Christine Simmonds

Principal

I am delighted to serve as the principal and ensuring success for Nibras and most importantly, your children.

As part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP) family, NIS is dedicated to ensuring that every child experiences ‘Amazing Learning’. I want you to literally ‘be amazed’ by the learning and progress made by your child, and it goes without saying that they need to amaze themselves with what they can achieve.

In order to continue and improve upon our recent successes my focus as principal is to provide co to your, consistency, communication and collaboration to you as partners in our students’ learning.
