About Language School

In 1982, St. Fatima Language School was established by the late Mr. Said Younan. Since then it successfully grew and developed steadily to become what it is today. Currently, it is a fully fledged school offering all levels of education embracing all 5 stages, namely Pre-school, KG, Primary, Preparatory and Secondary.

  • Pre-school & KG
    We provide the foundation of learning where children in this stage need a variety of activities that are age appropriate. We help developing the basic skills that will allow students to excel in the later stages of learning.
  • Primary
    The Primary stage provides the students with the largest amount of information in their educational life. For that reason we provide students with interesting, interactive and repetitive learning techniques, embracing their needs.
  • Preparatory & Secondary
    In these stages students are provided with the detailed knowledge. Such information is essential for their exams, university studies and work. We provide them with tangible information aiding them in grasping the educational materials to prepare for their exams.

Mission

At St. Fatima we believe that the individual’s educational attainment is one of the most important determinants of our children’s life. Proceeding from this belief we aim to provide a superior pre-college education for our students, empowering them to move toward life’s challenges with confidence, creativity, and integrity. We strive to stimulate and foster the ethical and moral development of each child; build his personality and character and develop his talents. Creative thinking and character building are our main objectives. Our mission is not only to strive for academic excellence but also to provide an education service that builds personality and prepares a generation for a fruitful and enjoyable life.

 

Our Philosophy

Our school seeks to establish in our pupils moral, ethical, and social values which will develop their character. We believe that the acquisition of skills and knowledge in itself is insufficient to prepare young children for their future place in society. Therefore we do our utmost to inspire and promote the ethical and moral development of each child. We seek to develop in our pupils, nobility in their aspiration, honour in their conduct and excellence in their spirits. We encourage them to put into practice these values primarily in their school lives, and eventually in their own.

Our school implements a comprehensive program in pastoral care, developing moral and social character of our children, strengthening the social fabric of our small society and ultimately the greater one. Children are encouraged to participate actively in our extracurricular programs, which include music, singing, computer, sports and drawing.

St. Fatima shares your ambition in a blossom future for your children. Your decision to join our family is a responsibility both on your side and a greater one on our side. Through our partnership with parents and students, we will prepare each student for a brilliant professional career.

Learning Environment

Children are deeply affected by their school experience. At St. Fatima school the students learning experience is of significant precedence. We aim at creating the best learning environment for students. We provide stimulating environment that gives the students’ space and time to interact within the learning and teaching process. Our learning environment is not only academic but also an environment where students can develop their sense of responsibility, instil their good values, encourage self-awareness, and self confidence.
We at St. Fatima provide interactive learning environment. Such technique is designed to foster collaborative learning and reflective conversation. Interactive learning structures include smaller classes in terms of number of students. Our classes accommodate a maximum of 25 students only. Interactive learning structures also include cooperative work, and student-parent-teacher participation. It has been proven that interactive learning provides higher student achievement gains through numerous studies. These studies found that collective responsibility for student learning, an academic emphasis, and high morale are important features of successful school learning community.
St. Fatima School is committed to providing a respecting, nurturing, caring, and friendly learning environment with the highest sensitivity to each individual needs.
