Updates for Primary Parents:

Please note, due to extremely high levels of KG students not being picked up by 12:30pm (the end of the KG day) by their parents, the following plan is in place until further direction is given by ADEK.

  1. KG instruction ends at 12pm. At 12pm students riding the bus will be escorted to the KG gym and at 12:15pm escorted to their bus. Students not riding the bus will remain in their KG classroom for a snack break until 12:30pm.
  2. Parents are encouraged to pick up their children between 12:00-12:30pm from their child’s KG classroom.
  3. At 12:30pm, KG teachers will escort non-bused students to the KG gym for parent check out. Children will be checked out one at a time for safety reasons. Parents will be assisted in order of arrival and we thank you in advance for your patience.

KG students not being picked up by parents by 12:30 is causing us to be out of compliance with labor law as we are not staffed to safely monitor 200+ students. The extremely high numbers of KG students not being picked up by 12:30pm is also forcing the school to cancel Grades 3-6 PE classes and to hold the students in the KG gym as it is the only air-conditioned area large enough to house the children and provide supervision with the staff we can spare.

Updates for Secondary Parents:

As a school we are following ADEK policy.  Students violating ADEK policy by ditching class, not wearing school uniform and using their personal cell phones will be held accountable by implementing the following plan:

  1. First Offense—Phone call home to parents and detention until 3pm in the Senior Gym the same day of the offense.
  2. Second Offense—Phone call home to parents, detention until 3pm in the Senior Gym the same day of offense, and a mandatory parent conference.
  3. Third Offense—Phone call home to parents, detention until a parent can pick up their child as they have earned a 1 day suspension.
  4. Fourth Offence—Phone call home to parents, detention until a parent can pick up their child as they have earned a 3 day suspension.
  5. Fifth Offence—Phone call home to parents, detention until a parent can pick up their child as they have earned a 5 day suspension.

General Director Message

Dear Parents and Students,

In the Name of Allah Most Merciful, Most Beneficent… Who has taught man what he did not know…(Quran: Sura Al Alaq) In this communication, it is my pleasure to address the latest scientific, technological and educational advancements currently under way in the Emirates which are reflected in the methodology and approach to education at AL Nahda National Schools. As founder of Al Nahda Schools, I have been committed, from the time of its inauguration over thirty years ago, to the dissemination of the educational vision of His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nayhan, currently making great advancements under the leadership of Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed AL Nayhan, both in terms of scientific developments and in terms of contribution to the nation’s cultural heritage. His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Rashed Al Maktoum, Vice-president of the UAE, sustains all his efforts in the endeavor to stay abreast of current and future technological and educational systems, of thought and action. I must also mention the Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed, with whom I worked in the Defense in my position as Director of the Military Schools. I am inspired as he forges all his effort in striving to lead major breakthroughs in the varied fields of industry, aviation, atomic energy and aeronautics. In brief, I wish to speak about Al Nahda National Schools’ contribution to the nation’s workforce. To date, Al Nahda Schools have graduated almost 6,000 students, many of whom have are in key positions serving the nation and the nation’s leaders. As the Hadith says, ‘Search for knowledge even if the knowledge is to be found in China.’ Our students have taken up appointments all over the world and have proven themselves successful wherever they go, in the exploration and the discovery of knowledge. In fact, one of our esteemed local students earned a renowned reputation for her expedition to the North Pole. Nowadays, the school population has exceeded 6500 students, I speak not to impress you, but to inform you about the truth of our realty. First and foremost, our priority is to provide quality education which we believe is given to you with the least financial constraint. Al Nahda School is currently the most well-established school in Abu Dhabi and is internationally accredited by educational authorities and at home enjoys national recognition with local and international educational institutions. I welcome you to our school and look forward to yet another successful year.  May Allah bless our Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed President of the United Arab Emirates.
