Weekly Chat

This past weekend, my daughter who attends middle school at UAS, participated in the Model of United Nations conference.  It was an amazing opportunity where she was able to take hold of her own learning by researching and debating a topic with other students.  It really made me start thinking about student agency which is a big part of the PYP.  Student agency is the belief that students should be the “drivers” of their own learning. This approach allows students to really own their learning while teaching them critical thinking skills they can use throughout their life.  This is an instructional approach we are striving for at UAS.  You can learn more about student agency here.

Announcements

It has been announced by the UAE Cabinet that National Day celebrations will take place on Wednesday 28 November and Commemoration Day on Thursday 29 November.

Commemoration Day will see the UAE flag raised at half mast at 8:00am, and a minute of silence at 11:30am, followed by the raising of the UAE flag and the national anthem. Please make the necessary arrangements to mark this day at your school. Thank you.
