Off to Dubai tomorrow, to open the sixth form centre at Al Diyafah High School. The new facility is dedicated to the Mother, sadly deceased, of the family who own the School. Winnie would be incredibly proud of what her daughter and son-in-law have made of their project.
There are good families at the heart (right word) of so many schools in the Middle East: dedicated, of high integrity, dogged and diligent. I find them inspiring and it will be an honour to join them tomorrow (Tuesday). You can always be sure of a fabulous ceremony with the students leading the way in song, speech, dedication, theatre and montage.
