Digital Update

Apple Teacher

All of our teachers are busy undertaking professional development to complete the Apple Teacher accreditation. Many staff have already achieved this and we are working towards every teacher completing the course.


iPad Covers

Please make sure that your child has an iPad cover, as this reduces the chances of iPads being broken. We can supply a sticker for the iPad cover so it can be identified.

First LEGO League

This term, a number of boys in Grades 5 to 9 will be preparing for the First LEGO League competition, during their weekly ECA. The competition involves the students coding a LEGO MindStorms robot to undertake a number of challenges, and also presenting a solution linked to a problem around water. We will keep you updated about our progress towards the competition.

Introduction of VAT

The UAE VAT will come into effect in the UAE this January. We greatly value the relationship with you and we are reaching out to you to ensure that our business relationship is not hampered in any way upon the introduction of VAT.
