Principal’s Newsletter – End of Year 2018

“There is real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment” – Norman Vincent Peale

The academic year 2017-18 witnessed a significant milestone being commemorated in Dubai Gem Private School. The school celebrated its forty-fifth anniversary in January 2018. The entire school community enthusiastically participated in a number of initiatives that were implemented to make this academic year special.  The forty-fifth anniversary was the theme for all the initiatives that were organized – from the StarNite Film Festival to the Mother’s Day Concert, Dubai Gem Dazzles and the Annual Carnival. The Year Book is an anniversary special and will depict the significant milestones achieved by the school over the past 45 years.

It is extremely gratifying that the annual inspection has recognized and appreciated the efforts made by the school to provide our students with a range of opportunities that reflect and validate our vision and mission statement. The DSIB Inspection Report 2018 has identified our core strength as:

  • Students’ well-developed personal and social responsibility in all key stages, ensuring that they become caring members of society
  • Students’ strong work ethic and dedication to their education, contributing to positive outcomes, particularly in external examinations in the Secondary and post-16 phases
  • The curriculum design in the upper phases, enabling students to pursue a range of interests into further education and careers
  • The very good outcomes in Secondary and Post-16 Mathematics and Science lessons

An important goal our staff worked on throughout the school year was to implement the National Agenda criteria across the school. Grade Level Teams, Key Stage 1 through Key Stage 3 collaborated to plan and create strategies to meet National Agenda criteria and modify curriculum to prepare our students to meet with PISA and TIMSS targets. This effort will continue next year and beyond and will have a positive impact on improving learning opportunities for our students.

I would like to thank parents for their generosity in supporting all our community service endeavours and look forward to further developing and strengthening these initiatives that are our core values.  Management will continue to identify and develop strategies to take the school forward and achieve the targets that are identified not only by KHDA but also by the recommendations made by the entire school community. The suggestion made by parents, teachers and students are invaluable in planning strategies for the next academic year.

DGPS is bidding farewell to a few of its long-serving and dedicated staff that is leaving us and will not be returning in the next academic year. Mrs. Elizabeth George has not only taught Sociology for over fourteen years but has been a confidante and patient counsel to our students, guiding them through their emotional upheavals throughout their high-school years. Mrs. Anita Tom, Secondary School Math coordinator, Mrs. Mini Sebastian Physics teacher, Secondary, Mrs.  Susan Sateesh, English teacher Secondary are all relocating to India. Mrs. Kavita Wadhwa, HOD Commerce is retiring to pursue her multi-faceted talents of becoming an entrepreneur and an author. Mrs. Anjum Khalid, Islamic Studies teacher is retiring to spend time travelling and bonding with her grandchild. Mrs Mahua Paul, Geography teacher and EEG Coordinator is pursuing her Master’s Degree in Education and is taking a break from her teaching responsibilities. Mrs. Roselyn Victor, English teacher Primary, is also relocating to India with family commitments. Mr. Charles music teacher, primary is relocating to India and Mrs Analisa music teacher in the primary is taking a break from teaching to take care of personal commitments. Ms Sohaila Yusuf, LSA is leaving to get married. Also leaving us after a short stint at DGPS are Mrs. Ravinder Kaur; Mrs. Neelam Solomon, Mrs. Gagandeep and Mrs. Deepti. Our best wishes to all of them in their future endeavours.

The SEND department has been the focus of development as well. With the appointment of Mrs. Bhuwana Ramakrishnan as SENDCO and Mrs. Seema Mukesh as Inclusion Governor, the department has already begun to see the impact of training and developing an effective department.

“Excellence can be attained if you care more than others think it wise, risk more than others think is safe, dream more than others think it practical, and expect more than others think it possible!

Summer is a very special time for children and is the source of many happy memories. I hope that you and your children enjoy many opportunities to have fun as a family in the weeks ahead. I look forward to welcoming you in September.

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.
