Our Mission

To positively impact the lives of our learners and make their potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities.

Welcome to Beacon Private School Parents Teachers Learners Association (PTLA)!!!

Our aim is to support our children’s education and experience at Beacon Private School by providing memorable school events, worthwhile fundraisers, social gatherings for parents, learners and teachers alike and strengthen our school’s local community.

As a parent at Beacon School, you are welcome to attend any of our monthly meetings. Parents can get involved and volunteer even if they only have a small amount of time available. Joining the PTLA activities is a good opportunity to: meet other parents, raise funds, support the school, and work together towards a common goal.

Beacon Private School is truly a special place.  We have an amazing community of learners, parents, teachers and staff.  Contributing to the PTLA only enhances and strengthens this relationship.

We will work in partnership with individuals and organizations to enhance our ability to serve and advocate for all learners and their families.


We are dedicated to our learners’ success, health and well-being through strong family and community engagement.


We value the individual contributions of members, volunteers, teachers, and partners as we work collaboratively to achieve our goals.

I am the proud mother of Raya (Grade 3) and Balqees (Grade 1), both of whom have taught me   that learning is a never ending process and that we are all a work in progress.

Born and raised in Bahrain, I went to Bahrain School, and then to university in the US for six years.  There I embraced my passion for the arts, literature, writing and all forms of storytelling; completing a BA in English and a Master’s degree in Journalism from Boston University. Upon returning to Bahrain, I worked briefly at the Ministry of Information and then the Court of the Crown Prince where I am currently employed and where I met my loving husband.

I believe there is much to gain from the simple pleasures in life.  I enjoy cooking with my family as well as outdoor activities that allow us to keep in touch with nature and stay fit.  As both a chocolate lover and a healthy eater (I try!), I like to spend time with my kids creating and modifying (and tasting!) healthy desserts and snacks.

Beacon school’s philosophy and approach to learning has brought balance and harmony to our life, and I feel confident and secure about my children’s education and future. I decided to join the PTLA to give back to the BPS community and to be more involved in my children’s school activities.

Born and raised in Athens met the love of my life in the eyes of a Bahraini girl named Dana during my UK university years. Today, fortunate father of two charming kids Zoi (Grade 3) and Georgios (Grade 1), have been living happily in the beautiful Kingdom of Bahrain for over 10 years. 

I have a BA in French & Italian and an MA in Diplomacy. I’m a seasoned Marketing and Digital professional within Financial Services and on the side I have a passion for cooking. 

My personal mottos: “Cultural differences simply act as a yarn of curiosity unraveling until we get to the other side.” And “Live life. Learn lessons. Liberate yourself.”

I strongly believe Beacon International School supports and fosters both mottos and couldn’t be prouder and more honored to be part of the PTLA group.
