    The National Accreditation for Healthy Schools program is a program initiated by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ministry of Education (MOE) aimed to create health promoting environments within Jordanian schools that reflect positively on student’s physical and social growing, as well as on their academic performance.

    Rosary School participated in this program back in 2009. The school first received the Bronze level of accreditation which indicated that the school has achieved 60% in every chapter of the accreditation chapters during the first year of participation in the program.

    The year after, Rosary School was accredited with the Silver level of accreditation which indicated that the school has achieved 75% in every chapter of the accreditation chapters during the second year.

    We are proud to announce that we are currently accredited with the Gold level of accreditation indicating that the school has achieved 90% in every chapter of the accreditation chapters during the third year of participating in the program. Now, we are officially announced by the Royal Society for Health Awareness, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education as a healthy school.

  • Eco-Schools Program is a program created by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), a non-profit organization that uses environmental education as a method to encourage environmental sustainability.

    The program gives students the opportunity to take an active role in running their school in an environmental friendly manner, and be responsible citizens in making decisions that directly affect the school environment.

    An important part of the Eco Schools program is the participation of local residents, parents and school staff members in which it creates an integrated community perfect for raising awareness aimed at improving the environment of the local community.

    What is MUN?
    MUN is a conference similar to the United Nations in which students participate as delegates to various UN Committees. Participants research and formulate political positions based on the actual policies of the countries they represent.Model UN is a powerful educational tool that offers highly valuable benefits to students.

    Model UN motivates students to learn.
    On an emotional level, Model UN is a motivational experience. It’s fun to pretend being a world leader solving the world’s most important problems in 48 hours or less. Model UN activates students’ imagination and creativity – activities that students are naturally inclined to do.

    Students enjoy exploring new places, sharing common experiences with teammates and friends, and making new friends with smart and interesting students from other schools – which includes the best and the brightest from other countries.

    Students joke that “MUN is F-U-N,” but it’s true – that’s why it works so well. Students attend Model UN conferences because it’s fun – they just happen to learn something along the way. When students have fun while learning, what they learn is more likely to stick.

    Model UN builds confidence and leadership skills.
    Many students who are so scared to speak at their first conference become active participants in committees and in the classroom.

    Students develop confidence and leadership skills through experience. Model UN conferences are opportunities to practice research, public speaking, teamwork, negotiation, and writing skills in a safe and structured environment.

    Model UN teaches students about the world.
    In this era of globalization, learning about the world is more important than ever. No matter what field or profession students enter, they will interact with people from different countries and diverse backgrounds. Problems taking place halfway around the globe impact our lives, our country, and our communities.

    Students learn about the world as they prepare for Model UN conferences, represent countries other than their own, and present possible solutions to global problems in committees. Students also learn by meeting people from other countries and travel to places they’ve never been before.

    Model UN helps students get into college.
    Model UN provides students with the learning and leadership experiences that Admission officers look for. The depth of these experiences serves as possible material for personal essays and interviews. Model UN is also an extensive network of alumni at top colleges.

    The biggest benefit of Model UN goes beyond the classroom and the conference – it happens at home. We often meet parents who are new to Model UN that are so surprised when their child comes home from school one day and starts talking about the situations in the Middle East. At conferences, we watch parent chaperones beaming with pride after seeing their child make a speech in a committee. We also see parents who visit a conference to show support for their son or daughter, the Secretary-General.

    About Our activity with Rosary Marj Elhamam MUN
    Rosary Marj Elhamam delivers MUN workshops so that students are well prepared for the MUN conferences.

    We participated in national Model United Nations that was held in the Dead Sea, Jordan and with our elite students we have won a good deal of “best delegates” certificates.

    Next step in MUN to go global
    Next October, our delegate will participate in ROSMUN in Beit Hanina, Jerusalem and then our delegates will be going to Europe and all over the world.

    Our own conference
    Our own conferences will be held every year as soon as students are ready to run it.

    What many people don’t realize?
    Model UN also teaches business skills – running a conference is like running a small business that involves finding “customers” (delegates), developing a “product” (the conference), and managing peers.

    • JOMEC It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to become a politician and I have always imagined myself giving speeches in front of esteemed groups of people and tackling all of the world’s problems in front of my bedroom mirror. During the three days we spent attending the annual JOMEC Model United Nations, held in the Dead Sea, we gained an experience that will last with us a lifetime. We were given the privilege of representing countries from all over the world and filling the shoes of their high ranked diplomats as we debated many thought provoking topics that are currently on the forefront of the United Nations’ agenda like climate change for example.

