RGS Dubai Exclusive Coffee Morning
It was great to see mums come out in force to safely attend our first education-themed Coffee Morning event since the pandemic, held last week, in association with RGS Guildford Dubai at Polo Club Dubai, in Arabian Ranches.
The March 24th event centred around the exciting news that elite 500-year old British school, The Royal Grammar School, Guildford is opening its doors in the UAE this September, with the creation of RGS Guildford Dubai. Parents came to hear a live Q&A interview with two of the school’s leaders – Craig Lamshed, Founding Principal at RGS Guildford Dubai and Head of Prep Clare Turnbull.
Parents were interested in hearing directly from the school leadership exactly what it means to be a ‘premium school’ and specifically how this would benefit their children. Clare Turnbull talked passionately about how the quality and commitment of the teaching staff, combined with the school’s British curriculum and RGS ethos of getting to know and nurture every child’s individual strengths and challenges, prepares every child to face the future with confidence.
Amongst former pupils of The RGS are famous sporting superstars, olympic athletes, members of English parliament and international government, well-known figures in the world of art, the legal profession, the diplomatic world, finance, leaders in entrepreneurship, various fields of science and the media. Given this rich history of RGS for , she also detailed the RGS methods for fostering and developing “true leadership” in their students, with parents also hearing extracts from a former student about his experiences at RGS as a student.
Both the Founding Principal and the Head of Prep answered parents’ questions about how the school identifies the special qualities and talents of each child, and how extensive (and extremely impressive!) opportunities for extra-curricular activities – including arranging bespoke activities wherever possible – can bring out the best in every child.
The event is part of a policy of “wide open door’ communication with parents about every aspect of their child’s school experience. The event concluded with an extensive networking session, with friends and connections made, questions answered and appointments arranged for more detailed discussions about enrollment.
