Tuesday 8th September saw a large and enthusiastic gathering of parents for the Parents' Support Group Coffee Morning. The PSG is a crucial part of Sharjah English School. Being mainly concerned with building community spirit and organizing fund-raising efforts, the group consists of parents who are willing and able to devote some voluntary time to enhance the experience of the children at school – through supporting school events with refreshments, building community spirit, and celebrating diversity with our annual Iftar and other social occasions.
Fundraising efforts in the past year have enabled the purchase of a laser cutter for the Design and Technology department, and supplying IT equipment to support music and composition.
All parents are invited to participate in PSG events; the level of commitment can vary from a few hours a term to getting involved in our big efforts such as 'Winter Fayre.'
You can follow the PSG on their Facebook page. Please see the PSG page on the school website for details of how to get involved.
SES is proud to recognize the achievements of Mr. Toby Oakeley, of our PE department, who recently represented the UAE at international level in Rugby 7s.
This is a huge personal accomplishment for Toby, and provides an inspiration to all our students. Toby, himself as SES alumnus, is a model of the rewards of dedication, discipline and hard work which we promote as values that all our students should aspire to, whether in sport, arts or academic work.
Well done, Toby!
