I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to Awfaz Global School (AGS). My name is Mike Hindle and I am delighted to have been appointed as Principal of Izghawa Campus.
I have moved to Doha from the UK, where I have over 25 years’ experience of teaching and school leadership in a wide variety of settings. I have provided educational consultancy, school improvement advice, training and CPD to schools world-wide.
Here at AGS, we teach our students through the highly respected British Curriculum, providing a solid basis to allow your child to continue their education anywhere in the world once they leave us. We place our students – from KG through primary, secondary and ‘6th form’ – at the heart of everything we do. We aim not only to prepare our children for adult life in an ever-changing world, but to ensure that their childhood is as wonderful as it can possibly be. My belief is that our children get only one chance at childhood, and as educators (and parents) we have a clear opportunity and responsibility to make that time a happy, safe and wondrous journey of discovery and learning.
It is widely known that children learn best when they feel happy, safe, calm, motivated, challenged and supported, and are provided with excellent role-models. At AGS, all staff know that our community of learners can only flourish to reach their highest potential in a dynamic and stimulating learning environment where they feel safe, secure and happy; where they are surrounded by caring and talented staff; where mutual respect and the highest standards of behaviour and manners are non-negotiable and where all members of our community have a voice that is heard and celebrated.
We care about each and every one of our students as individuals and we place tremendous value on the role that parents have to play in an active partnership with school, ensuring that your children reach the highest possible standards of academic success, as well as physical, emotional, spiritual, cultural and social awareness and development. Our fantastic team at AGS will facilitate and empower your children not only to be excellent communicators with high levels of literacy, numeracy, scientific understanding and digital mastery, but to develop curiosity in the world; to be problem solvers and creative thinkers with global awareness.
All of us at AGS take huge pride in all aspects of our school and we are committed to ensuring that we become recognised as one of the leading schools in the Middle East.
