This weekend, the children of the JESS Choir, Folk Group and two soloists, Nick House and Lavinia Skandalis, performed at the Emirates Dubai Literature Festival at the Inter- Continental Hotel. The Choir performed renditions of Iris and Harmony and the Folk Group played traditional songs as well as a Michael Jackson medley which raised the roof.
We are delighted to announce that JESS, Arabian Ranches Primary are proud winners of the DASSA schools Aquathlon series and they certainly finished the season in style!
As JESS grows as a school, the community gets wider and more densely populated with students, teachers, and other members of the faculty who keep the school functioning behind the scenes. It has become a JESS tradition to host a cricket tournament that encompasses all members of the school. When the tournament was first proposed, cricket was the obvious choice, being a game that embraces all cultures across the JESS community. Today the interest is just as strong, with seven teams arriving at 9:30am on Friday 10th March, set to compete.
The wonderful positive influence that the Emirates Literature Festival has had on the school this week has been visibly and audibly tangible! We are so lucky to live in such a vibrant international city that offers so much.
