National Archives and Emirates National Schools Evaluate "National Identity" Projects


The National Archives and Emirates National Schools concluded evaluation of "National Identity" projects, third session.  The annual evaluation resulted in the winning of Emirates National Schools, Mohammed Bin Zayed Group (Girls), for its distinguished participation in two projects: "Our Language, Our Identity" and "Role of Emirati Woman", from a selection of national, social, and health short listed projects.

Ninth grade girls filled Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Hall with all of their projects, using multi-media technology. Parents and other visitors toured the Hall and enjoyed all projects, especially that parents were able to follow the efforts of their daughters and vote immediately and electronically on the importance of their projects.
At the end of the evaluation ceremony, the National Evaluation Committee complemented the projects of the female students, which promise of a generation that understands its duties and responsibilities towards the country, and is keen to abide by the criteria in selecting the subject, the content of the research and the presentation of the project.
