Abu Dhabi, 20 June 2020:   ADNOC Schools, operated in partnership with Aldar Education, have celebrated ground-breaking achievements by its graduating Class of 2020.


Thanks to Aldar Education's innovative approach to distance learning, the students' final three months of the academic year have also proven very successful. The leading education provider revealed that a record number of the 249 Year 12 students will be going on to higher education at university – a total of 95 per cent.


In separate virtual ceremonies, Mr Ghannam Al Mazrouei, Chairman of ADNOC Schools Board of Trustees for all campuses, congratulated the Class of 2020 in a personal video message to all graduates.


The graduates, their families and school teachers, also heard from Sahar Cooper, CEO of Aldar Education, who praised them for their outstanding results, efforts and determination during the course of their studies. Aldar Education has supported the three campuses in Abu Dhabi by providing first-class academic curricula and assistance as part of its collaboration with ADNOC Schools. 


The day of celebration also saw the principals of Sas Al Nakhl (Dr. Kate Sutton Jones), Madinat Zayed (Wendy Birch) and Al Ruwais (Wendy Brock) deliver inspiring messages to their respective students. In total, 170 graduated from Sas Al Nakhl, 23 from Al Ruwais and 56 from Madinat Zayed.

 
During their time at ADNOC Schools, the out-going graduates, who are both Emirati and resident expat students, have been well prepared to reach their highest potential in the future. As part of ADNOC Schools' mission to deliver world-class STEM-focused education, all students at ADNOC Schools benefit from academic and extra-curricular activities as well as different partnerships such as the Kumon Learning Programme, Lego Innovation, and Yas in Schools.


The Class of 2020 will now embark on the next stage of their life with 95 per cent of students set to continue their education at university. A total of 80 per cent will attend an institution based in the UAE with the remaining graduates studying around the world, including at major institutions such as the University of Sheffield in the UK, Brown University and The University of Arizona in the United States, Dublin College, Ireland as well as the University of Tokyo, Japan.
 
Mr. Ghannam Al Mazrouei, Chairman of ADNOC Schools Board of Trustees, said: “We are very proud of our ADNOC Schools' achievements. Most of our 2020 graduates will go on to study a wide range of STEM programmes at leading universities in more than 17 countries, adding value to the UAE's future development and enriching our national talent pool.
 
“In addition to our outstanding academic programmes, we foster an atmosphere where the students can develop leadership and interpersonal skills through an array of extra-curricular activities including entry into competitions, events and awards, as well as special contributions via volunteering and CSR initiatives. 
 
“Today, we are reaping the fruits of our determination to produce well-rounded graduates and I am sure our students and parents are incredibly appreciative of our continuing efforts and focus on student wellbeing and achievement.”
 
Sahar Cooper, CEO of Aldar Education, said: “Graduating is a significant milestone that students will remember for the rest of their lives and I couldn't be prouder of all of them. We are especially delighted to see record numbers of students looking to pursue higher education opportunities at home and overseas.
In our partnership, Aldar Education and ADNOC Schools share the same goal of delivering the best possible education opportunities and empowering the next generation. The graduates of the Class of 2020 are an example of what can be achieved through hard work and commitment, and they can now follow in the footsteps of previous alumni who have gone on to have a bright future.”
