Tabeetha School, Jaffa

Special Visits

We were honoured to welcome Fiona Walker-Arnott to Tabeetha. She is a distant relative of our founder, Jane Walker Arnott, fourth generation, great niece to be exact. This is Fiona's first visit to Tabeetha. She came to learn more about her great aunt's legacy. She was amazed to see that the school her aunt built 156 years ago has become such an inspiration to all; bringing people of different faiths and backgrounds together. We were pleased to welcome a group of senior staff fromChurch of Scotland headquarters in Edinburgh. The 12 pupils who represented Tabeetha at the General Assembly met with them to answer their questions about their aspirations for their lives. Mrs MacDonald was able to take them on a tour of the school and show some of the upgraded work done this past year.

Dr. Una McGahern fromNewcastle University came to speak to some of our secondary pupils as part of her research on the educational experience of Palestinians living in Israel

We had 2 very special visitors Jack and Tom (cousins of Reuben, grade 3, and Harriet, grade 4). They came from England to tell us about the fundraising they have been doing for East Lancashire Hospice, a very special place that looks after people who are very poorly. The Hospice looked after their Mumwho very sadly died last July. To raise money Tom and Jack have been wearing shorts to school all winter!

It was good to welcome Diana Suskind from Stoneworks to the school. She held two stonework play workshops for our Reception class children and for our teachers for a CPD session.
