Three high school students got the surprise of their life on Thursday night after being congratulated personally by the Ruler of Dubai.
Aryam Al Kaabi, Taymaa Al Hazayma, and Hajar Al Batanouni, the UAE's top three female achievers, received personal phone calls by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai.
“I am happy to share with the high school top achievers their success and joy,” he said.
“Being aware of the value of knowledge and its role in improving our lives is critical to our success. Education will always remain the top priority of the government. Science and learning are key to the progress of nations.”
“Our investment in the future starts with preparing youth to achieve the highest levels of excellence. We have high ambitions for our youth and we will spare no effort in helping them tap their fullest potential.
The three pupils expressed their delight at receiving a call from Sheikh Mohammed. They said that his words were fatherly and he encouraged them to achieve further excellence in university.
Miss Al Kaabi and Miss Al Hazayma studied at the Mzeirea Girls School For Basic & Secondary Education in Ajman. Miss Al Batanouni is from Al Hilaliyaat Girls School For Basic & Secondary Education, also in Ajman.
