UAE Year of Tolerance

The staff and students of Rashid School welcome the announcement that 2019 has been declared the Year of Tolerance in the UAE.  This fits very well with one of our three RSB core values, 'Respect and kindness'.  This value includes:

  • Having respect for your own culture and religion
  • Having respect for the culture and religion of others
  • Showing respect to young and old, women and men
  • Showing empathy and sensitivity
  • Being tolerant and fair

Following the announcement, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, said;

“Tolerance is the cornerstone of advanced societies, intellectually and humanely, and is one of the tools of empowering civilisations and ensuring stability and flourishing of nations.

In 2019, we will endeavour to establish this value and lead the intellectual, media and research production movements to reaffirm this value in our region, which has suffered a lot because of extreme allegiance to ideologies or factions or parties.”

Within Rashid School we will celebrate and support these values throughout the year.
