A view of the Dove Green School.
Dove Green Private School (DGPS), the first, most established British school in Dubai Investments Parks celebrated the start of construction of its senior school building. An audience of students, staff, parents, and dignitaries gathered at the school campus in Green Community, Dubai Investments Park, to mark this momentous occasion.
Speaking at the event held on 14th April 2022, Patrick Affley, the founding principal of the school, said: “It is a moment of great pride and joy for me to announce this next phase in the school’s growth. When we first started the school in 2014, we had an initial student population of 40, which has grown to over 600 students now with children from FS1 to Year 8.
Over the years, the school has extended its infrastructure and this new construction will add over 30 new smart classrooms, four science laboratories, a virtual reality learning zone, a dance and creativity studio, an AI-enabled library, a huge dining hall where students will get an opportunity to grow and cook their own food, a multipurpose hall and six sensory activity rooms that will be decided and designed by students themselves.”
The new construction at DGPS will also see the expansion of the school’s offerings to include Year 9 from September 2022 onwards, with Years 10 to 13 being introduced each progressing year. Rated ‘Good’ by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority, Dove Green has been a very child friendly school since its inception, keeping a ‘holistic education with happiness’ approach.
Sreekumar Brahmanandan, Investments Director, Dubai Investments Industries, said “situated within the Green Community, the school is rightly located near the new metro line and the ever-growing residential population of Dubai Investment park.
At a time when the economy of Dubai is vibrant and K-12 enrolment is on the rise it is great to see DGPS is expanding its campus. In sync with green community’s vibe, the bright and airy classrooms at the school stimulate a positive learning atmosphere for students and this new development will cater well to expanding residential communities too.”
Rated amongst the top British schools in Dubai and among the finalists for the happiest school in Dubai, DGPS has focused on imparting a true British community school education with a very friendly and happiness focused learning environment.
