Jumeirah Primary School Spring Fair is coming back!
Following the success of the previous years JPS Spring Fair is coming back. February 24, 2017, from 2pm to 6pm, will be another great day filled with fun and laughter, a celebration of our community. But let's not forget that behind all the joy and good time, there is a BIGGER CAUSE: again, we are teaming up with Dubai Cares and hoping to raise enough money to build yet another school in one of the developing countries.
... of all the efforts of the students and teachers of Jumeirah Primary School as well as the Parent Teachers Association which allowed us to raise enough money from the Spring Fair 2016 to build another school with Dubai Cares. This time we donated to Dubai Cares 132,000 AED and, following the choice our JPS students made, we will be building a school in Malawi, a country currently ranked as among the world’s 20 least developed countries on the UN’s Human Development Index. The construction will start in mid 2017. This is the second school we have adopted in two years.
We are proud...
... beacuse the first school we adopted is ready and running!
The first school we adopted with Dubai Cares is in Nepal and was built using the 142,000 AED donated to Dubai Cares from the Jumeirah Primary School Spring Fair in 2015. A new three-classroom school was completed in Jagatpur village in western Nepal and has been in operation since September 26, 2016. Today 101 children (among them 55 girls) ages 6-14 receive classes at the school in Jagatpur. There are 6 teachers who teach 5 grades at the school. The school contains 2 gender specific latrines and is furnished with desks and chairs, carpets for children to sit on during reading or leisure time, and permanent chalkboards.
