#Haq Al Laila

The 15th day of the month of Sha’aban, the eighth month of the Islamic calendar, is marked as Haq Al Laila in the UAE. Emirati children across the country celebrate this day by going around their neighborhoods, collecting sweets, nuts and treats to fill their tote bags, known as Kharyta. Other than celebrating, the purpose of the event is to educate the public about the occasion and the month of Ramadan. 

Thank you to our wonderful parents for their generosity and for educating us about this special day and for helping us to experience this event! 


Transdisciplinarity is upheld when…

Grade 5 students can write a business plan in Language Arts lessons…

Followed by experiential learning by executing a business fair!

Just like in real life, we accept help from our loved ones.

We engage the youth and our peers.
We adjust our presentation according to our audiences to gain the most from our investment! When we enter Middle School next year, we’ll be ready for the “Dragon’s Den”!

Students leading conferences 

Spending time in my child’s workplace reiterates the value I place in her. 

When I demonstrates that I don’t know everything, I humanize myself and can expect greater compassion from my child.When my child leads me through his learning, I give him confidence, building his self-esteem.

Many adults including the teacher are present, but the child owns the conference.

I validate my child’s work experiences like this. 

Public transport?

Catching the Metro back to school from a field trip when “the school buses don’t turn up” is real world experiential learning. 

‘Reflections on Happiness and Positivity’

Our Arabic teachers attended the “Ladies Lounge” attended the interactive session to discuss his Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum book “Reflections on Happiness and Positivity” on the occasion of world happiness day at “Positive Energy Readinf Gallery” in Zabeel Park.
