Mamoura British Academy, an Aldar Education school in Abu Dhabi, has been named as one of the top three contenders for the ‘World’s Best School Prizes’ in the environmental action category.
Aldar Education is the only education provider in the UAE and the Middle East to secure a place in this year’s top-three shortlist.
The journey towards sustainability at Mamoura British Academy began with humble recycling projects, which have since grown into a comprehensive sustainability program. Students and staff are engaged in recycling and promoting sustainable food practices. The school has also introduced sustainable farming modules featuring hydroponic gardens and innovative water fountains capable of converting air into safe drinking water.
Beyond these initiatives, Mamoura British Academy integrates sustainability into its core curriculum, such as the recently-introduced Industry Partnership Curriculum, which aims to provide students with opportunities to apply their learning in real-life contexts by establishing connections and collaborations with global companies.
Founded in 2022 by T4 Education, the World’s Best School Prizes recognize and celebrate schools demonstrating excellence in areas such as Community Collaboration, Environmental Action, Innovation, Overcoming Adversity, and Supporting Healthy Lives. Winners are selected by a Judging Academy from various sectors and are awarded $50,000 each.
