a very warm welcome. As Headteacher, a question I often get asked by parents is actually who the’ typical’ Horizon English School kid is actually. It is one thing I find hard to answer since we personalize each child’s learning experience, so that there’s no’ typical’ Horizon kid. What I could say, is actually that the Headteachers of Dubai’s leading secondary schools always comment that they are able to spot our kids immediately, due to the good attitude of theirs, the ability of theirs to think independently and the good manners of theirs. As a Headteacher – and a father myself – that is nice to hear.
By focusing strictly on the primary years of education, we are able to instill the proper values in the kids of ours from an early age. We take pride in the sports teams of ours and music groups (both of which form a large part of school life), being inclusive, and we make a point of making certain no kid feels left behind.
It is not all serious though – a big part of the way that we learn is actually through fun. Cross-curricular activities are actually a good way to engage our children’s curiosity (recently our FS1 teachers covered footballs in paint, then allowed pupils to roll them down the slides to teach colour recognition, direction and dimension). Creative opportunities like these contribute to the school’s happy environment.
As educators, we also have a responsibility to prepare the kids of ours to be citizens of the future. While we might not understand what the’ jobs of tomorrow’ will be, we strive to equip the kids of ours with a mastery of all types of technology, transforming them into powerful learners, ready for a world that is changing.
The most effective way to experience a school is usually to check out it, and I encourage you to consider joining one of our weekly school tours every Tuesday morning at 8:15am, so that you are able to see our friendly and nurturing atmosphere for yourselves.
I look forward to meeting you then.
With best wishes,
