Al Bateen Academy’s Year 7 Girls received the football experience of a lifetime recently in Abu Dhabi. The Manchester City Football Club visited the school to help teach the youngsters healthy habits through the exciting sport of football. The girls would then participate in many different football drills, such as passing, shooting, and dribbling. Finally, the pupils learned what it takes to balance a healthy lifestyle and how to maintain their physical fitness.

Grades 9, 11, and IGCSE/AS levels had recently taken part in the 8th Annual Athletic Meet hosted by the Dubai Police Club Stadium. The mission of this movement was not only to promote strength and fitness movements in school, but the community as well.
