Message from the New Principal

New RSB Principal

Dear Parent/Carer

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you as the newly appointed Principal of Rashid School for Boys.

During my career in Education spanning more than 20 years, I have been a Teacher, a Teacher Trainer, an Inspector and a Principal of both Primary and Secondary schools. Based on these experiences in school improvement, I feel that Rashid School has enormous potential and all the key prerequisites for our coming success.

This makes me extremely excited about leading the school in its next chapter of development. RSB has a history of excellence at the highest levels of UAE society, so I am determined that the school now builds on that legacy. My aim is to make Rashid School the school of choice for Emirati Nationals in Dubai.

This will require us to build on the great work done previously by Mr Glyn Kilsby. As such, my expectations from the students in terms of their achievement and behaviour are very high. To begin with, I expect all members of the school to always uphold our three key values at RSB:

  • Always Learning,
  • Ready for Leadership
  • Kindness and Respect.

It is important that we are ambitious and be willing to embrace higher standards set this year. Your input and opinion regarding new ideas and changes will be greatly appreciated and help us have a more collective approach in this new phase for Rashid School. I would also appreciate if you could support and promote these changes with your children and the greater community when they are introduced.

To facilitate this partnership between us, I will be holding a number of sessions over the next term to provide opportunities to meet and discuss your views. These will be announced by SMS and the school website.

Please rest assured that I have made a firm commitment to improve this school. I will be relentless with reminding all students, staff and parents about our aspirations until we achieve our ambitions. I feel very privileged to be associated with this historic school and will do my utmost to fulfil the responsibility entrusted to me.

I wish your children the best of success this year and look forward to working with you.

Sincere regards
