The National Archives Makes the Biography of the Mother of the Nation the Most Important Theme of the Student Historians Club’s Project.


The National Archives makes the biography of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, “the Mother of the Nation”, and her achievements the most prominent themes of scientific research of the 2nd Session of the Student Historians Club. That has increased the student attention towards the Mother of the Nation who succeeded in improving the lives of the Emirati women to become a real partner in building the nation.
Students managed to conduct research in the biography of Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, the great woman who has contributed to raising the Emirati women's capabilities in the various fields enabling them to occupy prominent status on the UAE and the Arab levels. She stood by the side of the late founding leader Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in supporting women, encouraging them to assume their rightful status and urging them to work and contribute in building the nation. Thus, women cadres were qualified to participate and interact to be in the front lines and bear responsibility.
On the other hand, students considered their visit to the Women's Union headquarters and the Family Development Foundation during their preparation of the articles for the historical magazine - as an important opportunity to familiarize themselves on the aspects of Sheikha Fatima achievements. In the visit their attention was attracted to decorations and medals displayed in Al Jawhara Hall at the union’s headquarters which Her Highness received in recognition of her achievements in the humanitarian work for the women and family both locally and at the level.
The schools which adopted the historical magazine as a project and participated with it in the 2nd Session of the Student Historians Club - started presenting it and its contents about Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, the Mother of the Nation, in the morning assembly and by that they infuse vitality and seriousness in the school day.
As the biography of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak and her noble qualities were the theme of the historical magazine, eight schools have competed to win the prize for the completion of this magazine. Both Glenelg School and Emirates National School for Girls, Mohammed bin Zayed City Branch won the first prize.
Mrs. Husniya Mohammed Al Ali, Head of the Educational Programs Section at the National Archives, confirmed the concern of the National Archives to direct student research towards highlighting the life, achievements and experiences of the UAE symbols and great leaders who spared no effort for the building and prosperity of the nation.  They symbolized work and the loyalty. Thus, students who represent the backbone of the future will become aware of those wonderful national experiences and take them as models to follow. This will ensure their adherence to the values of good citizenship, loyalty and belonging and at the same time, it will develop in them the methodology of scientific research, which is considered one of the reasons of the advancement of the country and improvement of the society.
