Principal’s Welcome

9 September 2021

Dear Parents and Students of Virginia International Private School (VIPS),

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to this new academic year, 2021-2022. This is a very exciting and promising time at VIPs, especially with so many of our students returning to campus for Face-to-Face (FTF) learning. My colleagues and I are passionate about ensuring every student is provided with high-quality learning opportunities, whether learning on campus or remotely. We are proud to see new and returning students alike and eagerly look forward to witnessing, as well as celebrating our students’ success.  

At VIPS, we believe that optimum learning and development takes place in a safe, inspiring, and meaningful environment. Quality learning experiences are an essential element to preparing students to succeed, from Kindergarten and beyond. Our students benefit from positive, interactive, and engaging educational environments to learn and explore. VIPS is committed to ensuring all students have access to excellent learning experiences, resulting in life-long learners who are innovative and creative, prepared to thrive in the UAE and the world over. 

This year we will experience the first graduating class at VIPS – The Class of 2022. In line with our US curriculum standards of learning, the profile of a VIPS graduate establishes a new set of expectations, known as the 5 C’s: critical thinking, creative thinking, communication, collaboration and citizenship. This approach prepares every student with the knowledge and skills needed for success in a global economy. A successful VIPS graduate will:

  • Achieve and apply academic & technical knowledge;
  • Demonstrate workplace skills, qualities, & behaviors;
  • Build connections and value interactions with others as a responsible & responsive citizen;
  • and align knowledge, skills & personal interests with interests with career opportunities.

We look forward to partnering with you as we go from strength to strength. You are encouraged and always welcome to contact us if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns. Should you wish to contact me directly,

I can be reached at: principal@virginiaschool.ae 

Assalalmu alaikum and thank you.
