Primary Principal Message
Dear Parents/guardians, fellow educators, and amazing students,
This year was an incredible year filled with school spirit, academic growth, and positive attitudes amongst our students and staff. I am honored to be entrusted to lead the Primary section this year, especially since it coincides with the Year of Zayed. A year where we reflect on our father of the nation and what he stands for. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan once said, “He who does not know his past cannot make the best of his present and future, for it is from the past that we learn.” Students in the Primary section embrace this and gain a deeper understanding of the school vision as they grow and mature during their time in the Primary. Our students are truly a ‘generation of heritage guardians and global thinkers’.
I take great pride in the Primary school team who tirelessly ensure that IPS-J is not only a school to our students, but a second home, whereby students are encouraged to take risks, fall, and get right back up again on their journey towards personal excellence and growth. Our dedicated teachers and staff ensure that students’ well-being is of a top priority. Furthermore, our core values of: honesty, innovation, tolerance, respect, resilience, collaboration, and compassion are embedded in their day to day lives and help build their character. I am eager to see the Primary school, and IPS-J continued success. I thank all the parents for their great support this year and am looking forward for many years to come.
“We are IPS-J!”
