The first school is set to be built at US $6.5bn Aljada #megaproject in the heart of New Sharjah, #UAE. This is after Arada, the developer, awarded the contract to construct the first phase to Al Zamalek General Contracting. SABIS International School – Aljada, which is scheduled to open in September 2021, will be a member of the global SABIS Network, which also includes the #International Schools of #Choueifat around the world.
Work on the Aljada school has already begun, and construction will be completed in June 2021 in time for the start of the 2021-2022 school year in September. The first phase involves the construction of a kindergarten to Grade 3 (K-3) school. The second and third phases, which will add grade levels every year, will bring the school up to K-12 level with capacity for 4,000 students and will be completed in 2022 and 2023 respectively.
With a total value of about US $60m, the school will be the first of three based at Aljada, and will prepare students for success in both US- and UK-based external exams. It will be located on a 61,000 square metre plot on the south-eastern corner of the project, adjacent to the East Village residential community.
The state-of-the-art #campus includes spacious #classrooms, science and computer #laboratories, and a dedicated SABIS Integrated Testing and Learning (#ITL) Hall where students can take computerised exams. The campus will also house a theatre, cafeteria, library and extensive sports facilities, including a semi-Olympic swimming pool, an indoor basketball/tennis court, an outdoor basketball court and a full-size soccer field surrounded by a running track, providing students ample space to play the sports they love. There will be an independent Kindergarten section dedicated to the specific needs of children aged 3 to 5 with their very own indoor swimming pool, #multipurpose indoor court, play areas, and a special car track.
#SABIS International School – Aljada will be the second SABIS #Network school in Sharjah, and the fifteenth in the UAE. The history of SABIS in the UAE, and the Emirate of Sharjah, dates back to 1976, with the opening of The International School of Choueifat – Sharjah, the first SABIS school to operate outside #Lebanon. Today, SABIS #schools educate close to 30,000 students in the UAE, and over 70,000 students around the world. With an active presence in 20 countries on five continents, SABIS is committed to providing all students with a top-quality, international education that prepares them for success.
According to HE Sheikh #Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, #Chairman of Arada, world-class education is just one of the opportunities that Aljada offers to residents in this transformational community, and the partnership with SABIS® is proof of this. Work is progressing rapidly at a number of #different locations on the #Aljada site, and this contract award is evidence of the determination to push ahead with all the assets that will be required to deliver a fully integrated destination.
“This school symbolises Arada’s commitment to education, one of Sharjah’s most important sectors. Aljada’s location next to #University #City ensures that families can offer their children a high-class #education right the way through from kindergarten until the time they enter the workforce,” he added.
Located in the fast-growing Muwaileh district in the heart of New Sharjah, Aljada megaproject is a 24 million square foot master-planned destination that is set to transform the future of the #Emirate. #Construction on Aljada began in 2018 and the first homes are scheduled to be handed over to owners before the end of 2020.
