SIA School Principal - James Batts

Dear SIA Community

It all felt so positive in school this week as we said ‘goodbye to face masks and hello to smiles’. When I joined SIA a year ago we started the year on distance learning and spent a good part of the year working through the challenges COVID presented whilst striving to offer the best provision possible for our learners. We have come such a long way in a year and I think we are all excited for what this year has to offer and I for one cant wait to have more enrichment opportunities available.

Our Learner Leaders are really setting the tone across SIA and I have really valued spending time with them this week as they are truly awesome. They have been very busy this week setting up and running our new charity drive for the people affected by the Pakistani Floods. They have been working hard in collaboration with the Pakistani Association Dubai to gather dry goods, blankets, hygiene supplies and monetary donations in order to support those in need. I am very proud of our learners who continue to grow into global citizens, displaying their concern for all members of society.

HPL could be seen and heard where ever you may be heading around school with a highlight being how the HPL language was being developed in so many lessons. In Primary our learners could be heard explaining how they are hardworking and how they can show empathy towards their friends. Learners really understand this language and can relate to being ‘Harry the Hardworking Hedgehog, Ellie the Empathetic Elephant or Alan the Agile Alligator’. I am sure you can imagine the big smile on my face when dropping into these lessons. Such a pleasure and I cant wait for more of the same next week.

Have a wonderful weekend and please do encourage your children to spend some time using literacy planet, bug club and Century tech.
