Sharjah English School marks graduation
Sharjah, May 26, 2010
Sharjah English School, one of the UAE’s oldest educational establishments, recently marked the first graduation of 11 students completing their A level studies.
Though Sharjah English was established as a primary school back in 1974, the secondary school only opened in 2005.
“These were the first students to come to the new campus at Sharjah University City,” said Paul Egan, head of Sixth Form.
“They were also the first to take GCSEs and now A Levels at the school,” he added.
“It’s a landmark in the history of the school”, said John Nolan, the principal. “Though we’ve always had an enviable reputation for the quality of students we produce, we now offer the full range of courses for students aged three up to 18.”
Michaela Longmore, departing head girl, and one of the gradating students, said: “The teachers have been great. And because we were such a small group, the friendships and bonds between students have been really close. That’s one of the things which is special about Sharjah English.”
“Shape the world to your unbounded imaginations, rather than let the world’s limitations define your horizons,” Nolan encouraged the students. – TradeArabia News Service
