I hope that you have had a restful break and are looking forward to the new academic year ahead. The children have returned excited to see their friends and keen to tell of their travels during the long holiday. Having spoken to many parents on the playground, we also understand how delighted many parents are that school has finally resumed!
A special welcome to the new families and students who have joined us this year, I am certain that you will all quickly make friends and enjoy being part of our fantastic community. In addition to new students starting school, I am delighted to welcome new members of staff to the BIS Abu Dhabi team who all bring passion, enthusiasm and a range of high quality expertise that will strengthen the provision we are able to offer at BIS, Abu Dhabi. I am sure that you will make them all feel very welcome and please take the opportunity to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher on the playground at the start or end of each day.
The children have now been back for a few days and I am delighted with how quickly they have settled into our routines and their learning. As always, the energy and enthusiasm they bring to their lessons is infectious and I know that they will be challenged in their learning during the coming year. There will be an opportunity to meet the team who will be teaching your child next week at one of the information evenings planned. I do hope that you will be able to attend.
I look forward to meeting and working with you in the future in order to ensure the highest quality learning experiences for all of your children.
My best wishes,
