This year, Al-Durrah International School has taken the leap to go green! As part of this initiative, we are raising awareness on the importance of recycling and the positive impact it has on the environment and the community. We are encouraging our students to care for the environment and adopt this mission as their own.
As a first step in going green, we are participating in the Cans Collection Drive for recycling in association with the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG). Students from KG1 to grade 11 are requested to collect aluminium cans to be sent to the EEG office before the end of the campaign on 29th of October, with support from their parents, teachers and staff.
The winning school/organization will be awarded based on the weight in kilograms of the collected cans during the campaign period and will receive a special certificate of participation. Al Durrah International School will also reward the class that collects the most number of cans with a trip of their own choice.
Our students’ security and safety is a top priority at Al Durrah International School. To prepare and train our students for an emergency evacuation and to ensure the accuracy of the planned procedures, a fire drill has been conducted on Tuesday 25th Oct 2016 in coordination with the Civil Defense Department.
Al Durrah International School would like to extend its sincere thanks to the Civil Defense team and fire-fighters who responded to our request and participated with us. Their high-level professionalism was very commendable. They even commented to us that our evacuation went very smooth and was highly successful.
Response time was 3.2 minutes
