Omar Abbas - | Mix

In a bold move towards nurturing talent and fostering community engagement, the UAE has unveiled its ambitious 'Freejna School project'.

This initiative, set to empower 1,000 promising students across diverse disciplines, marks a significant leap in the country's educational landscape. The visionary project seeks to transform every government school into a vibrant hub of activity beyond regular school hours. It is not merely about academic enrichment but encompasses a holistic approach, incorporating fields such as science, literature, culture, sports, and art.

The project unfolds in three distinct phases, each crucial to its progression. The initial stage serves as a testing ground, activating community-centric activities in select government schools. Subsequently, a meticulous evaluation ensues, gauging the impact of the programs on students. Finally, the project aims for widespread adoption, extending its reach to encompass all government schools nationwide.

Cultivating Comprehensive Development

Mubarak Al Hammadi, acting head of the extracurricular activities department at the Emirates School Education Foundation, underscores the project's multi-faceted nature. It offers an array of activities and initiatives, from sports to cultural endeavors, aimed at nurturing well-rounded individuals. Notably, the 'Al Sanaa' program is designed to hone social skills among Emirati children, further enriching their educational experience.

Central to the project's ethos is the belief in strengthening familial and communal bonds. By transforming schools into inclusive community centers, it fosters cohesion and harmony. As Mubarak Al Hammadi emphasizes, the school becomes a focal point for family gatherings, encouraging active participation in post-school activities.

Sarah bint Yousif Al Amiri, Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology, envisions the Freejna School project as a transformative force in the national education sector. It aligns seamlessly with the country's overarching vision for educational reform, promising far-reaching societal impact.

Utilizing current resources and infrastructure is the foundation of the project. Modern amenities in schools operate as stimulants for positive interaction and a range of participation. The project seeks to promote harmony and collaboration among educators, students, families, and community stakeholders by offering a secure and easily accessible environment.

The Freejna School project holds the promise of inclusivity, offering opportunities for every student to thrive. By tapping into diverse interests and talents, it ensures that no potential goes untapped. Moreover, the project's emphasis on community involvement ensures that families play an active role in their children's educational journey.

A Beacon of Innovation

At its core, the Freejna School project symbolizes the UAE's commitment to innovation and progress. By reimagining the role of schools as dynamic hubs of learning and collaboration, it sets a precedent for educational excellence worldwide. Through ongoing evaluation and adaptation, it promises to evolve and adapt to meet the changing needs of students and society.

The Freejna School project stands as a testament to the UAE's unwavering commitment to educational excellence and community empowerment. Through its innovative approach, it not only shapes the future of education but also cultivates a cohesive and inclusive society poised for success. As it unfolds across the nation, it holds the promise of transforming not just schools but entire communities, paving the way for a brighter tomorrow.
