SHARJAH: Fatima Bint Abdulmalik School pocketed Dhs10,000 for winning the second edition of Lughati Cup held at Lughati’s stand during the ongoing Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF).

Lughati is a first-of-its-kind initiative launched in 2013 by His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, to support Arabic learning the smart way, by leveraging the latest technology with custom-designed contemporary educational programmes.

Fatima School topped 32 schools, a number that has increased from 24 that participated when the Cup was launched last year during SIBF.

“It proves the keenness of teachers and schools in the benefits of Lughati, enhancing readiness and preparation for this competition,” said the Assistant Manager of Lughati, Marwa Al Khateeb.

In second place were Al Nukhailat School who won Dhs7,000 and Amaamat Bint Abi-Al Aas School which was given Dhs5,000.

The Ministry of Education sent three juries to preside over the competition that drew three students from Grade Two from each school who worked as a team.

All the schools were from Sharjah. The scope of the programme covered 25,000 students from KG1 to G5 by the time all six phases end. Three phases have so far been covered spanning KG1 and 2 to G2 students of Sarah International City for Humanitarian Services.

“In KG1 and 2, we gave out tabs to 5,060 students; 232 teachers in 29 schools at a cost of Dhs17m; whereas in phase two we issue 2,959 tabs to G1 students; 129 teachers in 49 schools at a cost of Dhs15.5m. In the third phase we covererd G2 reaching out to 2,951 students; 76 teachers again in 49 schools costing Dhs15m,” said Al Khateeb.

The tablets were equipped with Arabic language educational programmes and applications, as well as training programmes for teachers that were developed in collaboration with Horouf Educational Publishing, a subsidiary of Kalimat Publishing Group.

The initiative is in line with Sheikh Sultan’s vision to enhance national identity and create a generation that is proud of its country and the Arabic language.
