Festive Celebrations at Dubai Gem Private School

Principal’s Newsletter – Dec 2018

As the year draws to a close, so does the first term of the 2018-19 academic session.

THE TERM IN REVIEW

The term’s academic programmes across the school provide students at every level with opportunities to pursue their personal academic goals. Our children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 have a continuous assessment procedure in place to monitor progress and attainment. Key Stage 2 and above are assessed by two continuous assessment tests, (Reporting Points) projects (school and home based), class exercises and assignments.

A significant development in teaching and learning in the secondary school was the Math Exhibition which provided students with genuine choice, breadth, rigour and challenges. This represents the first stage of some significant growth and innovation in teaching and learning at Dubai Gem.

I would like to express my appreciation to all those young athletes who represented the school in a number of inter-school competitions, including football, basketball and swimming. While the degree of success varied among year levels, I was thrilled with the level of participation and the overwhelmingly positive attitude displayed by players and coaches. I believe our sports programme overall and the students’ attitude and commitment are commendable. The implementation of the Dubai Fitness Challenge across the school community was an opportunity for the Senior Prefects to understand and appreciate the importance of planning, collaboration, flexibility, and creative solutions to plan and sustain awareness and enthusiasm over the month-long programme. The enjoyment, camaraderie and school spirit generated is an invaluable feature of our co‐curricular offerings.

Various debating teams have had superb success this term too. Our students have participated in and won a number of awards in the Model United Nations conducted by a number of schools across the region. Our talented and enthusiastic students Neel Dadlani and Aditya Ashok have successfully launched the first Dubai Gem MUN club and are all set to conduct the first DGPSMUN in February 2019. This is a tremendous initiative and a wonderful opportunity for students across the school to develop their skills and talents. TEDxYouth @ DGPS was another programme conducted which was a result of the hard work and determination displayed by our student organizers and hosts, Vimal Raj and Richard Sunil.

The morning assemblies in the Primary School are always a highlight of my week. Teachers and students have enjoyed the presentations. Parents have welcomed the opportunity to witness and participate in the preparation of these presentations. I am confident that this collaborative effort to enhance the learning experience will grow from strength to strength.
Our Inclusion Team headed by Ms. Bhuvana Ramakrishnan (SENDCO) and supported by the Primary School Counsellor, Ms. Bhawna Goel and the Secondary School Counsellor Ms. Charlotte Dias have planned and implemented a range of strategies and initiatives to provide all students with opportunities to share their concerns and difficulties and provide the support and guidance needed. The Inclusion Team is committed to the core values of the school which believes in respect for the individual and equal opportunity to succeed.

It is a very busy and stressful time of the year for our A level students. Enthusiasm, excitement, anxiety and apprehension along with a fierce determination to be accepted in some of the best universities across the globe results in a frenzy of preparation – Recommendation letters, personal statements, preparing for interviews, keeping up with the day to day demands of school and meeting deadlines can be overwhelming. Whether our Year 13 students’ next destination is to Oxford, Cambridge, UCLA or UFT, we value each student equally and make sure we do everything to support their aspirations and guide them through university applications.

Five of our students have applied for Oxbridge in 2018 and two have been called for interviews. Four students have also been called for interviews to various medical colleges in UK. Our best wishes to all our students. I am confident that our students will be accepted into programmes of their choice and transition successfully into their career paths.

As the first term of the academic year 2018-19 draws to a close I’d like to acknowledge the work done by so very many of our students, staff and parents in our school community and wish everybody a safe, happy and restful holiday break.
We look forward to welcoming our students back on the first day of the new term, Sunday 6th January 2019.

We at Dubai Gem Private School believe that every child is unique and deserves the best start in life. Children develop and learn fastest in their first years of life. In order to foster this, Dubai Gem  provides a stimulating curriculum and environment to ensure that your child has every opportunity to explore, share experiences and learn basic skills. The Foundation Stage Curriculum begins in Kindergarten and is completed by the end of FS2. There are 7 areas of learning and development in the early years setting. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.

The Primary School  is a thriving, happy place where children from many cultural backgrounds are encouraged to work together and “Strive for Excellence”. Our aim is for each individual to attain their best by providing children with a holistic education based on the latest developments in the UK National Curriculum 2014, tailored so that our multi-national students can thrive. We recognise that children have individual learning needs and therefore ensure that each child has an appropriate level of work to challenge them to the best of their capabilities.

The aim of our curriculum is to provide a challenging course of study with high standards that will make the students responsible learners who can not only work collaboratively, but also be accountable for their own academic and developmental progress. Students will graduate as lifelong learners who will make valuable contributions to society. The graduates will possess the necessary skills and knowledge to empower their success in our diverse and interdependent world. Students in Year 7 and Year 8 follow a common curriculum designed to provide a broad and balanced knowledge base and learning skills appropriate to high achieving students. In the year 7 & 8, students choose one language (French, Hindi or Urdu). In addition to the full range of National Curriculum subjects, students study PSHE, Art and Design and Technology.
