Message from the Head of School, David Monk World Scholar's Cup

Ramadan Greeting Message Ramadan Kareem to all members of the ISL Qatar Community. While this is a very special time for all of our Muslim families, I hope that we can all recognise that Ramadan is not just about fasting. It is a time in which we can all reflect, and give consideration to the values by which we live our lives. I hope that you have a happy and blessed Ramadan.

Student Absence In order to be ensure that we are being vigilant about the health and safety of our students, we are introducing a system of checking on student absence if we have not been notified of this absence by parents. From Sunday 13 May, if a student is absent from school and we have not received information about this absence, we will send an email to parents at 09:00 am, asking you to contact the school. I am sure that you understand that it is of extreme importance that we are aware of the location of all of our students during the school day. If students don't arrive at school we need to know that they are safe and that they have your permission to be absent. You can contact the school office to notify us of a student absence by phone OR ManageBac (Secondary School only) or email the Homeroom teacher (Primary school). You can contact the School office at the following number: School office: 4433 8600 In the event of an absence that is known in advance i.e. due to unavoidable family or religious commitments, permission for absence should be sought in writing or by email, from the Head of Primary or Secondary.

School Calendar I am very pleased to let you know that the school calendar for the next academic year has been approved by the Ministry of Education. You can find the calendar here.
