I was watching a TEDx Talk by Gautam Khetrapal back in November of last year. Mr Khetrapal asked his audience if they had a smartphone. The camera did not show the audience, but by the look of his expression, I am assuming a majority of them put their hands up. He then asked how many of them had the same phone in the past 2 years. Again, the camera did not show the crowd, but through his reaction, hardly anyone put their hands up.
In conjunction with World Humanitarian Day on 19th August, students were asked to carry out an act of humanity to a stranger. This project was made voluntary for compassion cannot be forced, instead, it is nurtured.
While i was going through one of my social media accounts looking for some new ideas to write about, I found a very interesting topic which is called ‘The Butterfly Effect’.
Abedeen offers full day classes from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.. Our students spend the entire day on so many beneficial activities. Join us now! Don’t miss out. Education is expensive but ignorance, social ills, gangsterism, bullying and terrorism are unimaginably costly!
After spending 45 minutes to decipher a block graph in class, the students identified five questions to ask their fellow friends at Abedeen. The questions revolved around the things their friends like the most. Once their teacher approved the questions they chose to ask, they were ready to run their survey of what their friends liked the most.
A child knows no boundaries. As long as they are given a chance to learn, they will want to learn. As long as there is an opportunity to explore, they will explore. At Abedeen, one of our responsibilities is to allow our students to embrace their desire for knowledge. We do this by encouraging them to do the things they love, as long as it is educational for them.
In the light of this Ayat, Abedeen Academy signed an agreement with Palestinian Culture Organization Malaysia (PCOM).
With this agreement, Abedeen Academy will award a full scholarship for five Palestinian students from different levels of education, and fifty partial sponsorship worth up to 40% for Arabic students who come from war zone countries Palestine, Syria, Yemen, and Iraq.
Albert Einstein’s quote that play is the highest form of research is true in every sense. Many times here at Abedeen, we have witnessed the beauty of students learning through doing, and more importantly, having fun while they are at it.
Abedeen Academy: A place that has given me a lot of inspiration, A place that makes me say, every single night before I went to sleep, “You are doing good today. Try to be better than today”. A place of battle where I can see every single moment the people around me here struggle to be better. A place that has helped me find my personality and in simple words of mine, a place of thousand thoughts.
Tough roads lead to beautiful places. This is the quote I keep in mind whenever I face any challenge. Every distance must have an ending. And so every challenge has a solution.
