Yeah I did! But haven't heard anything yet - maybe not a good sign that you've had an offer I haven't had anything! Lol! Did they email you? I thought my interview went well - so I am just keeping my fingers crossed. xx

It's a secondary job - business studies. So it's year 9 upwards. Yeah they called me this morning. Just waiting on the package now. It's madness that I in actual fact could be going now. Are you excited? Is your package good?x

Hi Guys...just saying hello! I'm teaching there too this year (primary). Would be good to be in touch with fellow newbies! :)
Hi Marianne,

I will be teaching in the primary base too, very excited. When did you accept the job? I accepted mine in March. Will try to send you a message on here but not sure if you will receive it due to there being a minimum post requirement. We have a growing group on facebook of people, mainly teachers, who are moving out the Dubai this summer. It has proved to be very helpful.

Hiya Jamila!

There is fb group - send miss s (shes the moderator) or me a msg with your email and we will invite you. I tried to message you but I'm not sure you got it. Same to Marianne also, I'm not sure you got my msg as I think I put my email in and they block them.

Not sure what you mean by who I am staying with? We have 1 bed apts at Ghoroob Mirdif (vids are on youtube).

Btw, I was under the impression we did not need to get a visa. British Citizens can stay for 30 days without a visa and that can be extended to 90 days on request. The school processes the work visa for us when we arrive as per the staff handbook / contract. If you haven't received the new starter docs I could email them to you. Did you get the msg from the ast head with school info on policies, curriculum etc?

Hi everyone going to work at SRS, I will be joining you all in Dubai in August, I am 24 from London and I have only just accepted the job 4 days ago. What year group are you all teaching? I still have to book my flight what date are people flying? The accommodation looks good too.
Cant wait to chat with you all.

I will be teaching Y1 and am flying out with Miss S 19th aug. Getting very excited about Dubai and now Mirdif. It appears to be a great place to live and Mirdif City Centre looks cool and just discovered Dubai Mushrif Park | Mushrif Park In Dubai | Dubai Park Mushrif is across the road pretty much.
Hello trendybendy,

I have lived in Mirdif for the past six years and I can tell you that there are not many other places in Dubai that I would rather be.

It has a great expat community and is well established with lots of shopping malls/cinema's/parks/gyms/hotels/restaurants/bars/pubs very close by, usually within 5-10 mins drive.

When you arrive feel free to drop me a PM, I live very close by and I'd be more than happy to meet up with a few of you, I know of some local nice places for welcome drinkies :)
