Friends of SRS
Parental involvement is integral to SRS, helping to engage and support in events that will bring the school and community closer together. The Friends of SRS focus this year has been to organise and run events and activities for families linked to H H Sheikh Hamdan’s Dubai Fitness Challenge. Other activities they keenly support are linked to the school’s drive to support raising awareness of a sustainable environment.
To support students career aspirations and provide work experience we are collaborating with Mott MacDonald, UAE. In their Dubai office, they have diverse range of consultants delivering high profile projects across the world, working to meet some of the world’s greatest challenges. Working with these professionals will provide unique opportunities for our students.
SRS has strong working links and partnerships with University of Birmingham Dubai, University of Wollongong Dubai (UoW), Zayed University and Higher College of Technology – Women’s Campus.
Through our Teacher Training partnerships, we successfully offer placements to trainee teachers across all phases and operate as an ILETS examination centre with the UoW for students in Dubai.
Central to our identity is the thriving ‘Big Family’ concept. The ‘Big Family’ concept is a strong pillar of our identity. Being a very large organisation, it is essential to build a cohesive structure that cements the different parts so that they operate as one whole. As such, all SRS staff, students, and parents are an integral part of the SRS Big Family. Some of the immediate practical implications of this is the typically warm welcome extended to all that join, work with or visit the organisation. The atmosphere is the glue that cements the numerous component parts of this remarkable educational institution.
