A Letter from our Manager of School Operations, Jemma Lewis
Thank you all for your patience and support over these past couple of weeks with school traffic. The first few weeks are always the most challenging with many families adjusting to their new routines. Now that our children have settled, more families are considering the buses. Using the buses not only helps ease congestion but our fleet of buses now uses biofuel which helps our school to reduce our school bus carbon emissions. This week with the continued support from our neighbors ASD we have also been able to trial an alternative exit route for the buses heading on to Sheikh Zayed Road. This new route allows buses to quickly leave the facility and avoiding the traffic on Al Na’ayat Street and the ASD/Saudi German Traffic lights.
Health and safety
Ensuring the Health and Safety of our learning community is everyone's responsibility. As a reminder, if your child is feeling unwell or experiencing any symptoms, please keep your child home.
For reminders on effective hand washing and mask wearing techniques, please watch the below videos from our Health Clinic.
