This issue focuses on safety. As such,both our Class Time and After the Bell sections of the magazine feature articles that highlight the importance of ensuring student safety in and out of the school environment. We were pleased to meet the delightful students and teacher of Grade 4A at Raffles World Academy, who have taken the lead in campaigning for stricter seat belt laws to govern the UAE roadways.

We encourage you to check out our featured school, teacher and student articles, to learn more about this amazing project and how you and your students can get involved by taking the Seat Belt Pledge. After the Bell also includes an intimate look at some rarely discussed, personal issues that affect teachers; such as teacher burnout and depression. Our featured travel takes you to Thailand and the refreshing attractions that may just be the place for you to getaway to this holiday break.
