Holiday Wishes from the School Director
Tomorrow will be the last day of this first term working online under these special circumstances. Children will be away from the screen until the 5th January 2021 and I hope they can relax during that time. I encourage you to tell your child who has external examinations from the UK to continue studying as time flies and it will soon be May and June, the time for external examinations.
The teachers and all staff have shown full commitment and have worked tirelessly during this term, but this would not have been possible without your support and I am grateful for that. Your children have also worked very hard, fully engaged, they have been incredible, and I am very proud of them.
My last letter informed you about the reports and parent/teacher conferences online, which will give you further opportunities to discuss the progress of your child/ren. I do hope you take advantage of the home links you receive weekly on the school portal, each Thursday, outlining what will be covered in all subjects during the following week as well as rewards, attendance, house points and news of that week. You have received also through the same way all the measures we have taken since August 2020 to ensure the health and safety of our KNES community to show you that we are ready for any option that the Ministry will take. We know through the survey we sent that most of the students are looking forward to coming back to school and to study in a normal school environment, safe, healthy and secure.
On behalf of all the staff members and the chairman and myself, I would like to wish all of you a better 2021 year, bright, safe, and healthy. We know that 2020 has been an abnormal and difficult year for all of us, but we have been standing all together and managed to overcome and maintain quality of education for your children. We can ensure you that this will continue. Anyhow, it seems that we are almost at the end of the tunnel and we can see the light in front of us.
Kindest regards to all of you. Happy holidays to all and may I be allowed to wish our Christian Community a Merry Christmas.
Madame Chantal Al-Gharabally
