KHDA Visit at DISD

Herzlich willkommen! On September 8th, Dr. Abulla Al Karam paid a visit to the German International School Dubai to get an impression on how the school has started into the new academic year in compliance with the Covid 19 regulations.

6th grader Jamila greeted Dr. Al Karam with a poem in Arabic. Then he met grade 1 student Zeina and learned about the German tradition that first graders bring a colorful decorated cardboard cone filled with school material and delicious treats to their first day at school.

On the tour through the school building Principal Michael Lummel and Head of Primary School Inga Rehbein explained how the school manages the hybrid teaching with webcams. Dr. Al Karam greeted the students in distance learning at home, who were connected to their class at school via Zoom.

In the Kindergarten, the little ones showed how you can have fun and an active play time while keeping a safe distance. Deputy Head of Kindergarten Julia Badrakhan explained how they have changed the educational concept to increase the safety while teaching in a group, e.g. with individually pre-packed exercise kits.
