What can happen in a month’s time? Quite a lot.
Our social media followers increased from 580 in January to 1571 mid-February and is still increasing. This has resulted in many more visitors to the Hilton Pearl and we now have an increase from 36 pupils expressing interest in NVIS to 90, and the number is increasing week to week. We are pleased to see pupils from Pre-KG to Grade 7 wanting to come to NVIS from September and we are looking to more than double the current number in the next couple of months. So, please continue to spread the word about NVIS, the most exciting new school to open in Qatar this year!
Staffing and the curriculum
You will be pleased to know that we have already completed our administration and teaching staff recruitment. The teaching team leaders have met over the month, and as a result of these meetings, have designed a very unique eco-curriculum that embraces the American Common Core Standards along with international themes to ensure all pupils are taught the importance of caring for the world around us. We are very excited to launch this and we are positive that your children will truly enjoy their learning experiences at NVIS.
Other update bits …
- Our education license is being reviewed by the MoEHE and we are waiting for the ministry approvals to be finalized. Once that is in place, we will be completing the admissions process. In the meantime, you will soon be sent further information to prepare for the formal registration of your children.
- Our full furniture package has been placed. The classrooms will be quite impressive, and we are confident that the children will agree.
