As we turn our attentions to the winter break, it is time to reflect on the term that finishes.
Our students have achieved much already this year, from starting examination courses; competing in many competitions & representing the school on the field and on the stage, for example.
Our recent inspection report also celebrated the great results at iGCSE and A Level, as well as our student’s behaviour and attitude to learning, so I look ahead to the future success of all.
Today is a special day of celebration here at the school as we welcomed back a former student, Anita Shishani who is currently studying at NYU Abu Dhabi. Anita sat her A Levels this year at the school and was honoured today by the Principal for gaining the Highest Grade in A Level French, for the entire UAE.
Alongside Anita, Roy Hayyat in Year 11, was given a special award for achieving the Highest Grade in French GCSE in the World! What is more incredible, is that Roy took this a year early having only studied for 1 Year in Year 10.
To be the best in the UAE and the World takes amazing dedication from the students, support from the parents, and commitment from the teachers, and the School was very proud to welcome back Mrs Aston who retired this Summer, who taught both Anita and Roy. To end your career knowing you taught both the highest in the UAE and the World is a momentous occasion for her.
Both students were awarded a commendation certificate from the exam board, the school’s colours in the form of the special achievement tie and the exam boards medal of achievement by the school Principal, Mr Andrew Thomas. Roy was also presented with an Apple Watch from the school.
Andrew Thomas said, “To say I am a proud Principal today, is an understatement. I am in total awe of these students and have the utmost respect and admiration for what they have achieved. These are two very talented students and I know we will hear much more about their successes in the near future. I think it is safe to say that if you study at AAESS you can really become the best in the World! This is an excellent way to finish the first term and I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday”.
