Carpe Diem - Thamer International Schools

By SLC’s Psychology and Mental Health Department

Seize the day. Live in the moment. Make your life extraordinary.

Take control of your destiny. Literature, television, and history all bound us to do these things. But the real question is how? The answer is being mindful.

Being mindful means to take control of what we focus our attention on in the present moment; whether it is an emotion, a thought, a belief, or a sensation. It is about approaching that “object” with a curious and open mind.

That is the SLC - Thamer International Schools

By Rima Rabie Aladib (12-D)

It’s that time of the year again, where we get back into our academic routines and re-integrate school into our life. To ease the stress of your high school life, the batch of 2018 founded the SLC (Student Leadership Community). The SLC was specifically created to help the students feel more involved in school decisions and activities and I am confident to say that we will achieve great things this year, perhaps even more than we previously did.

Most of the members would agree that the SLC has helped them one way or another, from overcoming extreme stage fright to making new friends and finally combining to create a tiny community for ourselves. Not only is this experience an asset for your college application but for your personal life too!

The SLC Investiture - Thamer International Schools

By Naama Banaja (12-E)

The SLC Investiture was an event attended by all SSG students along with teachers to formally initiate the SLC. Mrs. Almas Khot commenced it by giving the audience a brief outline of what they will be expecting to see. The role of the host was successfully fulfilled by Anna Adnan (10-H). After a delightful Quran recitation by Lybah Adnan (11-E), two informative videos were displayed containing descriptions about the seven departments and the former committee’s achievements, artfully prepared by Andrea Reynante (12-E) and Naama Banaja (12-E). Next, Mrs. Almas requested the elected heads and co-heads for each department to take the stage; were presented with our badges and swore our oaths in unison.
