SIA School Principal - James Batts

Dear SIA Community,

As we continue on our journey towards becoming an HPL school we enjoyed a visit from Ms Carrie Beech this week who always brings a wonderful energy into SIA. I was really pleased with the number of you, our parents, that came into school to listen to Carrie explain further detail about HPL and some top tips on supporting at home. A major highlight was Ms Carrie supporting our Podcast with our learner leaders. They had the chance to sit with her and discuss all things HPL, such as the SIA roadmap, projects they have worked on so far, how HPL has developed them as a person and as a learner and discussed Ms Carries journey into HPL and school development.

Continuing our sporting success at SIA, we have seen our boys compete in the swimming gala at Ajman Academy in the external EISSA league. Our U14 boys came in 1st place which is an excellent achievement, everyone who competed did the school proud. It has been great to see so many additional enrichment activities taking place, giving our learners access to wide opportunities outside of the school curriculum. This has been such a good week with many more exciting events to come.

Our assessment weeks have started in the secondary phase which is a great opportunity for our learners to showcase the progress they have made over the term. This allows us to gauge where they are at in the curriculum so our teachers can get planning those vital next steps for academic improvement. We have been preparing our learners throughout the term to excel in these assessments. Best of luck to everyone in the coming assessment period.

As we approach UAE National day our learners are prepping and practicing songs and dances ready for what no doubt will be some wonderful performances. In Primary the learners have also been learning many facts about the seven Emirates and different buildings in the UAE. FS learners have been building the Burj Khalifa out of many different materials.

Finally, for all those who have access to century tech please do encourage your children to get involved with the winter cup competition starting the 13th November. Points are earned for each nugget completed and we will celebrate the winners at the end of term. Further information will come through on class dojo.

Have a great weekend and remember to complete those nuggets

Take care
