Welcome Message from the Principal

Ms. Catherine McKeever

I am delighted to be returning to Dubai after my time in Switzerland to join the GEMS Wellington Primary family. In many ways for me it feels like ‘coming home’ as I have many friends and colleagues here in Dubai.  I have been a member of the GEMS community for 4 years and am excited by my new leadership opportunity at GWPS.  Thank you to all for the warm welcome I have received from children, staff and parents.

I have been a School Principal and involved in school leadership for the past 20 years.  Until last month, I was Head of School at GEMS World Academy Switzerland GEMS World Academy Switzerland. Prior to that, I was the Principal/CEO at GEMS Jumeirah Primary School for two years - an ‘Outstanding’ GEMS school.  Before moving overseas, I was the Headteacher of St. Joseph’s Primary school in Maida Vale, West London for five years.  I have also undertaken a number of headships at diverse, multicultural schools in London. 

I am really looking forward to working with all the children, staff and parents at GWPS!
