Ramadan food drive, Spelling competition and Environmental awareness

May 18,2017

The start of Term 3 has been busy with several activities. As part of our Ramadan Food Drive, generous donations were collected by the Windrose Community for those in need. The school administration would like to thank all the parents, students and staff members who supported this initiative.

On another note, Key Stage 1 students completed last week the final round of KS1 Spelling Bee competition. We are proud of the considerable improvement observed in our students’ spelling skills.

Environmental awareness was also on the agenda. This week Dr. Ehab Adly from the United Nations honoured us with a presentation to KS2 & KS3 students about environmental issues. The environmental challenges highlighted in this inspirational talk set the tone for our own Environmental conference. “Protecting our Environment” will be an essential theme of work in the academic curriculum and on the agenda of our school council.

Windrose Academy proudly held its first “Sleep, nutrition and healthy habits” workshop on April 11th 2017. The workshop was destined to Windrose Parents and was animated by our Year 7 students as well as external experts in nutrition and behaviour management.

Year 7 students kicked-off the workshop by presenting the results of a study that they conducted on  the sleeping and nutrition habits of Key Stage 2 students. Then took the time to discuss their findings and recommendations with the audience.

Dr Ghada Dwidar honored us with a very insightful presentation about healthy nutrition, where she shared with us the means to provide children with healthy and tasty meals.

Dr Sama el Batrawy wrapped up the event with an interesting parenting session. Dr Sama presented solutions to certain challenges that parents face with their children and showcased the strategies for a healthy family environment.

Windrose Academy would like to thank Dr Sama, Dr Ghada and the year 7 students for animating such an interesting workshop. A big thank you also for all the parents who took the time to join us during that workshop.

With this event Term 2 of the 2016-2017 academic year comes to an end. Windrose Academy wishes all students, parents and teachers a happy Spring break and see you on May 2nd 2017 for the start of Term 3.
