Message from the head of the school

 

Welcome Back to School!

On behalf of the Members of the Board, it is our pleasure to extend a warm welcome to SKILLS Community. SKILLS is a school where children are encouraged to value intellectual growth and develop a love of learning with a strong moral compass that will guide them for the rest of their lives.

It is a ‘home away from home’ for all who work, study and spend most of the hours of the day here learning and contributing to the lives of others.

We will work as a team to ensure that we meet the very highest expectations at all times, providing children with the skills of adaptability, the capacity for innovation and the confidence to pursue challenging goals.

Each child’s experience will be enriched by participation in a broad co-curricular programme. The life skills and self-confidence will be developed from participation in sport, music, drama, the Arts and the opportunity for community service. Co-curricular activities will support outstanding academic achievement at all levels and bring balance to the educational experience we offer.

Our mission is to work in partnership with the entire community to ensure that each learner acquires the knowledge, skills and core values necessary to achieve social, academic and personal success in a technologically advanced world.

We are extremely grateful to our committed families and staff who continue to show great flexibility and resilience to ensure that each learner acquires the knowledge, skills and core values necessary to achieve social, academic and personal success in a technologically advanced world.  

Please do remember to contact us if you need any support.  In the meantime, we send our very best wishes for a safe, happy and successful academic year.

Thank you for your support, and have a great school year!

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. Soha Youssef
Vice Chairman/General Director
