UAE National Day celebration

Dear SIA Community

What a wonderful week at SIA!

Our week started with our national day celebrations with some great performances from our learners showing off our love for the UAE. I was really pleased and thankful to all the parents, Ms Lynn from SPEA, our COO Mr Kumar and his excellency Mr Khalfan Saeed Al Marri for attending and supporting this event. I further have to say thank you to Ms Mouna and the SIA team for planning the celebration and their endless commitment to developing our provision for our learners. A term that a parent used was ‘togetherness’ which I think really does capture our vision as we aim to ‘shine together’ as a learning community.

We also had our staff v learners football game and for the first time ever our teachers have been defeated! Well done to the learners for all their skill and determination to achieve their goal of beating the teachers! It was a really great game. On Wednesday we had Dr Daniella from Lighthouse Arabia, who gave a talk surrounding mental health to our SIA community, it was a great learning experience for all and everyone left with more insight on how to care for their well-being and focus on mindfulness. As previously mentioned developing mindfulness and having a growing focus on well being is very important with supporting our learners to ‘be the best they can be’.

If you are interested in developing mindfulness at home this may be of interest: This website has some good activities that you can click on and follow.
