Al-Mubarakiya School marks 105th an­niver­sary

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: Al-Mubarakiya school, the first or­ga­nized ed­u­ca­tional fa­cil­ity in Kuwait, cel­e­brates its 105th an­niver­sary to­day. Opened on De­cem­ber 22, 1911, the school was founded in the era of the late Amir Sheikh Mubarak Al-Sabah. Around 77,000 Ru­pees of do­na­tions were gath­ered for its es­tab­lish­ment with the first head­mas­ter be­ing Sheikh Yousef bin Issa Al-Qanani. Some 254 stu­dents at­tended the school.

Ac­cord­ing to his­tor­i­cal sources, the idea for Al-Mubarakiya School stemmed from a meet­ing be­tween Yaseen Al-Tabtabai, Sheikh Yousef Al-Qanani, and Sheikh Nasser Mubarak Al-Sabah at Al-Qanani Di­wan dur­ing the an­niver­sary cel­e­brat­ing the birth of the Prophet Mo­ham­mad (PBUH).
