Dear Parents and Friends,
Welcome to our school.
We have had many changes since June. Some colleagues have departed and ,of course, our KG2 students have started a new chapter in their education.
We wish them well.
However, change is a feature of the Middle East for the expatriate community.
We are delighted to have recruited great replacements.
I am Denise Kelleher, the Principal. I am from Ireland and was principal (10 years) of a 450 pupil school with 2 autism classes .
From 1992 to 2003, I taught in The British International School in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. We are delighted to be back in the Middle East, where our 2 children received a fantastic education. Our son is a lawyer in Bahrain.
We have been working very hard with the support of the Al Bateel management team to ensure that the school can develop from a kindergarten to a primary school. We are hoping to hear good news soon concerning the licence for the primary school and a new building. Keep checking this website!
We will also text you if we have any announcements.
We have a very dedicated and caring team of staff and parents. We are privileged that you have entrusted us with the care and education of your children.
We will continue to be an inclusive, child-centred school and hope to live up to our new motto:
‘Together we share, we aspire, we achieve’
Thanks to all who have made us feel so welcome in this new, exciting and challenging adventure.
Denise Kelleher (Principal) September, 2018
