Dear SIA Community,
I hope this letter finds you well. As we reflect on the past week at SIA, I am filled with gratitude for the vibrant and engaged community that surrounds us. Our week commenced with a heartwarming assembly dedicated to honouring our learner leaders. It was a privilege to express our gratitude for the exceptional representation of our school at the HPL teacher takeover. To witness the dedication and enthusiasm displayed by our learners is always inspiring.
I had the pleasure of meeting Irum, Muhammed Raza’s mother on Monday. Her kind words about SIA and the positive developments we’ve achieved were truly heartening. It is this kind of feedback that reinforces our commitment to providing the best possible educational experience for our Learners. I am delighted to share that Irum is interested in initiating a book club for parents. This is an excellent opportunity for our community to come together and engage in reading and enriching discussions. If you share this interest, please reach out to our PLO, Ms. Radhika, who will be helping with setting up and facilitating this group.
The development of reading and literacy is such a big focus for us at SIA. In KS2 this week we delved into the captivating stories, about the HPL characters, that some of the Year 4-6 learners have made. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the stories, which not only entertained me but also showed me the creative talent we have here at SIA. It was truly special to witness the enthusiasm, curiosity and creativity of these young readers as they told me the adventures of the characters like, Hardworking Hisham and Creative Carla!
I also had the privilege of participating in the weekly KS1 and KS2 assemblies, celebrating the achievements of our ‘HPL Stars.’ The enthusiasm and accomplishments of our students continue to be a source of pride for the entire SIA community. I eagerly anticipate next week’s assemblies, eager to witness and applaud the ongoing successes of our learners. A thank you goes out to all the parents who actively support their children’s accomplishments by being present at SIA. Your involvement is a crucial element in fostering an environment where our learners can thrive and excel. It is this collaborative spirit that makes being an educator and the Principal of SIA so fulfilling.
In Secondary, we had learners representing the school in the Business Challenge Cup in DWTC last week where they performed brilliantly and put their hard work into action by making real-world applications to their studies. We’ve had our Duke of Edinburgh learners going on adventure to the desert to challenge themselves as part of the silver award. This is something they have been preparing for over the last few weeks and it was great to see their excited faces as they set off.
In closing, I want to express my gratitude for the unwavering support and commitment from each member of the SIA community. Together, we are creating an environment where every learner can reach their full potential. I look forward to the continued growth and success of our school, fuelled by the passion and dedication of our learners, parents, and staff.
