THE RAHHAL PROGRAMME @THE INDIAN ACADEMY

Education is ever so important in the evolving world. However, academics alone isn’t a priority anymore. Education now leans towards overall development which includes both academic and co-curricular activities. The traditional structures have been changing gradually and technological integration has helped in making the education system more flexible than before. Schools in Dubai have been pioneering this change and the Rahhal Programme is one of the best examples of the same.

The Knowledge and Human Development Authority’s (KHDA) Rahhal programme is an advanced and disruptive scheme launched in April 2018. Started as a part of the Dubai 10X, a Dubai Future Foundation initiative, it has played a pivotal role in accelerating the performance of UAE students in their CBSE exams while allowing them to pursue their other goals too.

The Indian Academy, one of the best CBSE schools in Dubai, has been spearheading the task of reimagining the school learning environments to match the needs of both the present and the future. The concept of the Rahhal programme is simple: to let learning happen anywhere, and the word itself means traveller in Arabic. Each student can chart his/her learning path according to their interests and goals. While the traditional education system calls for 5 days of attendance, under the Rahhal programme, the school week is reduced to 3.5 days and the rest of the days can be utilised by the students for following their passions and self-study.

With learning flexibility being the core of the Rahhal Programme, TIAD provides up to 60% scholarship in the tuition fees for exceptional student-athletes as a concession amount (determined on a case-by-case basis and for a single academic year) towards their tuition fees.

The Rahhal programme at TIAD has helped students who excel in sports. It has made catching up with studies easier. The students are provided with notes and evaluations are done separately, allowing them to cover the parts they miss out during matches and tournaments.

The Rahhal forerunners of the Indian Academy have represented the school at various national and international events and emerged victorious. The TIAD Rahhal team marked their international victory with flying colours in the ISF U15 World school sports and games held in Belgrade, Serbia. It is just one of the many honours that the students at TIAD have brought home.

The Indian Academy is one of the few Indian schools in Dubai with a progressive and comfortable learning environment. The teachers are greatly supportive of the choices of the students and encourage participation. The students can take time to learn at their pace without being stressed about being held back academically.

The Indian Academy Dubai, a top CBSE school in Dubai, is a part of LEAMS Education. LEAMS education concentrates its efforts towards providing quality education at affordable costs. All schools under LEAMS education are known for their innovative approaches that provide flexible learning spaces and immense prospects for growth.
