Primary Certificates on website

Each Thursday around 25 of our Primary students receive certificates in our weekly assemblies.  Students and parents can now view and print these by going to the 'Primary' page on this website and then following the link for pupil certificates.

Well done to all our certificate winners.

Welcome to a new school year

I am delighted to welcome staff and students to a new year at RSB.  Our returning staff and students have had a great start to the school year and our new boys and teachers have also quickly become valued members of the school community.

We have many developments and activities planned for the months ahead and I look forward to keeping you up-to-date with life at Rashid School throughout the year.

Fit for life week

This week has seen a wide range of healthy activities in our Primary Section as we focus on health and fitness.  Parents, staff and students have been exercising, running, walking and sharing the best ideas to promote a healthy lifestyle.  The week started and ended to two 'Wake Up, Shake Up' assemblies, organised by PE staff Mr Ben and Mr Dean.

Healthy eating and healthy living are key parts of our school curriculum.

Year 8 tour Dubai

This week our Year 8 students took part in a Dubai travel challenge.  Following clues, groups of students had to show VIP guests round Dubai using public transport.  During the day they used buses, the Metro and water taxis (abras), as well as a good deal of walking.

The day was rounded off with an overnight desert camp, where the boys cooked their own food, talked and relaxed well into the night.  These activities show our students parts of Dubai that many have not visited and it gives them the skills and confidence to use public transport.

 

U-16 Football success

I am delighted to report that our Under-16 football team has had an excellent season and has won the Dubai Schools B League.  The boys have shown determination, a wonderful team ethic and great sportsmanship.

This week they met the winners of the A League in a knock-out cup game, and were unfortunate to lose on penalties, after a very tough game.  However, their PE teacher and coach, Kevin Scorah, was full of praise for their commitment, drive and positive attitude.  Well done, boys.
