Dear SIA Community

What a lovely week we have had and I would like to thank Mr Ahmed and Ms Maha for coming in to see me to discuss the future of FOSIA and our focus on Sustainability, Charity and Mindfulness. We are really keen to grow the FOSIA with the view of getting our parents more involved in enrichment opportunities and raising the awareness of these important areas. Although Mr Andy leads on this we are all excited to be involved as a shared responsibility.

I would like to thank you for such a strong attendance to our ‘Meet and Greets’ and I appreciate the positive feedback. In our secondary meet and greet our learner leadership team took the lead alongside Ms Kush, Mr Donal, Mr Andy and Ms Fareeha in showcasing all the new systems and improvements we are putting in place in secondary as we continue to progress on our HPL journey. I am really enjoying having our amazing learner leaders so involved and I am looking forward to seeing how this wonderful group grows.

We also celebrated gratitude day on Thursday where our learners were able to share what they are grateful for which was refreshing to hear. We had a company come in to deliver a seminar for our Year 12 and 13 classes about studying in universities abroad on Wednesday and it helped the learners to research more into the endless possibilities available to our hard working and resilient learners. We held our house elections to continue adding to our ever-growing learner leadership team on Thursday, it was fantastic to see our learners creating campaign and analysing the needs of their peers. Congratulations to all who were involved. Finally, we also launched the sign up for our ECAs which will offer a range of choices for our learners to further themselves academically, athletically and creatively after school on Mondays. These will begin on the 26th of September.
