Al Mokhtar Jazoulit School Won in the Arab Reading Challenge
Out of 92,000 Arab schools competing in the sixth Arab Reading Challenge in Dubai, the Al Mokhtar Jazoulit School in Rabat was named the “Outstanding School.”
An award of 1 million Emirati dirhams ($ 272,000) will be given to the Moroccan school, enabling it to invest additional funds in fostering a culture of reading and academic and cognitive achievement.
“As part of the reading challenge, from 92,000 schools that participated, Al Mokhtar Jazoulit School from the Kingdom of Morocco won as the best school that supports reading and consolidates it in our generations,” UAE Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced on his twitter account.
