Clarion School Dubai

Meet the Principal of Clarion School

With a gorgeous creative campus space, and a truly progressive learning style, we can’t wait for this new school to open in September! The curriculum strives to help students gain a lasting understanding (rather than a post-exam memory lapse) of all topics. Sound good? We think so. So if you’re looking for get a bit more of an inside scoop, then the chance to meet the Principal is the perfect time! Make sure you come with questions, mamas, because Dr. Kandace Williams, Clarion School Superintendent, will definitely have all the answers! She will be sharing her insights on a progressive curriculum: what it means, how it’s delivered, and ALL the long term benefits.

When: Tuesday, 22, from 8:30am
Where: Reform Social & Grill, Emirates Golf Course, Dubai, UAE
How much: Free entry

YAW - La Serre

Mother’s Day at La Serre

We can never say “no” to food and family combo’s – and when it’s Mother’s Day, we have even more of a reason to celebrate! Join in the art sessions at La Serre with fine artist, Jessica Watson-Thorp. With all sorts of treats, we trust that we’ll be leaving happy and full! Plus, they even let the little one customise their very own chef’s hat! Too cute. Looking for a reason to spoil yourself? Simple: because you deserve it. We even hear that Bourjois Middle East will be there with a little surprise – HOORAY!

When: Monday, 21 March, from 3:30 to 5pm

Hub Dot Event

The core of Hub Dot is to disrupt the way we network, regardless of whether we are women in business, at the school gate, in education, or in charity! By creating a space for open connections, they remove labels (no titles, no job description – yippee!) and replace them with 5 coloured Dots (queue the questions) – giving women the freedom to explore and start conversations that begin with ‘What’s your story?’ and not, ‘What do you do?’. Sounds like something every bustling city needs!

When: Tuesday, 22 March
Where: Venue TBC  – please watch this space (may no longer be at Comptoir 102!)
How much: Book here

Join Cecile De Scally, co-founder of Baby Senses, who promises to clear up those unanswered questions. The event begins with a healthy breakfast buffet, and the topics covered include everything, from Raising a Newborn, Travel, Sleep, and Preparing for the First Steps. Let’s get those questions answered!

When: Monday, 21 March
Where: Mamas and Papas, Mirdiff City Centre, Dubai, UAE

BabySense Massage Morning

Don’t miss out on this (free!) mama and bub workshop! We all know how much we love a good massage (improving circulation and baby soft skin? We’re in!). We can only imagine the benefits it has on the tinies! Michelle Sweeney has been working with mums and babies for over a decade, so she definitely knows the tricks of the trade. Plus, since she’s lived in Dubai for the last 8 years, with three beautiful daughters of her own, we can trust that her advice is mama-approved!

When: Thursday, 24 March
Where: BabySenses Mother and Child Centre, Jumeirah Business Centre 4, Dubai, UAE
