Welcome back to the start of a new school year for our existing families and a special welcome to those who have recently joined us. I hope that you have had an enjoyable and restful break. The students have returned full of energy and are enjoying seeing their friends and making new ones. I have particularly enjoyed hearing about their travels and adventures.
I am delighted to say that they have quickly settled back into the routines of school and are already engaging with the challenging learning planned for the term ahead with smiles on their faces. 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.
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.
On a personal note, I had the opportunity of meeting many of you when I joined the school in May and 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. I look forward to meeting you all in the coming weeks.
