Congratulations to our IAA Hawks - U12 boys for achieving first place at Dubai's MEUC football championship. A big thank you goes to our U11 boys for giving their best during the tournaments.
The boys displayed amazing skills during the matches and brought home lots of medals. They played around 10 matches in 2 days with great sportsmanship and enthusiasm.
We would like to thank the students, their parents and coaches for their support.
11 IAA students from Grades 9 & 11 participated in Toastmasters’ Youth Leadership Program during the past 3 months. Last Saturday, and during the awards ceremony, each student gave a 4-6 minute inspirational speech to a large audience that consisted of parents, IAA staff and members of Toastmasters - Jordan. The speakers were able to unlock their speaking potential and overcome their fear of public speaking. Well done IAA!

The Primary Counselling Team conducted a workshop on Thursday for primary parents entitled “Supporting Your Child Through Crises”.
The workshop provided parents with guidelines and strategies to support their children through traumatic events, such as the ones we witnessed at the beginning of the year. The Counsellors stressed on the importance of trying to keep routines as normal as possible, encouraging children to talk, draw and play as ways to process their intense emotions. For older students they discussed the need to limit the exposure to social media, videos and violent images. The IAA management and staff have been giving support in the classroom in ensuring stability and psychological comfort to all.
