Dar Al Marefa hosts Appreciation Ceremony Featured

16 September 2022, United Arab Emirates:

Last month we wrapped up our new Work Immersion Programme, held in collaboration with Dar Al Marefa Private School - Dubai, which was a huge success for the school students and our colleagues alike! The programme enabled the students to realise their future career aspirations, in a true work environment, as they were exposed to roles and functions related to their fields of interest. As a pre-requisite to completing CAS (Creativity, Action, Service) hours towards their diplomas, students were able to gain practical industry knowledge, under the guidance of industry professionals across our business.

This week, in an Appreciation Ceremony held at the school campus in Al Khawaneej, we celebrated the achievements of the students during the programme, and recognised their commitment and dedication towards the experience. The ceremony was hosted by Naira Hamdy, School Principal at Dar Al Marefa, and attended by Dr. Arturo Lujan, CEO of AG Ventures, and Debra Teles, Group Vice President, People and Culture, Al Ghurair Investment. Students received certificates to commemorate completion of the programme, and had the opportunity to share their feedback about how it has empowered them along their educational journeys.

One student commented: “I had a great experience participating in Al Ghurair’s Work Immersion Programme and was happy to collaborate with supportive people who really helped me explore and discover my future career dreams! I greatly encourage the future senior class at Dar Al Marefa to participate in Al Ghurair’s work programme next year!”

Naira Hamdy, School Principal at Dar Al Marefa comments: “I am so proud of the students who submerged themselves in this valuable experience at Al Ghurair. Their enthusiasm and dedication will surely continue to take them to new heights and excel in achieving their dreams. I value the student’s positive feedback, expressing their gratitude for facilitating this experience. I am honoured to have been part of this initiative to empower student along their educational journeys and drive our Group-wide purpose of striving towards our pursuit for the better – nurturing young minds and empowering the next generation of leaders.”
