April 2024 Newsletter


Dear Parents and Caregivers,

I would like to wish all our Quest School family Eid Mubarak! It has been lovely to see how our students got into the spirit of the holy month of Ramadan and supported the different events happening throughout the school these past few weeks. Being part of an international community brings a rich diversity of backgrounds and experiences. I love that at Quest School we celebrate this diversity and enjoy seeing how our students respect and care about traditions from varied cultures.

Students at the school have taught me that Ramadan is a time to reflect on the plight of the less fortunate and those facing challenges worldwide. It supports unity, builds stronger relationships, and encourages selfless actions. I am proud to see how involved our students have been this past month to raise money and gather food items for different charity groups and give back to the community.

For those that observe Eid, I hope this special occasion brings peace, and happiness to you and your family. I would also like to wish everyone a fantastic holiday and hope you enjoy the break. I look forward to seeing everyone in Term 3.

Student Council Ramadan Food Drive
Thank you for all your kind donations. All donations have now been packed into boxes and have been given to the Tree of Life Charity.

Spring Fair
I would like to thank the school community for the amazing turn out at the Spring Fair. Quest School saw over 1000 visitors to our first community-wide event which donated all proceeds to the Royal Humanitarian Foundation. The day was a huge hit not only for our families but also for those visiting the school, with many coming to me to say it was one of the best fairs they have been to on the island. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the PTA members for their hard work in organizing such a fantastic event!
