Hagar

“ The worst time of my life was when I dropped out of my old school and stayed at home for a long time. No other school wanted to take me afterwards because I was too old. I left my old school because they used to beat me. It made me hate education altogether. Dad doesn’t like to upset me, and that is why he agreed to let me stay at home. I learned a lot from this period of my life. I learned to never let go of something good I used to have. Getting an education is important, you know. But, maybe if I hadn’t left my old school, I wouldn’t have joined Educate Me.”

Mr. Mahmoud

Mr. Mahmoud Al-Dawy is not your typical public school headmaster. The principle of Nag’ Abu ‘Anan Primary School in Luxor does not settle. He views every step as a venture and is pretty fond of taking the unbeaten path. Why? Because he completely trusts in his team’s skills and abilities.
 
Mr. Mahmoud believes that 90% of his role towards his team lies in skill investment and encouraging self-development. He says that only 10% of a principle’s role should be devoted to routine management tasks.
 
Nag’ Abu ‘Anan School nestles snugly in the embrace of a rocky mountain far in a desert area. It might look a bit shabby on the outside and a little under-resourced, but the real strength of the school lies in its people.
 
If Mr. Mahmoud were a less ambitious principle, he wouldn’t have considered applying for the accreditation certificate to begin with .After all, the school is running and students are graduating. But, he saw real potential in his dream team of passionate and capable teachers.
 
The real achievement is not that Nag’ Abu ‘Anan actually managed to get accredited from the National Authority for Quality Assurance and Accreditation of Education. The real achievement is that the school staff members adopted their principle’s growth mindset. They too started working on their own self-development and on encouraging their students to invest in themselves and change the way they think.
