We were treated to singing, musical performances and drama pieces from students across Years 7 to 10. The standard of performances was extremely high and everyone involved worked extremely hard to deliver their best. The audience was thoroughly entertained and we look forward to seeing more of Compass’ theatrical skills in term 2.
The following day, our Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award students displayed a very different skill set on their navigation exercise. Working together, they developed their communication and planning skills in what is practice for their final journey in term 2. We wish them all success for the rest of the year.
Later in the week, attention turned to mock examinations in Year 11 which will continue after the break where they will also be joined by Year 13. Their results will be shared in January, after which targets and intervention plans will be written to ensure your child achieves their full potential in the final examinations.
Looking ahead to term 2, details of our many ECAs have will be shared with you and the online sign-up system is will be open from 5th January. Please discuss the options with your child but note that many spaces will fill up quickly.
Finally, we ended the term on a high note today with our Qatar National Day assembly. We enjoyed performances from students, took part in quizzes and displayed our pride by wearing national dress and colours. Thank you to students and staff for their hard work in bringing the event together.
Term 1 is the longest and often busiest in our calendar and we therefore thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation. We look forward to welcoming all students back on Sunday 5 January for Expeditions Week and mock examinations and wish you all a peaceful Winter break.
