A Message from the Director

Dear IAA Community,

I look forward to meeting prospective parents this afternoon during the Information Day and I cannot wait to share our story with them. Our vision of providing a unique educational experience has unfolded into a stunning album of accomplishments. Just looking back at the past four months, and since the start of our academic year, I clearly see our holistic approach to education.  The link https://youtu.be/tv4R0b6Tuws speaks louder than words!

This week, I’MUN kicks off at IAA with over 400 students from nine different schools. The event is under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah and will take place from November 23-25. Our guest speaker this year is Ms Sara Ferrer Olivella, UNDP’s Country Director, who will inspire our students as they debate the theme “Greed For Glory?” It is worthy noting that the first Model United Nations was held in St. Lawrence University, New York in 1949. Since then, this conference has become an annual one and has grown rapidly across schools in the Middle East as an extracurricular activity that equips our students with leadership and communication skills as well as learning about the world in this era of globalisation.

I would like to thank our Library team for their #choosekind campaign and I urge all parents to talk about acts of kindness with their children and encourage them to seek opportunities every day in order to create a positive impact on someone’s life.

Finally, I am available this Tuesday from 8-9am for parents who wish to see me.



Have a great week.

Hana Kanan, Ed.D.
