(13 November 2016)


Dubai Investments Park marked the groundbreaking of a new school within the development. The new British Columbia Canadian School (BCCS), the sixth school within DIP, will be operational by September 2017.

The school is being constructed at a total investment of AED 88 million in partnership with Emirates REIT, the Sharia-compliant regulated real estate investment trust, on a 25,000 square metre plot in DIP. The school will offer K-12 Kindergarten, primary and secondary programs within the British Columbia Canadian curriculum. The school will have over 60 classrooms, with a total capacity to accommodate 1,500 students.

The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by Eng Mostafa Tawfik, Chairman of BCCS, Karim Mostafa, Vice-Chairman of BCCS, Sylvain Vieujot, CEO of Emirates REIT, H.E. Emmanuel Kamarianakis, Consul General of Canada in the UAE, officials from Dubai Investments Park, and representatives of contractors & project consultants.

Omar Al Mesmar, General Manager of Dubai Investments Park, said: “The British Columbia Canadian School is a significant value-addition to DIP, and part of its strategy to offer additional choices and world-class educational institutions within the community. DIP is fast reinforcing its identity as the preferred residential destination and thus a favoured option for both investors and end-users.”

Sylvain Vieujot, CEO of Emirates REIT, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the British Columbia Canadian School and adding it to our portfolio of school developments. We have the experience of working with leading contractors and other partners of architects and education specialists and we look forward to delivering a high quality education facility to the growing Dubai Investments Park community.”

Karim Mostafa, Vice-Chairman at British Columbia Canadian School, said: “The British Columbia Canadian School’s network comprises 46 schools, serving more than 20,000 students across eight different countries and five continents, including China, Columbia, Egypt, France, Japan, Qatar, South Korea and now in the UAE. The school in DIP is strategically located and will fully integrate technology, including global classrooms, into its education programs under the supervision of teachers certified from Ministry of Education in Canada.”

The school, to be constructed in two phases, will include computer labs, indoor pools, sports fields, play grounds and an auditorium covering a total built up area of 17,156 square metres. British Columbia is the number one English spoken curriculum worldwide and the 5th ranked curriculum globally.

Over the years, DIP has spent over AED 4 billion in enhancing the infrastructure to international standards, which includes 140-km of internal road network and well-integrated water and electricity systems, the best of educational institutions, hospitals, hotels, retail outlets, supermarkets and other day-to-day necessities and recreational options.
