POINTS TO PONDER, My Family
By Hala Jameel Addas (4-J),
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.
My mother cleans and cooks the food and tell us to behave and stop being rude. Our car is cute, her name is cupcake if she ran in the road she would be pancake.
Our garden has alot of trees. With butterflies and buzzing bees. Our house is loud and full of noise. What do you expect with alot of boys? Family means alot.

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.
SPOTTED AND REPORTED Implementation Day
By Upper Primary School,
The students of Grades 1 and 3 have recently explored some science topics through one of the most creative and fun means.
With each grade assigned a surprise topic, they were given material such as play dough, colored papers, glitter and colored pencils. They were then informed of the topic on the spot by their form tutors and were given almost the entire day to work on their projects.
SPOTTED AND REPORTED, Fun, Run and More!
By Lower Primary School,
January 2019 marked the Lower Primary School’s “Fun, Run and More” activity where all children participated in an enthusiastic morning race. This activity was a great opportunity to introduce our students to the joys and benefits of physical fitness and team spirit. All the Lower Primary School family which included both the children and the staff displayed fantastic energy throughout the 3-day event. It was a super way to have fun and stay fit and healthy.

T.I.S. Science and Engineering Fair (2016-2017)
Thamer International School proudly announces the beginning of the T.I.S. Science and Engineering Fair.
Clearly, any school project assigned to a student should be useful. Surprising to some, a science fair project is one of the best learning experiences a student can undertake.
Thamer International School’s Annual Science Fair
By Fatima Hossam (8-I),
On Wednesday, 6th of March, the Annual Science Fair was held in our school, and we certainly learnt new and interesting facts that we never knew we could experience learning.
The students from middle and high school were divided into groups, and each chose a different topic to demonstrate by doing live and practical experiments. Furthermore, they competed and presented their results in the form of a report, display board, and/or models that they had created.
The Higher Education and Career Fair 2017

You will be getting the required information from the delegates of top-of-range institutes; thus exploring a wide spectrum of career opportunities from international colleges and universities.
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.
