CEO says that this is the time for the community to come together
Al Najah Education has announced a 20% reduction in school fees at its popular Jumeirah based schools, Horizon English School and Horizon International School. The group is the first in the UAE to offer a relief plan to parents, which will apply to all Year groups for term three of the 2019/2020 academic year.
This announcement follows the recent update from the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) that the e-education system will be extended until the end of the current academic year, ending June 2020.
“Our success as a company is built on strong foundations of community spirit and a ‘child first’ approach – and in unprecedented times, communities need to pull together. With the discount, we are doing our part to help families through the hard times that lie ahead. Our schools will also make changes to the e-learning system to help parents cope with a longer distance learning period. This is a marathon now, not a sprint. We will make sure all the students catch up on lost learning when schools reopen, with extended classes and blended learning,” says Raza Khan, CEO of Al Najah Education
“Horizon English School maintains a child-centered teaching approach during this unprecedented time. Our teachers continue to provide an outstanding e-learning experience to all our students, and are fully equipped to continue this until the end of this academic year. We believe that this is the time that the community needs to come together and support each other in any and all ways possible,” says Ian Wallace, Headteacher at Horizon English School
“We remain committed to providing an e-learning programme to all of our students which is synonymous with the high standards at Horizon International School. This supportive plan will offer some relief to our parents and students in these unprecedented circumstances. Our staff are to be commended for their exceptional contributions to date, as well our parents for their dedication and adaptability during this time. All efforts are now focused to ensure we channel all our energies into maintaining a positive and successful end to this academic year,” says Darren Gale, Principal at Horizon International School
