Dear KG D Parents

I just wanted to share one final message before the summer holiday begins. Firstly, a heartfelt thank you from Ms. Lesley and I for making this year such a happy and wonderful year. Your support from home means so much to us, but especially for your children. It provides them with a warm sense of security. Secondly, we would like to wish you all safe travels and a happy holiday. Inshallah we will see you all at the beginning of our new academic year mid September.

Kind Regards

Thank You

Dear Parents

A huge thank you to all of you for your wonderful support today. Firstly, for attending your child's portfolio sharing day. It was lovely to see parents taking an interest in the work the children have done and also the time you took to comment on their work. The portfolios are a celebration of your child's unique abilities, achievements, and progress. 
Secondly, for the wonderful treats that were brought in to share.
School will continue as normally as possible up until and including June 16 th. On Tuesday June 10th KG D will enjoy a time of swimming with KG A. Boys and Girls will alternate between swimming and the AV room. The following week we plan to go Ten Pin Bowling at the Student Center. Children will be expected to wear P.E. clothes and proper trainers, football shoes with studs are not allowed. Please send in QAR 5 to cover the cost.

Here's wishing everyone a lovely, lovely weekend
Kind Regards
MsJody and Ms Lesley

Celebration Time

As Ramadan will be starting on either June 6th or 7th we will have our Kindergarten end of Year Celebration on Thursday 2nd June at 12.30pm.
This will be a chance for you to come and share some fun and food with us. We’re hoping that as many parents or grandparents can join us.

The children are very excited about this event and will be sharing their portfolios with you. It would be greatly appreciated if each family could provide some treats for us to enjoy on the day. It would be lovely to have a balance of healthy and unhealthy food, savory and sweet food. We will provide water for drinking and vanilla, banana or chocolate milkshakes. Here are some of the ideas the children have shared:

It would be extra special if someone could volunteer to bring a pot of traditional cardamon coffee or karak for the parents to enjoy too.

Kind Regards,
Ms. Jody and Ms. Lesley

WEEK 29, 24 - 28 April 2016

Dear Parents

After today all we have is 34 short days together in KG D! We cannot believe how quickly time has past us by. Firstly, so many thank you's are long over due ... thank you for the support you gave to your children during our assembly. Ms. Lesley and I are so proud of what the children accomplished in the KG D class assembly. They were confident, cooperated well with each other and remembered their parts. The field trip to Lulu was also a huge success. The children had helped to plan an organized excursion. Then there was the Creative Hat day! The children came to school with a fabulous variety of hats and of course had the hats that they had also made at school. A week later was Dad's day. So many of the KG D parents attended this event. It was lovely to see all of you. While the focus was on Dad's and their children, many mum's and some granddad's attended too, making it a wonderful family day. The children were all beyond excited to share their environment and activities with their families. The Arabic book fair was a huge success and so was the bake sale. The support from families was overwhelmingly generous.

When we returned to school we made delicious healthy fruit sticks to snack on.
