The Al Futtaim Education Foundation would like to extend its heartfelt congratulations to Class of 2021 and all graduate students from both Deira International School and Universal American School.
We were so delighted to see all our graduates and their families during a special graduation ceremony* that took place on June 23 at Intercontinental Dubai Festival City. The event was held under the patronage of Mr. Omar A. Al Futtaim, CEO and Vice Chairman of Al-Futtaim Group, Chairman of Al Futtaim Education Foundation.
The event was attended by Mr. Omar A. Al Futtaim, CEO and Vice Chairman of Al-Futtaim Group, Chairman of Al Futtaim Education Foundation and Ms. Mira Al Futtaim. Honourable guests at the event included H.E. Dr. Anwar Mohammed Gargash and members of the Al Futtaim Education Foundation, the schools’ governing body, and members of the DIS and UAS Boards.
Graduation day is the day every student has dreamed about, and one of the finest milestones to commemorate for the Al Futtaim Education Foundation. We are so proud of your accomplishments, both as individuals and as cohorts. Our Class of 2021 is one of the most successful cohorts we have seen, across our schools, in the history of the Foundation. We are extremely proud to have played a role in developing these young individuals and setting them up for their further journey and success.
The Chairman’s Leadership Award was presented by Ms. Mira Al Futtaim to Mya Msuya from Universal American School for having forwarded the school through her actions and leadership. Joined by Mr. Fadi Hammadeh, Al Futtaim Education Foundation and Chairman of the DIS and UAS Board, Ms. Mira Al Futtaim also presented the Valedictorian Award to Krishna Mashruwala from Deira International School.
The challenges for the Class of 2021 have been immense. While we commend your resilience and determination, we are also very grateful for your patience and flexibility. This year’s graduation event was particularly special since it was the first time during the pandemic that we were able to gather as a community.
We are so thankful that so many of you were able to join us on this special day, and we would also like to express our sincerest appreciation for all your support to our community throughout the past year.
