Our school also strives to have all stakeholders especially parents actively involved in students’ learning and character developmentjourney. We work hard to create a positive holistic atmosphere by celebrating cultural diversity and promoting the school spirit that values accomplishment, integrity and respect.

My commitment to our school is to implement student centered approach and consider the learner the heart and the main purpose of our school. In order to enhance high standards of teaching to facilitate outstanding learning, the school will create a continuous professional development program that is led by heads of the department to drive the raising of the standards of teaching in the classroom.

Finally; teaching is the profession of the prophets and it needs patience, dedication and ongoing transformation and professional development to enhance our effectiveness and increase students’ attainment.