      The atmosphere was incredible and we got to meet lots of new people from different schools creating knowledge bridges as well as firm friendships. The invited guests were Arab scholars of the highest pedigree as they would engage with us in lengthy conversations amazing us with their ideas and ways of thinking. We learnt a lot about respecting other people’s opinions while respectfully presenting our own in a manner that fits the MUN code of conduct. We also learnt to look at issues from different perspectives to reach the best possible solutions for the people even if these perspectives come from people not of our own origins and having different cultures and traditions than us.

      Whether it was that thrill of standing on the podium and delivering your opening speech, the people and the atmosphere around you, or that voice in the back of your head letting you know that you have to seize the opportunity given to you when you are presented to speak as the delegate of the country you are representing, this experience is surely not one to forget for all the right reasons. On behalf of the participating students from the graduating Class “A2” 2013, I would like to thank our dear principal Sister Lilia Al Nimri, Mrs. Zena Akroush and Mrs. Lamis Fakhoury for making all of this possible and giving us the opportunity to develop as students, learners, and human beings.

      JOMEC 2013
    • Globel MUN 2014 Having read the title, you’re probably wondering what MUN is about. MUN is short for Model United Nations. In an MUN conference, each participant role-plays as a diplomat who represents a nation, which they had already researched, in a simulated UN debating session.

      Aiming at bringing up young men and women who can clearly express their opinions and effectively maneuver within debates, our school participated in the second GlobeMUN conference, which was held in the Dead Sea, with a selection of students from grades ten, eleven and twelve and in which several international affairs were discussed in four different committees; the security council, the general assembly, the ECOSOC and the human rights committee.

      Many of the participants agreed that it had been the most fun three days of their lives! But meeting new people and making new friendships were only part of the experience as they were accompanied by learning the art of discussion with abidance by the MUN code of conduct as well as listening to the inspirational speeches of senior Jordanian figures during the opening ceremony.

      Our school has grown accustomed to its students standing out in such activities, which was nothing short of noticeable when two of our students, Basel Zaatarah, representing Russia in the ECOSOC, and Marah Al Hasan, representing Guatemala in the General Assembly, won best delegate rankings.

      Finally, we would like to thank our beloved school principal Sr. Lilia Al Nimri for giving us the opportunity to participate in this event as well as our dear teachers Mrs. Lamis Fakhoury, Mrs. Aram Akroush and Mrs. Zena Akroush for their continual support and encouragement.

    In our efforts to implement the best quality management system and improve our educational services for our beloved students, we have adopted the International Organization of Standardization (ISO 9001: 2008). We are proud to announce that we are one of the few schools in Jordan that have successfully implemented a quality management system in accordance with the ISO 9001:2008 standards.

    By applying the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system we strengthen our commitment to quality and the formation of a culture of excellence.

    Rosary School - Marj El Hamam have decided to build on the success of ISO9001 management systems in registering an occupational health and safety system OHSAS 18001 for its existing health and safety programs. The real challenge is to fully integrate the quality, environmental, health and safety management systems into one system.

    OHSAS 18001 is the latest certification specification for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. And registration to OHSAS 18001 by an independent, third party, certification body demonstrates a commitment to implement, maintain and improve the way in which the school manage its Health and Safety system. It establishes commitment to provide a safe working environment and to protect students and teachers. It aims at reducing and preventing accidents and accident related loss of life, equipment, time and damage to environment.

    Registering school to OHSAS 18001 give more confidence about meeting the requirements of Health and Safety legislation. The setting of targets through the Health and Safety policy, together with the ongoing measurement against it to ensure a process of continual improvement.

    We at Rosary School have a proud tradition of service to our community.

    Working together, our students learn how to solve problems, make decisions and positively contribute to their community.

    We believe that raising generations and preparing them for a better future requires a broad vision that answers one important question: What is the most important aspect educators should focus on?

    Also, we believe that strengthening morals and virtues in our students’ hearts is important. Therefore, Rosary students are encouraged to contribute, as far as possible, to serving their community. This can be achieved by assisting our students carry out all sorts of activities whose objective is to give to those “to whom it is due”.

      Community service at the Rosary School-Marj Elhamam rotates around serving different organizations:
    • Our Lady of Peace Center
    • Al-Aydi Al-Wae'da Association

    * Missionaries of Charity

    * Eradeh / for Children and Youth Diabetes

    * Caritas Jordan

    Rosary students are raised to believe in the importance of giving and accordingly, live a life that is worth a living as Albert Einstein said, "Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile."

    * Seize the occasions with human and social implications, and activate them by organizing initiatives and activities.
