Here at LISG, parents play a key role in supporting their child’s learning. We run weekly parent engagement programs for all stages of the school to ensure our parents are equipped with strategies to support their children at home. Parent-teacher meetings are also important for teachers to update parents on any concerns, termly targets and areas for improvement.
We believe that parents are key partners for us in creating an outstanding school. We welcome all parents and we value the contributions that you make in efforts to provide the best educational experience for your daughters.ENQUIRE NOW

We are committed to working with parents as partners for their child’s education and engaging with them in a range of ways. We have therefore created a Parents Council as a means by which we can do this. The Parent Council is defined as the ‘Parents’ Voice’ in matters concerning the interests and well-being of our children.
The Parents Council aims to:
LISG provides supervised transportation in air-conditioned buses. It is possible to book for one way transportation only, bearing in mind that the transport fees are fixed (i.e., the same) irrespective of whether the student uses the bus one way or two ways. Charges may be obtained from the school accountant.
LISG provides a comprehensive range of extra-curricular activities to support authentic, engaging, and interdisciplinary student learning experiences. Clubs are designed to cultivate personal and social curiosity and confidence while promoting life-long health awareness. Specific extra-curricular activities such as creative arts, puzzle solving, Zumba, textile, cooking, and a lot more are offered school-wide.
“We offer a framework of opportunities and support that meets each student’s unique needs, built on a foundation of core values.”
Engaging pupils in the life of the school through decision-making, supporting activities or helping each other brings significant benefits. Children bring passion, energy and new perspectives to our work. It is for this reason that we have set up a Student Council. Each year group from Grade 5 upwards has two elected representatives on the Council. An election takes place each year for the Council and students participate in decision making about the learning environment, staffing and behavior.
Liwa International School for Girls puts the welfare and happiness of all its pupils at the heart of everything we do. We have created a safe and loving environment for our students so that they can learn and develop socially and emotionally. In addition we have created a number of policies that underpin our work including child protection and safeguarding policies. We also have a full time social worker.
We have a fully equipped clinic with medical facilities on our campus with a full-time qualified nurse. She is available for all basic medical matters including vaccinations, first aid and administering medication to students. Our nurse is a key member of staff.
It is important to us that all of our students have the opportunity to develop with not just the academics, but also the creative and enrichment elements of education. That is why we provide a wide range of additional activities for students.

We believe that rewards can drive intrinsic motivation and a healthy competitive spirit among students.
Below are some of the most innovative methods to drive motivation:
These methods further boost student morale with special mentions in school newsletters, online editorials, school blogs/podcasts, or local newspapers.
Apart from creating a robust, dynamic environment filled with knowledge and activities, we also prioritize health and awareness for various medical issues.
Since its inception, LISG’s goal has been facilitating medical care and attention to staff members, faculty and students.
To fulfill this objective, we have collaborated with various medical hospitals and enterprises to provide appropriate medical staff, and instruments such as vaccinations, bandages, medical kits, etc., to eliminate all inhibitions.
Our health services include:
Liwa reserves the right to permit or deny access to anyone other than the staff, students, and parents within the school premises.
The school has developed a Counseling & Development Program that supports teaching and learning by ensuring that all students achieve academic success and develop life skills through acquiring academic, career, and personal/social competencies. This program prepares them for university/college level study and, eventually, meaningful participation in a diverse, changing world. Moreover, the school provides seminars and trips to career fairs and universities to acquaint students with career opportunities so that they can choose the type of higher education they choose to pursue.
Liwa International School for Girls has developed a system of processes to communicate the policies and strategies related to guidance and resources services to meet student needs. Proper access to such information is ensured through different means
The Role of Teachers in Promoting Care and Guidance:
(a) Promote students’ personal, social, academic, and career development through implementing personal growth education and related guidance activities.
(b) Enhance the earning abilities of students through promoting various study strategies and activities.
(c) Advise on the areas of personal, social, academic, and career development of students through participation in cross-curricular planning.
The Student Council is a significant part of the student welfare program as it represents the interests of the students in a collective form. A staff advisor conducts weekly, monthly, and annual meetings to discuss the same. The elective process takes place from grades 5 to 12, where all students participate in electing representatives from their classes.
