I hope you are keeping well. It is hard to believe that we have already been back at school for nearly 1 month. I wish to congratulate our wonderful children for settling into the routines and staying focused in these very different and sometimes challenging circumstances. It is amazing to see how well and swiftly they have adapted to our virtual learning programme; this has indeed made the start of the year very successful. They must be commended for the resilience they have shown these past few weeks.
I am grateful for the incredible support you as parents show and I want you to know that your efforts are sincerely appreciated. I view you as partners in your child’s learning journey and your input is making a significant impact and difference.
As we embark on this long weekend celebrations, I would like to wish you a wonderful and happy 90th Saudi National Day. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has made great advances over these 90 years. We wish to celebrate these accomplishments and extend our appreciation to the leadership of this great nation we are fortunate to be part of; His Highness, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman. A reminder to practice all the safety protocols so that our children remain safe and are ready to return to school next week for their in-school sessions. Please kindly be extra vigilant during large group gatherings and continue to practice social distancing, wearing masks and sanatising. We do not want to let our guard down as we have all been doing so well.
We will be increasing the in-school sessions from this coming week to just under 3 hours per session so that we can maximise the learning for it to be more beneficial for our students. We may have a maximum of 8 students per session as directed by the ministry. You will receive an email from your child’s class teacher with more information about the groups and timings of the in-school sessions. Please can you ensure that your child wears a mask, this is non-negotiable. No child or parent will be allowed onto the school premises without a mask, this is for all our protection. Please may I kindly ask that you cooperate with Mr. Malik, our school security officer. We kindly request that parents who wait for their child during the in-school sessions remain in the reception area and to please follow the signs for social distancing. We need to limit the movement in the school during these sessions.
Your feedback is very important to us as it helps us to see what is working well but also helps us to work on areas for improvement. Keep communicating, together we will be successful in making our school even greater.
