  • Jeddah KSA - Thamer International Schools

    By Suha Mirza (11-E),

    Stepping out of the airport, my body is not ready for the immediate blast of hot desert air that contrasts the cool winds of Europe immensely. Despite the fact that there was once a time I loathed this heat, this bustle of people and the atmosphere, I smile in serenity. I am home.

  • Miami Florida - Thamer International Schools

    By Saif Hatim (8-E)

    Located in the south tip of Florida, Miami thrives as one of the largest and most popular vacation spot which attracts millions of visitors that add to the city’s population.

    To begin with, Miami has its own unique barrier islands that are a major attraction along with their historical hotels and beaches. Little Havana is the heart of history of the country, because of the Cuban invasion in 1960 that changed the entire look of the place to a much more beautiful city. Although it is popular for its Doral golf fields, it has been somehow repurposed as a land for artists and designers that have turned it even more attractive, with art museums and a place for cultural activities.

  • TRAVELOGUE, Paddington Station - Thamer International Schools

    By Yousuf Khot (9-B),

    As you step your foot at any busy railway station, you witness a sea of people haphazardly rushing from one platform to another. You always find absolute commotion and noise.

    From the entrance itself, Paddington Station looks massive and huge. Some tourists with heavy backpacks patiently wait for their trains to arrive. While others are at the cafeteria grabbing a light meal before a long journey. A few office men and women dapperly dressed briskly rushed on platform to be on time for work. Next to the iron statue of Paddington, two little kids frolic around while their parents click their pictures. Tired looking after a long journey, a mother and son probably were eagerly waiting for their relative to pick them up.

    Blue is the color for me, It is very bright to see. Red is the color of my dress because it is releases me from stress. My room is filled with white. That brightens because of light. Pink is the color of my bag which has a tiny hanging rag. My bathrobe is green and it is always clean.

  • Mount. Everest - Thamer International Schools

    By Joy Khoury (8-G)

    As I walked through the covers of mist and fog,

    That hide the mountains under.

    Unlike a mother’s warm hug

    It brings fright and wonder.

     

    It was cold and gray

    But for some reason, there was a flower

    I have 4 brothers big and small some are short and some are tall. My sister's baby is small and fat, he looks adorable when he wears his hat.

  • Points to Ponder - Poem - Thamer International Schools

    By Ahd Ahmed (8-H)

    If there is a future there is time for mending - Time to see your troubles coming to an ending.

    Life is never hopeless however great your sorrow - If you're looking forward to a new tomorrow.

    If there is time for wishing then there is time for hoping - When through doubt and darkness you are blindly groping.

    Though your heart be heavy and hurt you may be feeling - If there is time for praying there is time for healing.

  • Why Give Up - Thamer International Schools

    By Imad Salha (12-B),

    I've been a student for a while. Almost eighteen years now. I'm not trying to show off or boast, I'm not that victorious of a student. Frankly I gave up on myself more than once, but there was this force that prevented me from doing so, and it just took me back to the drawing board. What is that force? You wonder. HOPE is that force, whether it is from a smiley teacher or that dream I had of making my first million at the age of twenty-five. HOPE isn't a value like my grades or my obscurely increasing weight. You can't just measure hope, it’s always there, but it's your job to find it. It's your way of balancing the positive and the negative.

  • Senior Experience - Thamer International Schools

    By Hadeel Osama M Oun (12-E),

    It’s about time!

    My high school years are coming to an end. Although some people might think that graduating from high school is a tiny chapter in the big book called ‘life’, to me it’s a pretty immense milestone. When I think about the new chapter I am so close to reaching in my life, I get a knot in the pit of my stomach. I come across a lot of different emotions, some of which are fear, sprinkles of nervousness, with a side of excitement and expectation.
