Math Year 8

Welcome to Year 8

Term Three

Ramadan Kareem

Dear students

Happy and a Blessed Ramadan

Remember that Ramadan is much more than just not eating and drinking; it is a time to purify your soul, refocus attention on God, and practice self-discipline and sacrifice. Remember to make peace with those who have wronged you, strengthen ties with family and friends, and stop bad habits, essentially to clean up your lives, your thoughts, and your feelings.

أحبابي الطلاب..... رمضان كريم

تَذكَّروا أنّ رمضان ليس فقط الامتناع عن الطعام والشراب، بل هو الوقت لتَنقِية أرواحكم والاقتراب من الله أكثر، ومحاولة ضبط سلوككم وتَـعلُّم التضحية. تذكَّروا أنْ تتسامحوا مع هؤلاء الذيْنَ أساؤوا إليكم، وأنْ تُقووا علاقاتكم بأُسركم وأصدقائكم، وأن تتركوا العادات السيئة كي تحصلوا على أرواحٍ، وأفكارٍ، ومشاعرَ نقيةٍ وصافية.

Thank you and best wishes,

The Mathematics Department

Announcements



Parent's Evening 15 April 2018

We had our final parent's day. The new procedure of appointments was implemented. Parents had to now sign up and make an appointment with the teachers. It was wonderful to see so many parents caring about their children. This took place from 7:00am till 4:00pm.

We also appreciate those parents who come on a regular basis to express support to the school. As we know, not all parents are able to attend, but we do know that we have all the parents support. So a BIG THANK YOU!

This term is shorter than term 1 and 2. However, we still have much to do. Hang in there because we also know that you are all survivors and overcomers. We encourage you to work hard and smart and remain focused on YOUR success in Year 8.

Assessments

We have done with all assessments for this term. Only the exam needs to be completed.

The end-of-unit exercises , homework and Google Classroom are essential resources for revision. Revision for the exam is a priority. Please attend school regularly.

Secondary Library

Battle of the Books!

This was an exciting event held in the schools library wherein teams of students, ranging form year 4 - 12, test their detailed knowledge of selected books. Teams face-off each other as they compete to win the Ultimate Battle Title. This is an annual event and is organised by the schools librarians and BoB committee. This is a fun and engaging way for students and teachers to get excited about reading while also building confidence and teamwork skills.

Congratulations to all the finalists from Al Khor and Doha campuses. Well done!

Some Good Computer and Online Advice!


  • Practice good password management. ...
  • Never leave your devices unattended.
  • Always be careful when clicking on attachments or links in email.
  • Be conscientious of what you plug in to your computer. Malware can be spread through infected flash drives, external hard drives, and even smartphones.
  • Watch what you’re sharing on social networks. Criminals can befriend you and easily gain access to a shocking amount of information—where you go to school, where you work, when you’re on vacation—that could help them gain access to more valuable data.
