Welcome from the Principal

Dear Parents,

I hope you have all had a wonderful start to the new year. It has certainly been a busy but pleasing start at SRS after the winter break. This is the time when we expect learning and progress to accelerate after all the foundational work in the first term.

We continue to embed successes achieved in the first term by ensuring that students are focused on learning as soon as they enter any classroom. That said, it is essential that students go to all their lessons on time, including lesson one first thing in the morning. Your continued support in ensuring this happens is greatly appreciated. We are determined to give our students a high-quality learning experience every day and in every lesson.

There have been further interesting events and developments since the start of this term, which are highlighted in the sections below by our leaders in primary and secondary. They serve to show our aim of creating a vibrant school community where building character and creativity sits comfortably alongside our passion for establishing academic excellence. I hope you enjoy reading about these events and take advantage of the invitation we will be sending you to come and discuss the academic progress of your child with their teachers.

As the holy month of Ramadan is starting next week, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our parents and students a spiritually rewarding and peaceful month, full of blessings and quality family time.

Dr. Nasim Butt
RSI Director/Principal
