Update from the Principal.
I hope you are having a great summer and relaxing with family wherever you are.
I thought I would write a very brief update for all parents each week in the lead up to our new school year to keep everyone informed of developments and plans ahead of the new school year. During the academic year, those families who have been with us at Nadeen School will know that each Thursday during the school year, I will write a general update from the school to keep you informed of what is going on and our plans ahead.
First of all, it is extremely exciting! Seeing the building slowly come together is a process that is enjoyed and savoured as this happens only once and it is a privilege to be a part of this. The site tours have continued (More this weekend) and it is wonderful to see the reactions from families as they see the learning spaces and facilities take shape ahead of the new term.
A few general updates below:
- We have said goodbye to our campus in Umm Al Hassam, a very special place that has provided a wonderful environment for so many families over the years, Please click here to read about Saying Goodbye to Umm Al Hassam – July 2023
