I believe my role as an educator is to guide and nurture the next generation to establish skills to achieve health, respect, prosperity and fulfillment. I am passionate about students being empowered to succeed. Newcastle’s purpose is to educate the youth of Egypt to take their productive place as leaders in the global community by offering our learners a comprehensive education from Pre-k to Grade 12. We are a caring community where students’ needs are priority and where tradition, culture and eastern values are respected and encouraged to coexist. Newcastle offers a challenging academic environment emphasizing learning, as well as social and physical growth.
As the new Director of Newcastle, I am delighted that the school values align with my own personal values, including the importance of trust and respect, innovation and a sense of community. I know that the development and future of the school will be significant by building a firm foundation focusing on the quality of school life, especially for the benefit of our learners. Buildings have been renovated and high-quality teachers appointed. The curriculum will continue to be regularly reviewed to ensure that it remains appropriate to the needs of our learners.
In addition the classrooms are well established with ‘interactive boards’ throughout the school; this will allow learners and teachers to fully exploit the very best of modern learning opportunities.
The curriculum emphasizes the acquisition of knowledge, understanding, critical thinking, and problem solving abilities for all students attending our school. We believe, every student is unique and special and that they all have the ability to learn. We also believe that it is our responsibility as educators to nurture and develop every learner to prepare them for life. Learners are continually encouraged to appreciate our diverse community and to care for others by becoming global citizens, and develop a concern and active respect for the environment.
At Newcastle, the educational community strives for excellence by preparing students for learning beyond their school years assisting them to become lifelong learners, as well as helping them to be self-directed, realistic, and responsible decision makers when solving problems that they will encounter in our multicultural, ever-changing World Ultimately, each learner will gain from their life at school according to the effort they apply.
We strongly believe the importance of teachers, parents, and administrators collaborating and communicating openly and frequently. We continually improve the quality of tools of communication, including giving our parents access to an interactive platform where they can strive pertinent information about their children’s academic achievement.
You are encouraged to regularly check our platform and read about our exciting academic and co-curricular activities.
We look forward to serving you and your children over the past coming years. Interested parents are encouraged to contact our school and to ask any questions they may have regarding our school and the programs we offer.
We look forward to meeting you
