2018 Introduction Letter

Dear Parents,

It gives me great pleasure to write to you as the new Principal of Multinational School Dhahran and to welcome you to what I am sure will be a very busy, fun and exciting year ahead.

I am joining MNS Dhahran as its new Principal, having spent the last seven years in a range of senior leadership roles in a specialist educational provision and an international school which have developed and changed in order to make remarkable improvements.  The skills and experiences I have acquired whilst working in a range of educational settings have provided my most rewarding and memorable teaching experiences.

I was certain from my first impressions, during my interview, that MNS Dhahran was the perfect choice of school for me as Principal and since arriving in Saudi Arabia, last week, I have been extremely impressed with the school building and staff team I have met thus far.  I am looking forward to working with the whole community in moving MNS Dhrahan towards being an outstanding school that meets individual needs and prepares students personally, socially and academically for a successful future.

I believe MNS Dhahran has many strengths when it was Doha Academy, last year, and I hope to continue to develop the relationships between parents, staff and pupils which are crucial to the success of the school.  By working together, we can ensure children enjoy their time at MNS Dhahran, make progress (in all areas of development) and install the life-long values and skills necessary to be successful citizens and learners.


  • Aspirations •   Well Being        •Access        •Responsibility      • Ethics

I have high expectations of all the children and staff and it is my intention by working together we can make our school the best it can be.

Parents’ Evening:

We will be hosting our first Parents’ Evening of the year on Wednesday 19th September from 2.15pm – 4pm.  Further information about appointments will be sent out nearer the time.

This meeting will provide you with the opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and share in your child’s successes so far.  If I have not had the opportunity to say hello before this, please do come and introduce yourself.

Snacks, lunches and water bottles

Currently, there is no provision onsite to purchase snacks or lunch throughout the day, therefore, please provide your child with healthy snacks and lunch.

The importance of children drinking plenty of water throughout the day is high.  Please ensure your child comes to school each day with a full water bottle to enable them to stay hydrated and active.  We kindly request the bottles to have ‘pop-up’ type lid to avoid spillages and leaks.

Drinks should be water or squash and not fizzy pop.


New parents to the school who registered with the school prior to 14th May 2018 will have their registration fee deducted from the overall fee.

Parents who re-registered their child up to the 20th June 2018 will also have their registration fee deducted from fees.

Fees are required to be paid before your child starts on Sunday 2nd September.  If you have not made this payment already, please contact the school to do so and avoid a late payment fee.


Uniforms are due to be delivered soon and you will be notified as to when you can collect them.  If this is after September 2nd, please ensure your child is wearing the school uniform colours: navy blue or as close to.

Early Finish:

As it is often the first-time children in EYFS have been away from their parents and carers, we wish to support their emotional attachment by staggering their finishing time in the first week.

Sunday – Tuesday: 11am

Wednesday: 12pm

Thursday: usual time of 1.15pm.


I look forward to working closely with you in the future.


Yours faithfully,

Kelly Wilkinson
