Students Welfare

“ We offer a framework of opportunities and support that meets each student’s unique needs, built on a foundation of core values.”

Liwa International School Falaj Hazza has a robust-designed after school program available for all students to take part in.

Our activities are carefully planned to develop students’ core competency skills. Developing the students as a whole is of paramount importance to Liwa and so the extra-curricular activities aid the subject competencies that are taught during curriculum time. Each activity is strategically chosen to target one or more of the following competencies.

Reward System

We believe that rewards can drive intrinsic motivation and a healthy competitive spirit among students.

Below are some of the most innovative methods to drive motivation:

  • Appreciation certificates, trophies and awards for distinguished students.
  • Recreational trips.
  • Programs aimed to prepare students before their internal and external examinations.
  • Recreational programs.
  • Educational trips to scientific museums, universities, and art galleries.
  • Trips to career fairs, art fairs, social, and cultural fairs.
  • Providing students with leadership and ownership opportunities to encourage them to make an instrumental change in their learning environment and the school community.
  • Exploiting authentic experiences of learning where students are encouraged to explore, experiment, and reflect on their own learning.
  • Running an advisory program that caters to students’ academic progress, social awareness and sense of belonging to the school community.
  • Establishing a well-being environment through the regular PACE (Personality and Community Education) lessons that foster students’ social, emotional, and personal well-being.

These methods further boost student morale with special mentions in school newsletters, online editorials, school blogs/podcasts, or local newspapers.

Environment, Health & Safety

Apart from creating a robust, dynamic environment filled with knowledge and activities, we also prioritize health and awareness for various medical issues.

Since its inception, LISF has been dedicated to facilitating medical care and attention to staff members, faculty and students.

To fulfill this objective, we have collaborated with various medical hospitals and enterprises to provide appropriate medical staff, instruments such as vaccinations, bandages, medical kits etc., to eliminate all inhibitions.

Our health services include:

  • Two school doctors and two experienced emergency nurse.
  • A school clinic whereby doctors are available full-time.
  • Workshops organized by the Ministry of Health for doctors and nurses to polish their skills and stay up to date about current diseases, viruses, and preventive measures against them.
  • Cabinets with non-prescription medicines along with tri-annual medicine inventory.
  • Annual medical supplies authorized by the Ministry of Health.
  • First-aid equipment.
  • Adequate transportation for sick/injured individuals accompanied by the school doctor or nurse.
  • Orientation and training on the first aid at the beginning and end of the academic year.
  • An updated emergency procedure manual with written instructions for drills, evacuation maps, and safety rules about school facilities.
  • Annual medical examinations with a precise medical record stating the student’s health problems and growth map.

Liwa reserves the right to permit or deny access to anyone other than the staff, students, and parents within the school premises.

Directives about the cultural codes are:
  • Separate entrance and exit gates for Male and Female students of Grade 5 and above
  • No male members are allowed to access the school using the girls’ entrance.
  • All entrances/gates are manned during the opening and closing times of school.

Counseling and Development 

The school has developed a Counseling & Development Program that supports teaching and learning by ensuring that all students achieve academic success and develop life skills through acquiring academic, career, and personal/social competencies. This program prepares them for university/college level study and, eventually, meaningful participation in a diverse, changing world. Moreover, the school provides seminars and trips to career fairs and universities to acquaint students with career opportunities so that they can choose the type of higher education they choose to pursue.

    • As the number of students increased steadily over the past five years, the school has assigned five counselors, namely three School Deputies (School Deputy for Academics, School Deputy for Student Affairs, and School Deputy for the junior school), and three social workers in order to provide comprehensive school counseling programs that incorporate prevention and intervention activities through school-wide assemblies and activities, classroom guidance lessons, intentional guidance groups, individual counseling, and collaboration with outside community resources. These counselors also assist students in ensuring they meet high school graduation requirements. (Refer to School Deputy Log).
    • Liwa International School – Falaj Hazza has developed a system of processes to communicate the policies and strategies related to guidance and resources services to meet student needs. Proper access to such information is ensured through different means.

The Role of Teachers in promoting Care and Guidance:

(a) Promote students’ personal, social, academic, and career development through implementing personal growth education and related guidance activities.

(b) Enhance the earning abilities of students through promoting various study strategies and activities.

(c) Advise on the areas of personal, social, academic, and career development of students through participation in cross-curricular planning.

Student Leadership Committee

The Student Leadership Committee is part of the Pastoral Care program. The nominees nominate themselves, prepare their speeches and program and present them to students. All students from 5-12 participate in the election. The university career counselor meets the Student Leadership Committee (SLC) bi-weekly to discuss various projects with different goals, offering opportunities for extra-curricular activities, leadership skills and voluntary chances.
