This was announced here yesterday by Saleh Suleiman, FEZ acting Director General. He added that these classes were now ready to receive students when the new academic year begins.

He said this initiative was taken following the visit of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, who instructed that all the wooden classrooms should be replaced by permanent structures. Meanwhile, Saleh Suleiman added, that by 2007 all such temporary structures in various schools in the emirate would be replaced by proper, permanent, structures.

The Al Bedya School will be the first school, which will have all its wooden classrooms replaced. The ongoing maintenance works in some schools, since June this year, will be completed within the next few days.
