Dubai, September 24, 2013
A new CBSE syllabus school promoted by prominent non-resident Indians (NRIs) has been announced in Dubai and will open in the next academic year.
Credence High School will be one of the few schools in the region that will follow the innovative XSEED programme of learning promoted by iDiscoveri, a widely acclaimed academic solution that focuses on collaborative learning and experiential educational programmes.
Promoters of the school include Nalapad Ahmed Abdulla, managing director, Nalapad Group Overseas, Sameer K Mohammed, managing director, Jaleel Holdings and Dr Azad Moopen, chairman of DM Healthcare and MIMS India.
Dr Moopen said: “With the innovative XSEED programme, Credence will foster learning that is enjoyable. At Credence, we will be focusing on moulding a child across academic and non-academic spheres with equal verve and nurturing a sense of social commitment in children so that they learn to contribute to the society.”
“The school’s academic faculty is handpicked from reputed educational institutions within the UAE and India,” he added.
Credence High School has one of the best-in-class infrastructures that support the theme of excellence which binds its mandate. In its full capacity the school could accommodate over 3,000 students.
“We are entering the academic year with a completed infrastructure that we can claim to be most modern and sophisticated in the school education domain of Dubai,” Abdulla said.
Class rooms are equipped with the latest interactive tools and come with a technology backbone that deploys an array of IT gadgets that are imperative for collaborative and experiential learning, he added.
Some of the features of Credence High School include a library with a museum ambience, state-of-the-art IT rooms, a 5,000 sq ft fully air conditioned dance and drama hall with wooden flooring, a highly equipped indoor auditorium spread over 14,000 sq ft that can accommodate 1,500 students which will also have sports facilities like tennis and badminton as well as an athletic sized swimming pool.
The school’s sports facilities include a FIFA approved football pitch with artificial grass, full length cricket pitch with flood lights, international standard volleyball and basketball courts and a six-lane athletic track including a 100 metre dash track.
Mohamed said: “We have conceived and developed Credence as an exceptional educational institution. It comes with an array of attributes that are new to the school education scenario in Dubai.”
“Excellence across all spheres - be it academic or non-academic- a vision to instill the significance of education as a continuing journey and a commitment to innovate are some of the differentiators of Credence,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
