The “Memory of the Nation” exhibition receives academic and recreational visits by more than 4,000 students


The NA pavilion, dubbed the “Memory of the Nation” exhibition, at Sheikh Zayed Heritage Festival received academic and recreational visits by more than 4,000 students.
More than 4,000 students in different academic stages paid academic and recreational visits to the “Memory of the Nation” exhibition in the NA’s pavilion at Sheikh Zayed Heritage Festival over the last few days. They learned about aspects of the UAE’s history and the achievements of its people and great leaders. These aspects complement and enrich the national curriculums. In the provision of such reliable historical information, the NA draws on modern and exciting technology, which makes such information more effective. Through its programs, the NA aspires to enhance loyalty, the sense of belonging and national identity among students and to gear them up toward pursuits advocated by the directives of the wise leadership. During their visit to the “Memory of the Nation” exhibition, the students will take a tour of its various sections, learn about the historical documents and their importance, and get an overview of UAE’s National Archives and its role in collecting and preserving the memory of the nation for future generations. Moreover, students will be informed about the considerable attention to education paid by the founder Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, which had been given top priority in his thinking and approach. To this end, he went to great lengths to support learning inside and outside the UAE, and encourage successive generations to study and excel in their academic performance. He drew up growth plans that have been instrumental in the development of education and eradication of illiteracy.
In the education section at the “Memory of the Nation” exhibition, the student delegations were apprised of the NA’s modern educational techniques involving games and fun activities. They expressed their admiration for the values tree board, which caught their attention, because it embodied national values and icons such as the national identity, good citizenship, the founder, historical knowledge, loyalty to the leadership and the Nation, positive thinking, tolerance, innovation, moral values and scientific research.
It is worth mentioning that the holdings of the “Memory of the Nation” exhibition focus on important aspects of the UAE’s history and heritage. Through such holdings, the NA seeks to inform students of the glorious past of their fathers and ancestors, using techniques that stir up their interest and capture their imagination. Moreover, such techniques reinforce students’ emotional and moral bond to their history and heritage and make them proud of their bright present. By playing such a role, the NA has become a key partner in the national education process and in preparing a new generation whose thoughts and values are consistent with those of the founding fathers and the directives of the wise leadership.
