AMAB ‘Young Writers’ First Issue Published!

Budding young writers from Al Maha Boys’ Primary School Academy have shown their creative talents in the recently published and impressively presented first edition of the ‘Young Writers’ journal. Pupils were invited to write in response to a selection of themes, offering them the exciting prospect of discovering where their imaginations would take them!

Organised by school librarian Belal El Kholy, in partnership with Primary teachers, the intention is to engage the students and supplement Ta’allum’s commitment to literacy engagement and enjoyment of writing.

Highlights of the publication included 1F’s Faisal Dilaimi’s ‘How I Think Dinosaurs Became Extinct’ 2B’s Abdulla Nayef Al Emadi’s ‘I Wish I Could…’ poem, 4B’s Yousef Al Hasmi’s ‘The Lost Tunnel and 4D’s Nasser Mohammed with ‘The Sea, the Whale and Propet Yunus’ The boys used alternative forms of writing such as poetry.

Mr Shuja Uddin, Principal said ‘This is an excellent initiative which demonstrates how much we value and celebrate students’ work. The boys will be delighted and proud to see their efforts published in this way.’

Dr Mohammed Saefan said ‘I am very pleased to see this literacy initiative. The impact will be to further promote and stimulate students’ engagement in reading and writing. At Ta’allum we place great emphasis on Literacy. Children who read for pleasure are also most likely to succeed - in literacy, but also across the curriculum because of the way in which reading develops the ability to think in the abstract.’
