  • 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.

  • Body Experience - Thamer International Schools

    By Ghufran Hashim and Andrea Reynante (12-E)

We want students to express their creativity and have a place to showcase their crafts. We want students to be up-to-date with news and to be aware of what is going on within the school. We want students to contribute in whatever way they feel most comfortable in, because this newsletter is for the students.
