TIS SCOOP, Wake Up Wednesday
By Naama Banaja (12-D),
Wake Up Wednesday is a weekly radio segment that replaces the mundane power-points with something that’s more motivating and energizing.
It was conceptualized and begun by the SLC heads with a nudge from their English teacher. The topics vary every week and also depends on which department is taking the helm. For example, the first broadcast was taken over by the C&I whose topic of choice was to remind the seniors of their university deadlines and for the younger batches to be prepared earlier. I personally helped with the technical aspects on both broadcast by playing or arranging any media file needed. This project has received mixed reviews, but mostly positive especially from the staff, students, and the head of Senior School herself.

What is the SLC?
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!

الفشل حارس النجاح
بقلم: ميرا محمد الضميري/ التاسع (ز)
توفي والدي في صغري وصرت عندها في قمة الحزن، كنت أبتسم وفي عيني ألف دمعة، الصمت يتملكني ولكن في قلبي جرح يتكلم، وإن أجبرت نفسي على الكلام فالكلام عاجز عن التعبير عما بداخلي. تزوجت في شبابي ثم التحقت بالجيش وتركت بلدي، وقد علمتني الغربة أكثر من أي معلم آخركيف أكتب اسم وطني بالنجوم على سبورة الليل.
خرجت من الجيش فاقداً الأمل، وعملت في محطات الوقود. هناك كنت أرى الناس وأرى الحياة أرى كيف يصبح الأغنياء فقراء، والفقراء يمسون أغنياء، كيف يغدو الغالبون مغلوبين، الحوادث لا تكف عن الجريان والناس في لعبة تبادل الكراسي، لا حزن يستمر ولا فرح يدوم.
