Remote Learning at DESS

This week, our focus was on the character strengths, Zest and Humour. Zest is about the energy and excitement you bring to your day; approaching a task with enthusiasm, whole-heartedly. The idea of zest is ‘to live not just exist’. However, Zest does not mean being happy all the time, and this is something we emphasised to the children this week. 

Through the course of the week, we showed the children a number of helpful resources on this strength, including a video asking the children and their families to think about the things that really ‘bring out their zest’ and to begin each day with that. 



Don’t forget there are many ways you can communicate with us:

Parent / Teacher Communication: Parents can communicate with the class teachers using the designated class email.

Parent / School Communication: Parents will continue to contact the school via Jacqui Thurley or Reception for general enquiries.

Social media: Please share your comments on our social media platforms. We love receiving your messages and tweets. Don’t forget to include the following hashtags: #InThisTogether #InThisTogetherDubai #WeHaveGotThis #DESStrongerThanEver #DESSremotelearning #RemoteLearning
