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.
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.
Abedeen Academy has taught me so much in the past 5 months. So far, it’s been a rollercoaster. After joining the school, I felt so much gratitude because of the friends I made and the superb teachers I see everyday. Before these past 5 months, I dreaded school. I didn’t have any motivation to continue my academics because of the environment I was in.
