Message from the Principal

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to Al Dhafra Private Schools, Al Ain and welcome to our new and exciting school year!

I arrived in Al Ain towards the end of August having been given the privilege of taking up the position of Principal. The warmth of the welcome shown to me has been enormous and I am looking forward to getting to meet everyone once the term starts. Al Dhafra is clearly a family school and it is in that context that our students grow in confidence, make super progress and achieve the very highest of standards.

Our students are at the heart of everything we do. They are the most important part of the school and they are so clearly supported by both a wonderful parent body and a committed and dedicated professional team of staff.

As a school we are, rightly, proud of our rich history, and I am honoured to have been able to join such a prestigious school. I am most grategul to Ms Margaret, our outgoing Principal, for all of her support, kindness and guidance. I am sure you will join with me in wishing her every happiness in her next adventure.

I would also like to thank the continuing members of our Senior Leadership team; Mrs Hala, Dr Adel, Dr Ehab, and Mr Mahmoud who have kept the school moving forward over the summer holidays and who have already been so very helpful. I am delighted to be able to introduce you to our new members of the Senior Leadership; Mr Greg who arrives from Kuwait to fill a new role as a second Vice Principal, and Ms Deni who joins us from Abu Dhabi as our new Head of Primary. I am sure you will get to know them well over the next few weeks.

The coming year will be one of further innovation; the development of strong literacy skills, creating a vibrant learning environment, and, most importantly, ensuring that all of our students are happy and successful.

AL Dhafra operates an 'open door' policy and you are always welcome to contact us if you have any queries whatsoever. My own email, for your records, is

I wish colleagues, students and parents a blessed and healthy year ahead.

Kind regards,

Mr. Roger
