I love my teacher Ms Megha because she encourages me and supports me in Science and Maths when I am confused. She also supported me in making friends!
My name is Shahan Shaqib and I am a student of Grade 1. I study in the best school in Sharjah. The name of my school is GEMS Cambridge Private School. My school has a beautiful building and big classrooms. We have the best teachers who are all so kind and cooperative. They teach us with great care. I have learnt so much on this one year with GCS.
GCS has not just given me an education, but I have learnt sincerity and to love and respect others. I have learned to follow rules. My school prepares us to take part in extra curricular activities like debates, sports and spelling competitions. Our principal is a very kind person. GCS is a second home for me and I am really proud of my school and all the teachers. I love my school!
Grade 1 A
My school is unique because there are so many students from different nationalities and I learn a lot from my classmates.
I like GCS because it has supportive teachers who are always ready to help me with my work in school. I love football and I am happy I have a great PE teacher who encourages me a lot.
I love GCS because of Ms. Rizza. She is kind and friendly to me and my classmates. I like this school because there are so many activities that make us fit and healthy.

I went GEMS Cambridge High School Abu Dhabi and I am glad my son goes to the same school because it is one of the most reputed schools in the UAE.

I am the proud parent of two daughters who are enthusiastic students at your school.
During the recent crisis of COVID-19, I was very worried. My daughters love the familiar classroom setting and enjoy their healthy interactions with their friends. The presence of a teacher stimulates their intellect and brings out the best in them. When GCS announced distance learning programme, I was wary and wondered if this would really work. After participating in this very unique programme, I am content. I must say that GCS has taken full advantage of the technological advancements today and has provided a wonderful space for children to learn, in the comforts of their own home.
The ability to continue to interact with their friends continues to be very stimulating and I too have had the privilege of learning about a new technology.
In conclusion, I am very happy with this new concept. It has definitely helped my children in this time of crisis and I look forward to reaping more benefits of this wonderful programme.

Thank you so much for the positivity and encouragement you show with the kids.
I also wanted to mention the amazing discipline maintained by the school. I was very impressed with the way kids maintain their decorum and respect with the teachers and their friends in the class. Managing a group of children on a digital platform is extremely challenging and I am very impressed with the way the children are taken care of.
You have been so prompt and systematic in replying to my concerns and queries. Thank you so much for easing our concerns and handling every situation smoothly.
Parent of Grade 6 and 8 students
Just wanted to thank you and the entire school team for making the kids feel so special. The "meet the family" was a very beautiful idea. Kids really got excited after that to attend their new classes with new teachers. They had this amazing energy and no doubt, all thanks to the teachers who gave them a very friendly welcome and made them feel special. I know it’s been difficult for you guys as well managing so many things behind for the wellbeing of our kids. Can’t thank you guys enough just an appreciation word for you and the team. Love you guys and we miss seeing those smiling faces. Hope to see you guys soon again. Once again keep the wonderful work up.
Hip hip hooray for GEMS Cambridge International School, Sharjah!

I would love to thank each one of you for your continued dedication in making e-learning more successful and interesting for kids. My special thanks to Ms. Emma Fay (Class Teacher of KG1-D) for her support, kindness and her motivation towards kids to sit, listen the class as well as to do the post-class sessions. She always gives positive motivation to kids, which makes them really feel comfortable and make them feel like they are in school with their friends.
She exhibits a high level of patience towards parents, as well kids. The eLearning is smooth for my daughter (Anjenaa). Especially this week it's really pretty good, having classes as per sections which enables more interaction with teacher and as well with their friends. Request you to continue the same in the coming weeks as well.
Once again, a heartfelt thank you to the school administration, as well as teachers who work really very hard during this pandemic for providing a good quality education for students.
