A Decade of Memories

Celebrating WSR 10th Anniversary

As WSR reaches its 10th anniversary, it's a time to look back and see how far we've come. Over the years, we've grown, faced challenges, and built friendships that last a lifetime. This milestone is more than just a number—it's a chance to remember all the good times and lessons learned at WSR.

"From the first day we stepped into the classrooms, we were encouraged to dream big and work hard. Our teachers have been our mentors, guiding us through challenges and celebrating our successes. The school's diverse community has taught us the value of inclusivity and respect.

As we celebrate this 10th anniversary, we are reminded of the school plays, the sports days, and all the small moments that have made our school experience so memorable. It's amazing to think about how much we've grown, not just in knowledge, but in character."

Like any stage, school isn't without its challenges that students may face, pushing them to seek solutions and motivating them to adapt to new changes and requirements.

Adds Sadew: "New difficulties in middle school helped me find my hobbies and put my organising skills to the test. The apex was high school, with its wide range of topics and increasing responsibilities. Reflections show me a route of perseverance and self-discovery as I near the end of grade 10. The main pillars of this journey are the knowledge gained, the relationships made, and the personal development. Every step I've taken, from a wide-eyed first grader to a senior in high school, has prepared me for the chapters to come."

And regarding adapting to different cultures, Hanan from ninth grade adds: "Coming from a student who has been in the school for only 4 months, I have recognised how much the school values different nationalities and ensures that no student feels unwelcome. Learning in this school has made me realise the value of good education. The teachers have helped me continuously through all my hardships and boosted my confidence. They made me realise how valuable my culture is."

Adds Rhiannialyn: "Even though I've been in this school for just 7 months, I've learned many new things, not only from the teachers but also from the students. This school has taught me a lot, and one of the most important lessons is respect. I've learned to respect everyone around me, their cultures, and their traditions, no matter what background they come from."

And about her happiness in getting to know new friends, Jumana (grade 6) expresses: "WSR was a great experience and I had lots of fun and learned a lot. I am so happy to be in this school. I made a bunch of new friends and met a lot of amazing people. I went through some hardships, but I learned from them too."

And Seif Elbakry from Grade 7 concludes: "School life is also a time when a student develops friendships and bonds with classmates. These friendships and bonds often last a lifetime."

School is the best place to make new friendships and have exciting experiences. It is where we learn from our mistakes and develop our identities and characters.
