Head mistress letter

I would like to offer you a warm welcome to the new academic school year. The School is in its 22nd year and this is something we feel very proud of.

My involvement with the school has spanned 13 years during which I have been a secondary English teacher, head of department and the headmistress at the Girls School.

On our website you can find out more information about our school and facilities in a virtual environment. Our involvement with each of our students and our concern for their future are crucial to their overall education. All our students receive strong academic guidance, social conduct as well as being encouraged to question the world around them. If there is one thing which simply cannot be conveyed via the internet, it is the human factor, in other words the excellent qualities of our highly regarded team of staff here at the school.

The ethos at the ELS has always been every child matters. It features at the very heart of the subjects taught and remains foremost in the minds of all the staff. No child is left behind. No child is ignored. Each child is treated as a unique individual.

The school follows its own full and varied curriculum covering all subjects. We try to ensure the children’s minds are stimulated by making all lessons engaging and relevant. We teach the children the importance of a healthy body as well as a healthy mind.

We pride ourselves on our discipline, our children demonstrate exceptional standards of behaviour. We teach our children to respect each other and the wider community.

As we aren’t only interested in academics also we provide our children with different aspects . We started years behind the extra – curricular activities to give the children the opportunity to develop their personalities by participating and acquiring some proficiency that all outside the realm of the normal curriculum of school education.

  1. Education and information about hygiene etiquette and its relation to healthy environment would be given on weekly basis to certain variety of topics such as proper Hygiene when around people, Body, Facial and Dental Hygiene etc….
  2.  Safety – the state of being safe , freedom from the occurrence or risk of injuring, danger or loss. Also the condition of being protected against physical, emotional, psychological, educational or other types or consequences of failure, damage, accidents, harm or any other event which could be considered non- desirable.
  3. Spelling Bee – We used to do English spelling bee years behind but what differs now that we started running a spelling bee competition for French and Arabic language. The goal of the competition is to develop good spelling skills and provide the students with wide range of vocabulary.
  4. Thursday News, the school’s bulletin is published on the school website every week and I urge you to make sure you keep yourself up to date with all that is happening at the ELS.
  5. Please continue to support us in making our motto a reality in the lives of our children.
  6. Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and to wish you good summer holiday. I’m looking forward to greeting your children back to school in September.


Yours sincerely,
Hanaa Riad
Headmistress Girls School
