The new Head boy, Amr Hisham and Head girl, Salma Moussa have been elected by their peers and teachers.
Congratulations to both students! We know they will carry out their duties responsibly. Their first duty was to
represent the students of Nibras when Dr Abdullah Al Karam and his team from KHDA came to discuss the future
of education in the U.A.E. last Wednesday.

that count.
It’s the life in your years.’
