From the Head of School

Mr. Sanjeev Kumar Jolly
Our Own High School, Al Warqa’a, (a Boys’ school) is one of the GEMS pioneer schools which started in 1968 and has carved a niche for itself in the Emirate of Dubai, the U.A.E. and the world. With several accolades won, the school has won the hearts of the people of Dubai. I am really honoured and privileged to be the Principal of this great institution since April 2012.
