Location and Climate
S.K.B.Z.Bangladesh Islamia School and College is located at Muroor, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, about 15 km south of Abu Dhabi, the capital of United Arab Emirates.
Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Bangladesh Islamia School, Abu Dhabi was founded on 23rd August 1980 with the objective of imparting quality education to Bangladeshi community children. The infant institution of the 1980 has under gone a lot of uncertainties, hurdles and odds uncounted. Nevertheless, the only centre for the education of our community has finally been able to erect its head like that of a big banyan tree in a foreign land, far from Bangladesh, our dearest homeland.The selfless social workers of the community with the active co-operation of Bangladesh Embassy, Abu Dhabi managed to get the permission of Ministry of education and started holding classes in the afternoon with a handful of students from class I to V at Al Rashidiya Government School at Madina Zayed which later on shifted to Al Karama Street.
The school kept running over there until 1990. His Highness Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan noble founder & father of U.A.E, donated a land of 400x200=80,000 sq.feet. The present President of U.A.E. His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan donated money for the construction of school building.
In 1990, Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Bangladesh Islamia School came into being as a full fledged educational institution and started functioning in its own building in the heart of the capital city of Abu Dhabi. The school has English and Bengali medium from KG to 12th class. Since its inception, school has been following Dhaka Boards curriculum in Bengali & English Medium. School was affiliated in 1988 and the college section was opened in 1991. Salaries of the teachers & staff are met up from the tuition fees only. The boys and girls are separated from class VI to class XII level. This school building was not sufficient to accommodate all the students in one shift. Two separate shifts for the boys and girls were going on for a long time. It was essential to make a new academic building for the boys. But due to shortage of fund it has been not possible. In the year 2004 the Bangladesh Embassy and the present Executive committee took a noble initiative to construct a new academic building. With the help of handsome donation of Bangladeshi community and some other foreigners it has finally been possible to construct a new academic building at the cost of 1.2 million Dirham.
English is now the only means of popular communication. Due to this global demand of English language majority non-resident Bangladeshi of Abu Dhabi are sending their wards to the other foreign schools for study in English Medium only.The construction of the Boys wing for bringing the school in one shift is another landmark in the history of school. This formidable task has been possible due to positive response of our kind Community members and their gracious donation. For all these things, we owe a lot to all concerned. We can all be up and doing for what is left to be done. We owe a lot to all the donors who supported the on going development of the school either by cash or kind. Thats the history in brief.
