Dia duit (Hello in Irish!). My name is Paul Downes and I’m a new member of the SISD Team this year. I have been educating for 9 years all together, 8 of which have been spent in schools here in the UAE. Dubai has become my second home and I am well accustomed to how diverse and intercultural this place really is. I have a major interest in all things associated with sport, so please don’t hesitate to have a conversation with me regarding that! I’m looking forward immensely to the coming year, adding what I can to an already great team.
