Philippine National School (PNS), operating from a villa, gathered wreath of people following its announcement to cut the number of pupil by nearly half before the starting of coming academic session. People gathered at the embassy for registering their strong protest against the decision of the school that is to cut the number of pupils from 1,200 to 650, thus, pushing 550 children in dark.
The Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC), in fact, had instructed the school to downsize in line with its policy to phase out villa schools in the emirates so that healthy academic environment may be created for the growth of children. The council said that it is fully concerned about the displaced children and efforts are being made to adjust them in nearby schools.
Meanwhile, people disliked the decision adding that it is untimely and unwarranted at this moment. Donde Cotanda, a sales executive, whose child is in grade six at PNS, said, "We wish that we were informed about these changes earlier because we could have then made the necessary arrangements, including sending our children back home if necessary."
