those children who demonstrate wonderful leadership skills and welcome them into our prefect team.

On Thursday, 3A showcased their recent learning in a wonderful assembly. As they used technology, song and a clear message to pass on their knowledge, the children recounted how the world used to look in the time of dinosaurs. The catchy Pangea song was accompanied by Zaid on the drums, once again performing fantastically. Well done to 3A for teaching us a mixture of history, science and geography.

Our students weren’t the only performers in school this week, The United States Air Forces Central Command Band (AFCENT Band) wowed us all with their show-stopping collection of modern hits on Tuesday. We believe that the opportunity to see musicians performing to a high standard is a good experience for our children and could inspire those who may be interested in taking their musical talents further. The band wrote to me on Wednesday, praising the behaviour and enthusiasm of our children.

A question I am commonly asked by parents is how to balance the learning of two, or more, languages by the children. The following article (click here) gives an indication of why the teaching and learning of a child’s mother tongue is important in many ways.

On Monday we see the first school trip of the academic year as Year 6 team up with our Themaid campus on a visit to the Sheikh Faisal Museum to explore artefacts and items from previous civilisations.

We also wish our under-9 athletes the best of luck in their athletics meeting this week.

Bait Al Mareefa are in school currently, selling books in both Arabic and English languages. The book fair can be found outside the library from 6:45am to 2:45pm, Sunday to Tuesday.

On Thursday, 2A will be treading the boards for their class assembly. Further ahead, we have Parent Teacher Consultations coming up on the Monday, 14 October, more information to follow.

Have a great week!
