Sheikh Saud told the children: "The journey of life seems long at your age but, when you grow older, you realise that life is short. That is why I implore you all to live your life and do what you really love, because to succeed is to do what you love. Life is a great journey and, to do your best, you must educate yourselves, through reading, listening and learning. You are our champions of the future, so I hope that you have a great summer and come back next year ready to enjoy what will hopefully be a more normal school experience."
After the call, Sheikh Saud said: "Today I had the opportunity to speak with some of the wonderful young minds from across RAK Academy schools and I found their inquisitive nature, energy and enthusiasm to be heart-warming. I sincerely hope that they maintain those traits as they navigate through their school years, as the importance of approaching education with passion and intrigue cannot be understated.
"A good education is vital to our success, both individually and collectively, and that is one of the main reasons why Ras Al Khaimah places such emphasis on improving standards across all of its schools," Sheikh Saud added. "We seek to empower our younger generations to greater achievement as this, in turn, will help Ras Al Khaimah and the UAE to prosper and develop sustainably."
