  • Arabic Calligraphy

    By Layan Halabi (12-E)

    I love to draw. I love to create shapes and make them into works of art. I love to solve and construct drawings for hours. I love to look at drawings of other creators and learn new ways to become better. I love color, patterns and a sense of style. Art is what I love. Duo, pair, team, these are words I can easily identify with. As a child, I drew comics with my friends and we created compelling story lines with our imaginations.

    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.

He persistently attacked Heifhoem; therefore, the king of this magnificent city, King Roberto, decided to battle the Beast himself.

  • CAIE Registration

    By Ola Omer (10-G)

    “The circus arrives without warning.”The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern has to be one of the most captivating books that I have ever read. The book has an expansive timeline and follows the narrative of two magicians as well as an unspoken rivalry played out over several generations by two delegated pupils, Celia and Marco.

    The two characters are bound into a lifelong challenge, the rules of which have never been made evident to them with a timeframe that exceeds any of their wildest thoughts. The challenge comes in the form of a traveling night circus better known as Le Cirque des Reves. Both Marco and Celia have become passionately entangled with the acts and performances involved as well as inevitably with each other’s capabilities. The circus is an everlasting test of trust. Whether they can transcend the fate that has been written for them without annihilating the circus and themselves becomes the novel’s central question.

    By Haya Ibrahim Al Thurari (8-J)

    Travel has taught me to be open to breaking the norm, to be open to doing things differently from the way other people do them. You don’t have to go where everyone else is going, which is why, last year I decided to go to Haiti.
