JESS celebrates its 40th year!

Thursday, Jun 30, 2016

Progressing from a large apartment in a building near the Dubai Clock Tower back in 1975 with just 17 pupils, to a sought-after, premiere school serving the needs of the English speaking community of Dubai and delivering world class education to over 2000 students from over 70 different countries, this year, we celebrated 40 years of JESS!

To mark this milestone birthday and to reflect upon the ‘legacy of JESS’, we held an exhibition in February and produced a special commemorative yearbook at the end of the year which celebrated 40 years of JESS. Organised by staff, parents and students, the exhibition featured 40 displays to mark the 40 years. The yearbook featured a competition amongst students to produce the most imaginative ‘40’ and many historic photos and memories from the past 40 years.
