Whether you are new to our school or returning after the summer break, we would like to make you familiar with the arrangements for the first day of term on Sunday, 25 August 2019.
The school day, as always, for all secondary students will start at 07:15. Students should be arriving at school no later than 07:10. Please see the attached tutor and rooming guide for the room where your child should report to for form time. They should go to that room for 07:15. There will be members of staff around the school to help your child locate their room. Parents are invited to remain and enjoy a coffee in the Sports Hall from 07:15, there will then be a short welcome presentation from the school leadership team at 07:40 in the Sports Hall.
The first day will ensure we have a smooth start to the year and our high expectations are shared with all students. All children are expected to be wearing full school uniform which includes black shoes (not trainers).
During the Induction Day, your child will:
- Enjoy introductions to fellow students and staff
- Receive a timetable and key passwords. Please ask your child for your Show My Homework access codes
- Review the school’s ‘Be Respectful, be Responsible and be Ready’ behaviour for learning policy
- Begin to consider leadership roles for the forthcoming student elections
- Ensure access to all school systems including Show My Homework
The school day ends at 13:30 and all students must be collected on time by an adult with the campus being clear by 13:45. Students using the bus service will travel as normal from the designated bus collection point at the rear of the school.
We are looking forward to welcoming you and your family to Compass International School Doha for the academic year 2019/20, and I hope you enjoy being part of our community. May I take this opportunity to invite parents to join us for our School in Action – Meet the Tutor event. You will have the opportunity to tour the class rooms and immerse yourself in an educational activity with your child. This will take place on Tuesday 17 September between 07:30 – 09:30 am. There will also be the opportunity to visit and meet your child’s form tutor at the end of the day from 13:30 to 14:30.
Please also see the key dates throughout the year and other important information to ensure that your child is ready from day one and throughout the year. Please ensure you read our email communications for more updates.
