Hello you! Not seen you around lately

We are staring to look at putting her name down as she is now 8mths old These past 8mths have flown by, and with the shortage of good school places in Dubai we wanted to try and secure the best for her. A British Curriculum is a must in our quest to find a good school.

p.s. I hear you with regards to the traffic recently, see you should have chosen Warqaa, its much more civilised over here. God knows what its going to be like when all the villas an apartments are occupied that border tripolis st and algeria st.

They allow registration for a fee of AED500, but this does not guarantee acceptance (which is based upon an assessment, yep, assessment even for a 3yr old).

so you pay 500AED now and in 2yr and 3months, when you may not even be living here anymore, you may get into the school, but its not guaranteed?

I am willing to sacrifice 500dhs on the chance that everything goes in our favour and she gets a place at a good school. There is obviously a limit (not really considered what it would be), but I don't think 500dhs is too great a deal to worry about when compared to the potential happiness and success of my daughter.

i agree, i am warming to the idea. Just hope the school hasnt been bulldozed by that time, you do know what Dubai is like!!

like you say 500AED is nothing really..
