Principal's Desk


Dear Parents,

At Oakridge, learning never stops, and our students’ remarkable contributions at the Dubai STEAM Festival were a testament to this commitment. Furthermore, our youngest learners from Early Years took the Global Campus by storm, exhibiting their boundless enthusiasm. 

Our students have returned from their well-deserved Dussehra break, re-energized and ready to continue their learning journey. This break allowed them to recharge, fostering renewed enthusiasm.

In the spirit of unity, we recently convened an all-hands meet, where we came together as a team to share our goals and extend heartfelt appreciation to our exceptional staff. Your unwavering commitment to our school’s mission is truly commendable.

With the new term in full swing, we are thrilled to anticipate what the coming months will bring. November is teeming with a vibrant lineup of exciting events and valuable updates, all of which we are eager to share with you.

Thank you for being an integral part of the Oakridge family. Together, we will continue to explore, learn, uplift, and embrace the fresh opportunities that lie ahead. Here’s to a month filled with fulfillment and positive impact!
