The Gulf Today - - HOME - BY IM­RAN MO­JIB

Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Mak­toum, pres­i­dent of the Dubai Civil Avi­a­tion Au­thor­ity, CEO and Chair­man of the Emi­rates Group, in­au­gu­rated the newly-con­structed B-block and other fa­cil­i­ties at the In­dian High School (IHS), se­nior cam­pus, Dubai, on Sun­day.

Dr Ab­dulla Al Karam, Chair­man of the Board of Di­rec­tors and Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the Knowl­edge and Hu­man De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (KHDA), Dubai, and Vipul, Con­sul Gen­eral of In­dia in Dubai, were present at the event as the Guests of Hon­our.

Wel­com­ing Sheikh Ahmed, who is also pa­tron of the school, IHS chair­man Su­nil Um­rao Singh re­called how the school’s foun­da­tion stone was laid by Um­rao Singh in 1968. Half-a-cen­tury later, the school has built yet an­other block with mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties.

The new fa­cil­i­ties were in­au­gu­rated with a lot of cel­e­bra­tion and ex­cite­ment amongst the stu­dents and staff.


Along with the new build­ing, Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Mak­toum also un­veiled the spec­tac­u­lar Wall Mu­ral that relects on the de­grad­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions. Show­ing sup­port for a greener earth, three saplings were planted at the lo­ca­tion by the stu­dents.

Along with, the new bas­ket­ball court was also de­clared open by Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Mak­toum by sign­ing the bas­ket­ball.


The new block at IHS has been built giv­ing spe­cial con­sid­er­a­tion for the peo­ple of de­ter­mi­na­tion.

The build­ing will have 28 class­rooms, a ca­reer guid­ance cen­tre, a ra­dio stu­dio, a me­dia depart­ment, “The Hap­pi­ness Hall­way,” two par­ent/ coun­selor meet­ing rooms. In a irst-ofits-kind ini­tia­tive, the new block will also have a “De­sign Cen­tre” to in­spire a new gen­er­a­tion of as­pir­ing coders.

At last, the star bad­minton player of the In­dian High School, Tan­isha Crasto, was awarded a cheque of Dhs25,000 by Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Mak­toum for her out­stand­ing achieve­ments.
