Health Safeguarding and Clinics

It is our responsibility as special education teachers to ensure that every student benefits from his learning by creating an enabling environment that will help him gain understanding in the classroom and better health. We conduct health testing clinics for groups of students with disabilities, including ears for students with hearing impairment to be able to provide them with therapy, equipment to support learning in the classroom or medicine. However, the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) helps us identify the needs of each student in the classroom to enable them to learn more happily.

Gender Equality

We focus on gender and economic education for girls, especially those with special needs, by building them the ability to recognize their importance and advocate for change in society as well as having the opportunity to create groups to learn entrepreneurship education in practice while they are still in school.


Extracurricular activities benefits our pupils and students both in primary and secondary school beyond their further college application

In planning to start projects, we conduct preliminary interviews with teachers and students and heads of schools to get their opinions. Also, the main thing is to get the feedback of the stakeholders because their recommendations are important in getting a real evaluation of the implementation of the project. Their voices are always basic for advocating for changes.
