Al Ahmadiya school


Al Ahmadiya School takes you back to the historical ambience of education in the early 20th century of Dubai's history. It is the first national semi-regular school in the Emirate of Dubai. It was founded and established by His Eminence, the late Sheikh Ahmed bin Dalmouk in 1912. He was one of the leading prominent pearl merchants in the Arabian Gulf. The school attracted a number of scientists and scholars from neighbouring Arab countries to teach at it. Education went on at the school ever since its establishment until 1958. In 1994, the Government of Dubai restored Al Ahmadiya School and transformed it into a historical museum. Source: dubaiculture.gov.ae
