Dear Parents & Guardians,
Another eventful weekend at IAA!
I would like to congratulate the Dead 2 Red team for achieving first place in their division during the 242km race. Thank you parents, students and staff for supporting the event whose proceeds will go to Al Aman Fund for the future of orphans. This is an exercise to teach our children how to be philanthropic and I encourage you to talk to them about giving and let them see that it is a regular part of our lives.
I would also like to salute the U13 and U14 Football Hawks team for their win in Dubai’s MEUC 2018. A big thank you goes to our supporting parents and coaches, led by Coach Samer Taha whose dedication, belief in the student athletes and hard work surely paid off!
This week is an artistic one in Secondary with our Grade 12 IB students displaying their Visual Arts exhibit today. I urge you to pass by this week to see their wonderful pieces of art, themed “Still Waters Run Deep.” Also this week, Secondary students will take part in the annual secondary production, called “100.”
This busy week will end with an overnight trip for Grade 8 on the beloved Jordan Trail. I believe that by the end of this term, most of our Secondary grades would have been there. It is a great trip to experience Jordan on foot, encounter ancient sites and meet locals who live there.
Finally, I would like to wish Grade 10 and 12 students the best as they start their mock exams next week.
I am available this coming Tuesday, from 8-9am, for the open meeting at my office. Stay connected to the IAA news, events and updates through our social media channels and our IAA mobile application.
Have an enjoyable week.
Hana Kanan Ed.D.
