To date every student has demonstrated excellence and commitment during this challenging process. Well done and keep it up! We will be celebrating their Educational journey at the Secondary graduation on May 30, 2024 in the presence of the British Ambassador to Kuwait. The entire staff body and I are looking forward to this rewarding ceremony.


Internal Third Term Examination (June 2024):  Our secondary students will soon be sitting their third Term Examinations. The session will start on Sunday June 02, 2024 and end on Thursday June 06, 2024. The Examination time table will be available on May 15, 2024. Clearly this is an important part of achieving the success for which we collectively strive.


Future events: Field trips - Year 7 students (May 14, 2024) and Year 8 & 9 students (May 16, 2024) will be going to the Scientific Centre (Aquarium and Imax).


Our pupils have learned much and shared experiences that will remain in their hearts for years to come. The passion and strength within our community makes our school truly a special place. Let us together, keep on making it a wonderful journey for our pupils.


Yours sincerely,

Dr. Raouf Khodabocus, BSc, MSc, PhD, FCIC (Canada). Assistant General Dir
