Deira Private School

Assistant Principal’s Welcome Message

DePS Assistant Principal

Dear Parents,

I would like to introduce myself as the Assistant Principal at Deira Private School. I am delighted and excited to have the opportunity to work with you and nurture your child during their years with us.

I’m originally from Manchester in the UK, I moved to Dubai in 2015 to further progress my career in the education sector. I have done my Cache 5 which is a Leadership Qualification for the Early Years and am currently pursuing Masters in Educational Leadership. I started my career in the UAE at Chubby Cheeks Nursery, first as a Foundation Stage Teacher then as a Nursery Principal for one of our flagship branches for over 5 years.

Over the last two years, I have worked at a well known school in Dubai where I had the opportunity to gain experience as a primary teacher. As part of my job role, I was the leader of the school wellbeing team and one of my greatest passions is to ensure that students in our care are safe, healthy and happy. I was also responsible for planning the interdisciplinary curriculum and implementing effective learning, teaching and assessment strategies.

From the first moment that I entered Deira Private School, I could sense the warmth, community spirit and family feel. As I look forward to meeting our school families, I would like to introduce you to my little family. I am a proud mother to 8 month old Illeana and my husband Ramy is from Egypt. I love meeting and getting to know people from different cultures.

I have a personal passion for dance, drama and theatre. I strongly believe that performing arts give us an opportunity to express ourselves and enhance self esteem, confidence and overall wellbeing. I look forward to developing a strong arts and sports program at our school to ensure holistic development of all children.

I believe in an open door policy and strong communication with all our families. I will be regularly reporting to you about the latest developments at our school and about your child’s learning and progress.

Please do feel free to reach out to me at any point. You are welcome to email me with any questions that you might have. I look forward to get to know your children and yourself further.

Regards,

- Lisa Such
