Leading Sharjah developer Arada has announced that work has begun on Phase Two of the Sabis International School (SIS) project located at its residential community, Aljada.
SIS has opened its doors in time for the 2021-2022 academic year welcoming students in pre-kindergarten through primary school to its 60,000 sq m campus, which boasts its own indoor swimming pool, shaded play area and an indoor multipurpose hall.
The construction contract for the Phase Two project, which was valued at over AED100 million ($27.23 million), was awarded to ASGC.
With work making steady progress, it is likely to be completed during the summer of 2022 in time for the next academic year.
The second phase of SIS-Aljada will facilitate the welcoming of pupils up to Grade 12, thus taking its total capacity to over 3,500 students.
Upon full completion, SIS-Aljada’s world-class facilities will include science and computer laboratories, a performance hall and extensive sports facilities including a semi-Olympic pool, an indoor basketball/tennis court, an Olympic soccer field and an athletics track, said the statement.
SIS-Aljada is the latest in a long line of Sabis schools in the UAE, and the second in Sharjah, joining The International School of Choueifat-Sharjah, the opening of which in 1975 marked the launch of the very first Sabis school outside Lebanon.
"Like all schools in the network, SIS-Aljada will implement the proven, proprietary Sabis Educational System that is designed to give students the solid foundation of knowledge and 21st century skills they will need to achieve success in university and in life," noted Sabis Vice-President Victor Saad.
"Proprietary, innovative, digital technology embedded into the programme will give students an edge in ensuring their academic success. From E-books and Interactive Boards to the Sabis Digital Platform, the integrated technologies are available at school and at home guaranteeing that learning never stops," he stated.
"As our second school in Sharjah, Sabis-Aljada is a testament to our continued dedication and commitment to offering students in the emirates an outstanding education that prepares them for success in the future,” he added.
Arada CEO Ahmed Alkhoshaibi said: “This is one of the most important milestones in our journey to make Aljada a truly comprehensive living experience for families."
"With its outstanding teaching system and next-generation facilities, SIS-Aljada is an exceptional asset for the local community and is also in keeping with Sharjah’s commitment to providing a world-class education for all, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
