Thank you for your tremendous effort you all gave to make the "Primary Book Week special for JBS
Today, 06 March 2014 was the Book Character day. We began the day with our annual parade after registration and many of the parents were excited to see their children at the 'catwalk'. Here are some pictures of the students and teachers.
BBC Journalist Kate Adie visits JBS
Veteran BBC Journalist Kate Adie visited JBS on Wednesday March 6, and held a group of students and parents spellbound as she recounted what it was like to report from some of the most dangerous places in the world – scenes of conflict and natural disaster – over the last 30 years. For 14 years she was the BBC’s Chief News Correspondent reporting directly from places like Bosnia and Rwanda.
AT JBS she spoke about what it takes to be a journalist – and her main advice? You have to be polite to get people to tell their stories, and you have to be curious, or, as she put it, nosey. A group of Grade 10 JBS students were so taken with what Ms. Adie had to say that they invited her back to their next lesson – where the conversation carried on.

Kate Adie was visiting Dubai to take part in the Emirates Airlines Literary Festival. Ms. Adie is now a freelance journalist, best-selling author and the host of the BBC’s weekly news radio programme From our Own Correspondent, a weekly compilation of special reports from BBC journalists around the world.
Jumeira Baccalaureate School Welcomes The First Lady Of Tanzania, HE Salma Kikwete
As part of a high profile Tanzanian trade mission to the region, Jumeira Baccalaureate School (JBS) welcomed the First Lady of Tanzania, HE Salma Kikwete.
First Lady, HE Salma Kikwete, a former teacher of twenty years visited Jumeira Baccalaureate School (JBS) on Wednesday 26 February 2014. She met with Mrs Ros Marshall , CEO of Taaleem, Dr. Samia Al Farra, CEdO of Taaleem and Mr Andrew Homden, Principal at Jumeira Baccalaureate School. She also had a tour of the school, meeting students and teachers.
First Lady, HE Salma Kikwete founded Wanawake Na Maendeleo (WAMA) Foundation in 2006, which is a non profit organization aimed at improving the social and economic state for the women, girls and other vulnerable children in Tanzania by providing them access to education, health services and economic empowerment.
Mr. Andrew Homden said: “We are honoured to be part of such a prestigious and high profile visit. If we can help support achieving the objectives set by the WAMA Foundation and enable women, girls and vulnerable children to gain access to education of which we take for granted, we will feel privileged to do so.”
JBS is keen to support charities to ensure that other children and families across the world have access to education and the many others things that we simply take for granted. We host many events across the academic year to help to support such charities. Our staff and students are keen to support overseas projects and initiatives and a joint project in Tanzania will greatly benefit all involved.
