We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.

About us

SKILLS National School offers the National Curriculum in English under the umbrella of Ministry of Education (M.O.E). SKILLS National School is adopting the new system which aims to move away from the superficial approach to understanding and indoctrination to the development of important skills, problem solving and creativity.
The new education system 2.0 (which applies to Kindergarten classes until the fourth grade), and the use of modern technology in the Preparatory and Secondary Stages, as well as blended education, are future systems and are not connected with the Corona Pandemic.
The New Education 2.0 project is paying attention to learning systems and outcomes, and improving the quality of the research system. It aims at education for life, not for exams, and that lifelong learning is based on competence and acquiring skills for problem-solving, creativity and discussion; i.e. that the goals of the new education system will be “know, work, live, and be”.
The essence of development in the secondary stage revolves around changing the quality of questions to measure the degrees of understanding the learning outcomes.

Kindergarten (KG 1 – KG 2)

Kindergarten is a stage in which children grow socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Children’s success is based on involvement and enthusiasm that makes them aware of the world. We believe that teaching through innovative play encourages critical thinking abilities and stimulates natural curiosity.


SKILLS track students’ progress and adopt various teaching methods to ensure that all students achieve their utmost success. We are devoted to motivate our students to read as it is an essential part in learning a language. Further, we supply each student with the required materials to attain highest levels of Academic Proficiency. At the End of year six students set for an achievement exam under the governance of the Ministry of Education (M.O.E).


SKILLS provides the essential learning experiences to qualify students to use their potentials at their best. We prepare the suitable environment for students to prosper their thinking abilities and interests. Our teachers use the most advanced teaching methods that are proven to be the most sufficient. They work hard to strengthen students’ creative thinking abilities, apprehension and self-confidence.


Our Thanaweya Amma program qualifies students for the forward college stage, enabling them to become successful in their future careers and creative thinking. First Secondary 10 Students study a range of subjects to help them decide which groups of subjects they will choose leading them to Grade 11 and 12 for the High Stakes exams (Thanaweya Amma)

Moodle stands for "Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment". We are adopting Moodle as our learning management system (LMS). Moodle is software used to administer learning and training of various subjects to one or more learners. Moodle delivers a powerful set of learner-centric tools and collaborative learning environments that empower both teaching and learning. It is web-based and features a mobile-compatible interface, making it accessible from anywhere in the world across different web browsers or devices. Through Moodle, you will be able to access online and in one location all the content, materials, and instructions that are delivered in the classroom through the face to face interaction. Moodle will support pupils’ learning through the provision of resources and online learning activities. Moodle will enable Parents to follow up what has been covered at school on daily basis. Each Student will be given one account (username & Password) that will be used for all LMS activities and will be used through the following:

Microsoft Teams

If we are obliged to teach online, Microsoft Teams will be our tool for communication with students. For online classroom meetings that include the teacher and students interaction, we will use Microsoft Teams. It effectively holds classroom meetings, collaborate on virtual whiteboards, and share documents. With assignments, conversations, files, notes, and video calls all pulled together, Teams is a great all-in-one hub for the collaborative classroom. In addition to the content, materials, and instructions, Teams provides opportunities for: student/teacher interaction, student/student interaction, and most likely student/content interaction.
