Rayyan Report | Monday, 25 November 2019

Dear Parents,

What a busy week it has been in Rayyan!

Two assemblies, football tournaments and school trips added to the usual learning and excitement within school.

On Wednesday, our Student Voice demonstrated their amazing knowledge and understanding of the key rights of children, as stated by UNICEF. The assembly highlighted that we are fortunate in our school to have our rights met, whilst also discussing examples of children who are less fortunate. The powerful message that children are our future and that they are important to the world was clearly delivered and received by our students. Over the week, each class worked on designing a poster which focused upon one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. All pupils were able to explain a change that we can make in order to make the world a more sustainable place. Nord Anglia are proud to work in partnership with UNICEF. The following newspaper article underlines Qatar’s commitment to the delivering of these children’s rights too: click here to read.

Class 5A also entertained us with their take on the mythical story of Hercules, on Thursday. A mixture of Talk for Writing and International Primary Curriculum (IPC) led to a riveting script, written by the children, in which the power of description was explored. With the lines being delivered confidently by a variety of mythical and legendary characters, Mrs Anderton was proud of all of 5A.

Morality was our International Primary Curriculum Personal Goal being celebrated this week. Simply put, the choosing of the right path over the wrong, morality is extremely important in everything that we do. The teaching and celebrating of this in school will aid in contributing to members of society who are more aware of their actions and the consequences, and who have the ability to reflect upon behaviours. I was proud to note that the teachers found awarding certificates to only one person difficult, suggesting that we have very moral children at Rayyan. Well done to all winners.

Both Year 1 and Year 6 went on a trip this week. Year 1 were entertained by Qatariah Productions, re-telling the tale of Aladdin and his magical lamp; linking beautifully to their English and IPC learning. Year 6 explored the wonder of electricity by figuring out how it helps to entertain people in a variety of ways in an amusement park. More trips are coming for this calendar year and we are committed to providing at least two per academic year for all children – watch this space for more news!

Well done to our Under 9 and Under 8 boys and girls who participated in this week’s QPPSSA games, they performed admirably throughout and displayed the impeccable behaviour that we expect from all Compass children. This week sees the best of our runners taking on schools from around Qatar in a cross-country event at Doha Golf Club, good luck!

A couple of reminders regarding P.E. and swimming. Earrings should not be worn for P.E. and swimming. If you cannot remove the earrings, please make sure that they are covered in tape before P.E. and swimming. Only studded earrings can be covered. Swimming is a key part of our curriculum and as such all children are expected to swim unless the swimming team are provided with an up to date medical note specifically excusing them. The pool is heated and remains a constant 32 degrees Celsius all year round. As the children bring towels to the pool with them, and the air conditioning is off, no child will feel cold. We shall be contacting parents in the morning if the correct kit isn’t bought in to school.

Have a fantastic week ahead!
