With exams over and the end of the first term in sight, Cranleighans in Abu Dhabi are enjoying the last few days of term and the school is buzzing with drama productions, trips, musical concerts and inter-House competitions.

Edutainment activities are ranging from the Hip House Holler – our annual inter-House singing competition – to days out at the amazing waterpark Yas Waterworld. Musicians are putting on a Winter Overture while drama students have entertained audiences with 'Alice in Wonderland' (Years 3 and 4) and, in a school first, 'The Bee Hive' which saw the Drama and Arabic departments come together to produce a bilingual play. The cast comprised pupils in Year 4 to Year 9 who are part of the after school drama club. Cross country runners decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather at this time of year with a mannequin challenge on Saadiyat beach where they have been training since October.
