December 2023 Newsletter


Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Although December has been a shortened month at school it has been action packed! We had our Years 7&8 assembly, kings and queens’ day, field trips, and astronauts came to visit the school. We also had our winter shoebox appeal, a bookfair and Radio Bahrain came to visit the school to sing ‘6 more sleeps to Santa’ with our students. Please make sure to listen to the morning show on the 19th of December!

For those of you who know me will know I call Bahrain home and December is always my favorite time of year. Although we had a smaller National Day celebration this year, it was lovely to see today how we came together as a school community to show our love for Bahrain.

I would like to wish everyone a fantastic festive season and hope you enjoy the break. Whether you are travelling or staying in Bahrain I would like to wish you a prosperous 2024. I look forward to seeing everyone in the new year.

Start Date for Term 2 and Timings

Students will return to school on Monday, 8th of January as staff will be taking part in CPD on the 7th. Timings for Nursery will change to a 1.15pm finish time and for Reception 2.15pm.

Car park and Drop-off

To accommodate the weather conditions when we experienced the heavy fog last week, we adapted the drop-off format for safety reasons. We had extremely positive feedback this day and have continued with the new drop-off arrangement ever since. After speaking with parents and staff we have decided to continue with this new arrangement where the front portion of the car park is drop-off only. If you have a younger child and wish to come into the building you are still able to park against the wall or near the football pitch.


We understand that there has been low stock of uniforms from suppliers and apologise for any inconvenience caused. We have been told that the House of Uniforms will have everything back in stock by the 20th of December, including Quest School jackets.

Kind regards,
Laura Murray BA, BCA, PGCE, M. Ed.
School Principal
