Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Our Own English High School Sharjah, Boys is set to migrate to a new, state-of-the-art campus in Al Juwaizah, currently the home of GEMS New Our Own Private High School, Sharjah. Set to be completed by the start of the 2019-20 academic year in April 2019, the move will bring numerous new opportunities and expand the choice of elective subjects and extra-curricular activities.
The new campus has larger classrooms, superior games facilities and outdoor play areas, as well as a high-quality multi-purpose hall, canteen, dining space, library, laboratories, prayer rooms, conference facilities, and other features. It is an impressive, purpose-built campus with more than 3,000 sqm of additional space to improve the learning experience of all students.
Mr Srivalsan Murugan, Principal and CEO of Our Own English High School Sharjah, Boys, said: “We strongly believe that this move will significantly benefit our students, enabling us to keep them enthused, engaged, and inspired by offering a well-equipped learning environment that is enhanced with state-of-the-art facilities and a range of high-tech learning tools and educational resources. We appreciate the support received from our parent community, and look forward to continuing to deliver the highest quality education to all learners.”
GEMS Education has taken a number of steps to minimise any disruption caused by the move to the campus in Al Juwaizah, a spacious new suburb 15 kilometres from Sharjah International Airport and 10 kilometres from Sharjah National Park. Steps include offering students school bus services as per existing arrangements and providing full assistance to families who do not wish to relocate or for whom the merger is disagreeable.
Following the move, the faculty of the combined school will be made up of teachers from both Our Own English High School Sharjah, Boys and GEMS New Our Own Private High School, Sharjah. GEMS Education has optimised use of all available space at the new campus, allowing for ample provision to meet the highest standards of educational needs for all students.
