Graduation 2015

Graduating Class 676x447On Wednesday June 10th we said goodbye to our Graduating Class of 2015.

It was a bittersweet evening, as we first celebrated their successes in the company of friends and family. We recalled the many challenges that they have faced and overcome, whilst reminding ourselves of those that lie ahead. We are confident that our graduates are well equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to prosper in the modern world. More importantly, they are well balanced individuals with values that will guide them as they make the difficult decisions that will shape the future of the many different cultures that they represent. The tolerance and respect that they have learned at JPGS can only make the world a safer, more peaceful place.

As always there were a good number of JPGS alumni in the audience to reassure the graduates that life does go on after JPGS and encourage all at the school with the knowledge that we have made such a positive impact on the youngsters entrusted into our care that they feel so comfortable in coming back to visit us.

Class of 2015, congratulations and we look forward to seeing you achieve great things in the future!


Volleyball 2014

volley 7This year’s u16 and u19 boys and girls volleyball was a huge success. The four tournaments, two for the u16s and two for the u19s, took place on the weekend of the 17th and 18th of October.

U16 Girls The captain of the team was Leen Masarani, Yr12. Unfortunately, the team came in last place in spite of putting their best effort into the games.

When asked how she felt about the team’s performance Leen said, ”I loved the fact we all put our best effort in the game and we worked together as a team, which I feel is very important. Even though we lost all our matches, the team spirit was very high and in every game we played there was always improvement, whether it be in the score or how we played. I would just like to thank my coaches and my team for being so supportive.”

Encouragingly, the last match they played was against the team who would win the entire tournament. This was in fact there best match yet in all aspects of the game. Well Done Girls!

Saudi National Day

On the 22nd of September, Jeddah Prep and Grammar school held a celebration to mark the occasion of the Saudi National Day. The pupils of JPGS were asked to come dressed in Saudi national attire and while many students wore traditional clothing such as white thobes and jellabiyas, a number of students exercised their creativity and came in very colorful outfits. Traditional food such as kabsa, mandi, fried fish with sayadieh rice and musaqqa‘ah was served in the school’s cafeteria during lunch to tempt our palates with exotic tastes. In addition, the L.C.S (Local Cultural Studies) department organized a memorable assembly which kept all entertained during the afternoon session.

The varied performances included Arabic music, poetry and dancing and was based on the theme “Arabs Got Talent”. Students dressed as Mr. O’Shaughnessy, Mrs. Ellison, and Dr. Hitchen to carry out the role of distinguished judges.

Some of the acts featured were a Saudi version of the Harlem Shake and a creative spin on the pop song ‘Party in the USA’, which became ‘Party in the KSA’.

There was certainly a sense of excitement and celebration about the school, which gave the event a distinct flavor that has made it a much anticipated part of the school calendar. One Y7 student new to the school commented: “What made the event memorable for me was the poetry which we heard in the assembly. Although I didn’t understand it, it was really beautiful to listen to.”


International Rugby

Some exciting news came through last night!!

Despite the rules IN Saudi Arabia…

The Saudi Arabia Select Rugby League has been operating for 5 years now. We have not been able to get full international status due to internal rules and regs…

We got news last night that the Rugby League European Federation,after being persuaded by our Lebanese counterparts,has recognized us (The Saudi Select) as a full International team and as such the ball has been set in motion to form a committee and constitution governing the SAUDI ARABIA RUGBY LEAGUE ASSOCIATION.

This Association will be fully recognized internationally and although it may not be recognized in the Kingdom it will allow us to get a world ranking both at the U18 and U16 Age group levels. At the moment we regularly beat Lebanon who have ranked between 6th and 8th in the world.

This is a testament to the hard work of the players and the administration of the coaches.Hard work certainly has paid off in this case and it is an extreme honour to be one of the three main schools that feed players into this team.

It is great to see something that was initially started by one of our own – Mr. Chris Ratcliffe has taken off to this degree.
