University Internship for SES Biologists:

During the winter break, a group of 12 SES biologists participated in an internship program offered by The Department of Applied Biology / Biotechnology Program at the College of Sciences / University of Sharjah. The internship covered a wide range of biological experiments that reinforce our GCSE and A level Biology curriculum.

This was an excellent opportunity for students to develop scientific skills outside of their normal school environment, to network and to meet other keen students and working professionals in the field of Biology.

Congratulations to the students who participated on their initiative and dedication.

Shout out to our Islamic studies teachers at #SES. Today they are teaching Key stage 3. Here is a little insight into lessons have been going on. Year 7 have been learning about full ablution and Ghusl (purification bath).
Year 8 have been studying about prayers for certain occasions. Year 9 topics include farewell Hajj and the death of the Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings be upon him.

This week began with International Teachers' Day, which was celebrated on 5th October. SES thanks parents and students for all the acknowledgements of the occasion; their gratitude to teaching staff is appreciated and valued.

Sharjah Educational Council (SEC) sent a presentation gift to the school, to mark the occasion, which was raffled among staff. The winner was Ms Hazel O'Brien, Year 3 teacher, who is pictured accepting her prize from Mr. Nolan. She represents all staff in receiving the award.

Many thanks to SEC for their thoughtful gesture.

The Primary School is delighted to share that Mia March and Waleed Qureshi were successful in their application and were selected as Student Leaders for this academic year.
Today they met with Mr Nolan and were congratulated on their achievement. Mr Nolan listened as they detailed items that they would like to develop over the course of this year!
Looking after our planet and being a supportive friend were key areas they would like to see developed across our school.

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!
