I am thrilled to be joining you all at ARKIS this year as the new Head of High School. I come to Bahrain from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, where I have been for almost 8 years as the Assistant Head of Secondary in a large British-style international school in the city centre. During my tenure there, I have been in charge of Teaching and Learning across the secondary section, and more recently, Curriculum Development and Innovations. I welcome the challenges of my new role at ARKIS, and am excited to be leading the Senior School into the next phase of its growth and development.
I would like to pay tribute to my predecessor, Ms Mervat Murad, whose guidance of the Senior School has helped to bring ARKIS to the place it is at now. I will be building upon her previous good work.
I would also like to recognise the transformational leadership of ARKIS’s principal, Ms Kate Moskwa. I look forward with enthusiasm to working with her and the other Heads of School.
Lastly, but most certainly not least, I am very much looking forward to engaging with all of you: the High School students, the staff, and the wider ARKIS community. Your growth and success will be my growth and success, and I cannot wait for us to begin!
