The AAEZ Director Engineer, Nabil Salih Al Dhahry, said that 21 sports teachers had also been recruited at the zone schools. "Fifteen of the expatriate teachers are from Egypt and Jordan," said Al Dhahry, adding that two arts and drawing instructors have joined the AAEZ staff.

A new school called Bin Ham School will also be opened. In accordance with the Ministry of Education's policy to provide students with the best possible academic environment, six new buildings, housing four kindergartens, a model school for girls and Islamic Institute, will be constructed by the end of August.

The Department of Works will commission the new buildings, as part of the efforts to phase out old ones.

Al Dhahry said that the kindergartens in Um Ghafa, Al Yaher, Al Dhahir-1 and Al Dhahir-2 would be set up to separate kindergartens from primary schools.

"The Islamic Institute will be moved to one of the new buildings in September," he added.

Earlier, Al Dhahry visited various schools in Al Ain to check the status of the maintenance work, which, he said, was being carried out successfully.

The AAEZ has asked the Department of Works to ensure that contractors concerned are carrying out maintenance operations wherever necessary before the start of the new academic year in September, he said.
