Welcome Message - Primary Department

I am delighted to join a school that has warmly welcomed me from the day I arrived in Doha. Thank you everyone!

As an experienced Deputy Head from an outstanding primary school in London, I have demonstrated a track record of achieving exceptional outcomes in children’s learning. It was accomplished through positive relationships with the students, staff and parents alike.

I am proud to be part of the Ta’allum group which provides a bigger stage for experienced teachers and leaders, offering scope for a brilliant support network. As an accredited leadership facilitator for the Institute of Education, I aim to encourage the growing culture of strong leadership here starting with our boys in year one. This will consequently train them to become the frontrunners in all industries across the globe.

We will not only strive for excellence for our students in English and Mathematics but our aim is to ensure that the children also take pride in their co-curricular activities. My passion lies in the arts and sports which will see our students thrive, being motivated to achieve their artistic and sporting dreams; should that be their desire.

I aim to further promote the Qatari Islamic traditions and values so that all students become confident, respectful and well-rounded individuals. I will be relentless and committed in my approach to delivering the best opportunities for our boys by cultivating their creativity through high-quality teaching and learning.

I greatly look forward to your support and engagement building on the successes already achieved at Al Maha Academy Boys School.
