Al Ain school teaches the British syllabus
An Emirati toddler has received an eight-year scholarship worth $86,000 to study at a private school in Al Ain.
Hamdan al-Hassani, aged 3, won the scholarship
in a prize draw held by Al Ain International School at the al-Jimi Mall in Abu Dhabi.
Nilay Ozral, director of Aldar Academies, told The National that the extended scholarship would allow al-Hassani to complete all stages of primary education at the school.
The boy was given a tour of the school after the draw. "Hamdan is really excited about being here today," his father Khalfan al-Hassani said, "we're all looking forward to him joining," he added.
Al Ain International School opened in 2011 and offers the British national curriculum.
