We don't want to shift Our Own Boys High School, Sharjah campus
Our Own boys High School, Sharjah
Sub: Petition against the sudden shifting of Our Own Boys High School, Sharjah from Muweilah to Al Juwaiza'a
This letter is to highlight the concerns of many parents whose wards are the students of your school.
We as the parents want the best for our children's education and perhaps that is the reason for choosing Gems Our Own Boys High School to shape the future of our kids.
However, the notice about the shifting of the school was shocking and has ended up with lots of worries, confusions and sleepless nights for all of us.
Firstly, the location is very far from the city and in a deserted area. Our children will be forced to spend more than 2 hours on the road, which is a serious concern for all the parents. Rather than spending the time on the road, our children should utilize that time for other productive activities.
Secondly, for any reason, if the parents need to visit the school, it is going to be very hectic. The conveyance of the parents will be chaotic, and they should pay hefty fee for the taxi and we are doubtful whether we can get any taxi or public transport to return to the city.
Thirdly, the area is deserted and lacking the infrastructure such as roads, public transport etc. Our children will suffer if it is a windy day or a rainy day or a sandstorm day. In addition to that the cement factory is nearby and the atmosphere will be filled with dust particles, which can cause serious health hazards to our wards.
Lastly, the notice period was so short and by the time we received the circular from the school, the other options were almost exhausted. Now we all are finding it extremely difficult to either continue or change the school. Please give us at least 8 to 10 month’s notice when you have such plans, which will also give us enough time to plan.
We want our kids to continue in Our Own Boys High School, Muweilah and hence we request you to consider this petition and continue the school in the current Muweilah campus.
Expecting a favorable action from your side.
