Message from the Principal
We have received the comments, not the data as yet, from the parent survey. Of course the comments are anonymous therefore it is not possible for us to reply (nor should it be) to anyone directly. I just wanted to take a few moments to reply in general; firstly with a 'Thank you' to everyone who completed the survey.
There are many, many complimentary and positive comments which are encouraging and lovely to read. Of course there are also a number of suggestions highlighting areas for improvement. We will begin the process of looking at the survey internally and take the most common matters forward to an action plan.
We cannot address every comment, but we will take on board the useful information, feedback and suggestions. When we have the full results of the survey we will publish the key points to our parents.
All the best

I am delighted to be joining the Year 5 team at NAS in August and I am excited by the opportunity to join the school in its infancy and be a part of its development and growing success.
I have always been passionate about teaching, learning from my colleagues and passing on my knowledge to new teachers.
After teaching in my current school for over 8 years I decided it was time for a change and a new challenge.
Originally from Potsdam, Germany, I have called the UAE home for the last four years. I completed my Master’s degree in Second Language Acquisition in Hamburg, Germany with a major in German as a foreign language.
Having taught for four years in the UK, I decided to undertake a new challenge and embark on a career in the UAE.
After graduating with a BA in Applied Languages in French and German from Dublin City University in Ireland, I worked as a Business Analyst for both Microsoft and Intel.

The primary swim squad have started morning training sessions on Sundays and Wednesdays from 07:00-07:30 in preparation for the upcoming swim league gala.
In the first week of the new training schedule more than 40 pupils from Years 2-6 have attended the early morning sessions. With the addition of the morning sessions the primary swim squad now trains four times a week and the pupils are demonstrating excellent team camaraderie and determination to put the NAS Dubai swim squad on the map!
Special thanks to all of the parents who made the early school run this week and a big thank you to Mrs Cooper for getting the Sunday session started promptly at 07:00!
On Tuesday 26th May the Under 11 cricket CCA welcomed Rashid School for Boys to play at NAS for friendly cricket match. After losing the toss, Rashid decided to put NAS into bat.
Everyone batted fabulously well especially Hannah, Riayat, Ben and Levin. The Rashid fielders were particularly strong restricting NAS to a score of 275 for 4 wickets. Rashid started batting well however tight bowling from Finlay, Theo and Michael restricted Rashid to 242 for the loss of 6 wickets.
An excellent win for the cricket CCA and a first taste of competitive cricket for many of the students. The U11 team resumes its league programme on Sunday with a crunch game against Repton.
44 NAS Dubai students have entered the annual UAE Interschool Ski Racing Championships taking place this Saturday at Ski Dubai. We then have a 32 strong team representing the school in a high level ski race fixture against Repton, Kings and JESS on Saturday 6th June.
We would like to wish them all good luck!
