Our Own Fujairah exemplifies social responsibility in Year of Giving

‘We Rise by Lifting Others’

Our Own English High School - Fujairah has always been committed to the values of hospitality and generosity, which lie at the heart of both the U.A.E.’s identity and its ambitious Year of Giving programme.

 

Corporate social responsibility, volunteering and serving the nation have all been embedded in the value systems of GEMS and Our Own English High School, with ‘Team Fujairah’ also having been recognised on the global stage when it won the prestigious SEWA Pioneer Award.

 

As a part of the Year of Giving, the school’s students have gathered up essentials such as rice, cereals, oil, sugar, soap, toothpaste and other such goodies through a collection drive amongst the school community. All goodies and essentials collected were packed in hundreds of bags for distribution among the support staff of the school, the drivers and hundreds of labourers at the FujEng Labour Camp, Fujairah. It was humbling to see students from every class contributing products in huge quantities, and then beaming with happiness as they handed over the bags to the labourers and support staff. As a part of the programme, the little ones from the Kindergarten gave away the bags of essentials to the support staff on their Sports Day while the entire school led by the student council came forward to share their goodies with the support staff and drivers on an evening of Community Iftar celebrated at Our Own Fujairah.

 

The hundreds of labourers at Fuj Eng, in particular, were overwhelmed by this magnificent gesture, as the students, who visited the camp along with some teachers and the Headmaster, gleefully handed over the packs.

 

The Principal, Mr. Himmat S Dhillon, thanked the parents and the students for their generosity and urged them to carry out more such humanitarian activities as part of the Year of Giving.
