“Everybody looks forward to their senior year— and now that we’ve finally arrived it feels surreal. Our high school days are over, they have come to pass. It’s time to look towards the future that gleams with hope and opportunity. With perseverance and hard work anything can be done, high school is often considered a mixed experience. Some people love it, some people hate it but one thing is for sure— none of us can wait to graduate!”
Our graduating class:
Class of 2014
Maryam Rashid, Tara Mousavi, Dana Osman, Yasmine Kayed and Hana Al-Awadhi.

Dr. Olga, our school doctor, gave an interesting and enriched lecture on prevention of diseases by simple techniques. She displayed various types of fruits which prevent constipation. She also demonstrated simple breathing exercises and yoga to relieve anxiety and improve blood circulation. The interactive section afterwards gave an excellent opportunity to clear their doubts.
Prevention is better than cure. Knowing how to eat prevents a lot of diseases. It’s not a temporary diet, but a lifelong healthy food habit. We need our younger generation to be healthy. To relieve stress you don’t need to take antidepressants, Just make happy breathing exercises!
