‘Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.’ Anthony J. D'Angelo.
When we have visitors in school they almost always refer to the welcoming nature of our students, staff and families. This was again evident on Saturday, when the school community came together to celebrate our Spring Fete. So much so that one of the vendors, who had participated in a number of Doha school events this year, was compelled to say how much they enjoyed being part of the day.
It was great to see so many families and friends of Compass enjoying such a lovely event. There was much to explore and participate in, from the many arts and craft stalls, the many staff-led games and activities, the fantastic performances from our choirs and bands and the delicious treats served up from the BBQ, waffle grill and our legendary tea and cakes!
Julliard Curriculum Visit
This week we welcomed Liam Day, an international performer, collaborator and teacher with a Masters of Music degree from The Juilliard School. Liam worked with both our Primary and Secondary students through a series of assemblies and workshops centred on music and ensemble performance.
To celebrate World Poetry Day we are hosting a Poetry Recital this Wednesday evening at 5:00pm. Students from Year 1 - 13, teachers and parents will share their love of poetry through a series of performances of original pieces and reciting old favourites. We look forward to seeing many of you there!
Year 4-6 Production
Next week sees the world premiere of our Year 4, 5 & 6 musical production entitled ‘The Dracula Rocks Show’. Seating will be limited so make sure you collect your tickets from the reception. Having seen a sneak peak of a few songs and performances, I know the audience is in for a real treat!
Have a great week,
Jimmy Frawley, Head of Primary
