House >> Ummbab Wolves
Baab Wolves were formed in 2005 upon the introduction of the House system at
Dukhan English School. In the decade since, the pack have grown into a
formidable force in all events; winning the Inter House Art competition in
2014; the Inter House Music in 2015; and being victorious in many events on the
sports’ field where, at the time of writing the Key Stage 4/5 boys have just
successfully defended their House Football title with a convincing 6-2 win over
The academic year 2015/16 sees a number new members joining the pack, and a
number of familiar faces taking on new positions. The new Primary Head of Green
House is Ms West and in Secondary, Mr. Gomersall takes over from the outgoing
Mr. Ali. Both Mr. Gomersall and Ms West have high hopes for the new academic
year and are setting their sights on the House Shield at the end of the year,
something the Secondary Green House have been waiting six years to get their
hands on, having not won the shield since 2009. Both Heads of House will be
looking for high levels of participation from all members of the pack,
enthusiasm, support and positive attitudes at House events and around the
school in general.
Mr Gomersall will be supported by two Student Heads of House: Ali Rauf and
Zainab Rauf in the sixth form. Lower down the school we have Nouran and Ali
Baig in Key Stage 4; Amr and Samar in Year 9; Janneth and Nauman in Year 8 and
Jana and Wahed in Year 7. These pupils have been chosen for their
organizational skills, their enthusiasm around school and across the curriculum
and their willingness to go the extra mile for the Umm Baab Wolves’ cause.
Please support them by handing in your House Points on time, offering your
services in events when you are needed and making sure you turn up promptly to
the events in which you have been chosen to take part.
Good luck everyone. Let’s make this a year to remember.
