“Now we have followed up on stories making the rounds on sure developments bordering on the morals and ethics of among the students beneath our care, who represented the school at the World School games, Dubai between 8 and 14 of March 2022.

Whereas we understand the emotions this has generated, we guarantee the public that our first method as an establishment was to assume parental roles by providing help to these concerned and making certain that nothing affected their senses of esteem.

Nonetheless, after a complete analysis of the state of affairs, we can not assist however categorical how scandalised and distressed we feel as mothers, fathers and instructors with a relationship that holds a direct bearing on the event of these concerned.

The disciplinary motion was in order to not undermine our cohesive tradition as a group of future leaders and committed instructors, however to be assertive in handing down the kind of self-discipline that seeks to appropriate and reform our children, when they stray from the trail of rectitude.

Whereas we hasten to affirm that as an institution that’s managing kids from various backgrounds, we can not lay declare to, or embark on any sense of self-righteousness in our method, however we study and evolve inside the frames of greatest practices each single day.

As such, as we recognise that there’ll always be area for enchancment, we’re due to this fact irrevocably dedicated to re-evaluating our processes to strengthen little one safety protocols, whilst we will depart no stone unturned in ensuring that the sense of the esteem of the kids involved are uncompromisingly preserved.

This was by way of the nostril swab take a look at as according to COVID-19 well being protocols. We belief that this may be verified on the supply offered. To insinuate {that a} being pregnant take a look at was carried out on a scholar, for whatever purpose, therefore, is a highly unfortunate conjecture.

Nonetheless, our processes can be readily opened up for the scrutiny of regulators and stakeholders on the earliest indication of this, to allow the course of scientific or forensic inspections. We’re sure this can lay to relaxation any shred of doubt or hazy optic that the current flurry of actions might need occasioned.

Lastly, we guarantee parents and guardians that we take unequivocal cognisance of the responsibility of care entrusted to us and we might never betray this, as we’re greater than ever resolved to work tougher at keeping and constructing the belief reposed in us.
