  • Regent International School principal is Danny Lyons? A Gulf News / Xpress report 25 June 2010 about the school not letting children inside during break time unless the outside temperature was over 42° Celcius (about 1 million° Fahrenheit) referred to the principal as Danny Lyons. RIS website doesn't give the head's name.
  • The report quoted an email from Mr Lyons saying "Our policy has been discussed at senior level, and remains that students will have outdoor play until temperatures rise above 42 degrees."
  • However, to be fair to him, the school might change things. He said to Xpress "We have listened to the valid issues raised and acted. We will discuss our policy on what temperatures pupils should be allowed out after the end of term."
