Rayyan Report | Monday, 10 February 2020

Dear Parents,

Diversity and inclusion were the themes in school as we celebrated our International Week at Rayyan with a gusto!

We started as we meant to go on with a sensational flag parade which marvellously showcased the nationalities we are proud to have as part of our Rayyan family. The array of national costumes, along with the flowing flags, added a colour and vibrancy to the parade which will be hard to forget.

The assembly on Thursday was an exciting, non-stop, display of performances from all classes; thank you to so many of you for being there to see your child perform on stage. Well done to our Early Years 1 class for performing in front of the school for the very first time! The dances, songs and information served as a reminder that the world is such a remarkably different place, with many customs and cultures. However, the fact that we can celebrate these and embrace these differences also demonstrates how similar we all are. Teaching this to our children is something that the Compass staff feel very strongly about and we believe that being a citizen of the world is as, if not more, vital than any academic skills.

All of this doesn’t happen by mistake, so I would like to thank all of the staff at school: maintenance staff, administration, assistants and teachers all played their role in creating a brilliant week of learning for the children. One person, though, stands out as the orchestrator; many thanks to Mr. Creissen for bringing all of us together to be able to deliver a special event.

On Monday, we held our Term 2 Parent Teacher Consultations. These offer a good opportunity to keep the school-home relationship working effectively and make sure that we are partners in your child’s education. I wish to reiterate, though, that these aren’t the only occasions whereby you can see your child’s class teacher to discuss how they are progressing; please contact the teacher for an appointment at any time, or message through email or Class Dojo if you have questions.

The first week after the break is Sports Week. Every child in the school will have the opportunity to compete in a number of different activities and win points for their house. I am excited by the introduction of house events this year, as the P.E. team look to build on competitive team sports within school. Please see the information sent out regarding when your child will be enjoying their sports day.

On Monday, we have a visiting artist from The Juilliard School,  Josh Palmer, in school to work with all children on their movement skills. Josh joins us due to our collaboration with The Juilliard School in New York and will also take part in sessions with our teachers to further develop their skills.

I hope that you are all enjoying the school break and taking the opportunity to spend quality family time together. School holidays are wonderful times where the children get to see the world in a different light, either through travel or around Qatar. As I strolled through the wonderful Qatar National Library yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised by how many children were there with their families. Whether you are travelling or enjoying the weather here, be safe and read lots!
