  • Arabic Calligraphy - Thamer International Schools

    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.

  • 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.

  • Matilda - Thamer International Schools

    By Hala Al Sulaiman (6-I)

    Matilda Wormwood is a young girl who is extraordinarily brilliant. At a young age, she started solving complex math problems mentally and read books meant for adults. Unfortunately though, Matilda grew up with parents who did not give her the attention and love she deserves. Mr. and Mrs. Wormwood and their son, Michael, are quite different from Matilda - preferring to watch television rather than read books. They do not understand her and so often treat her badly.

    Rather than feel hopeless, Matilda plays tricks on her family to get back at them for the way they treat her: replacing her father’s hair tonic with platinum hair dye and using a parrot to convince them that their house is haunted. These tricks give Matilda some relief and distract her parents from mistreating her.
