Default Anyone moving to Dubai Silicon Oasis to work in the new Gems school?

Me & my husband are moving to Dubai in August to teach in the new Gems School in Silicon Oasis. I've managed to make contact with one other teacher who is moving out too, so I thought I'd put a message out to see if there's anyone else in the same boat...feel free to drop me a line if you are going out there and would like to get in touch before we make the big move!

Hi,
Pretty sure my partner and I will be joining you. It's not final yet as I am still waiting to speak to the head and for the process to begin. How far are you with that?

My son will be starting in yr 1 in sept @ new Gems school in DSO Perhaps you will be his teacher?! We move out in august. Good luck with your move and I hope you find more teachers on here. I have found quite a few parents of kids starting at new gems school on here so must be some teachers out there too otherwise the kids are gonna run riot!!

Hey, sorry, only just realised I never replied to your response!
In terms of the process of contract, getting documents attested etc, we're pretty much done. Just counting down the days now
What subjects/years do you two teach? I'll be the one & only music teacher in the school, and my husband is a PE teacher.

Hi
I can't seem to private message you - I think you have to have written 5 posts to be able to send or receive private messages.
If you like you can ask me questions on here, won't be able to give much in detail info though, seeing as everyone will be able to see!
Good luck with the interview - if you're interviewed by the principal Martin Clark, he is a really nice guy, really looking forward to having him as our new principal as of September
What subject/year do you teach?

Hey thanks for messaging me back
I have an interview tomorrow so fingers crossed!! I am a primary trained teacher so i will either be key stage 1/2 or foundation stage. Im not sure how to private message on this? I seen in one of your posts about a staff handbook maybe?? Would you mind emailing it to me or if i could ask about accomidation etc?? Dont want to do it on the actual forum but im not sure how to private message??

Hi

I don't think I'm really in the position to email you the staff booklet as I'm sure Gems will consider it private information, but I can tell you all the teachers are going to be put in apartments in Business Bay, not Silicon Oasis as we originally assumed!

The principal is very pleasant so I'm sure he won't mind you asking all these questions tomorrow in the interview...I had tons of questions about Dubai, even little things like how Western women are treated by the locals, and if I can wear a bikini on the beach! He was happy to answer everything

Are you having the interview here in England or are you already working out in Dubai?
