GEMS students win excellence awards
Dubai, April 24, 2012
Ten students and a teacher from GEMS Education, which has a global network of schools, have been honoured with Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for distinguished academic performance.
With only 74 awards in the student category, this is the largest number of GEMS students ever to receive the award.
GEMS teacher Rana Khaleel, from the GEMS Wellington Academy, Silicon Oasis, has won in the best project category.
GEMS student winners are from Grade 5 to Grade 11, with three recipients from The Millennium School, Dubai, two students each from Our Own English High School, Sharjah, and Our Own English High School, Dubai and one student each from The Kindergarten Starters, GEMS Wellington International School, and Our Own English High School, Abu Dhabi.
“The Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for distinguished academic performance and Sharjah Educational Award for outstanding performance for academic excellence – are of particular importance to GEMS schools, because of their rigour in evaluating outstanding performance. GEMS students across the UAE are a fine example of what the youth of the region are capable of achieving,” said Margaret Atack, group senior director, GEMS Education. – TradeArabia News Service
