22 June 2013 review
- Name of school is Ambassador School (AS) according to website and press release, but Ambassador Education (AE) according to email received 17 June 2013.
- Ambassador School operates in the location previously occupied by the Global International Indian School (GIIS) which will reopen at another location (opening date and location unknown).
- Founding date of school is April 2013 or April 2010 depending on your point of view as to whether it's just GIIS renamed, or a new school using the location, buildings, facilities, students, teachers, and principal (Winston Gomez) previously operating as GIIS. The AS website says "Building on our decade long education service excellence in 2010 we started our first school – Ambassador School."
- The GIIS website says:
This notice is to inform the general public in Dubai, that the old GIIS school in Dubai, Global Indian International School, located at Mankhool, is operating under a franchise license to Mr Kamal Kalwani, and the franchise agreement has already been terminated as of 16th July 2012.
However for the convenience of parents / students, the school was allowed to complete the academic year 2012-13 and continue with the name "Global Indian International School" till 31st March 2013.
From 1st April 2013, the school will operate under a new name and will have no relationship or connection with the Global Schools Foundation (Singapore). The franchisee is aware that legally, after 31st Mar 2013, they cannot use any of GIIS' Intellectual properties / study materials which are owned by GSF.
- Franchise holder of Ambassador School continues as ScorePlus as far as we know (was previously the franchise holder for GIIS Dubai).
27 November 2012 review
- A ceremony was held on 25 November 2012 to announce the new school, or the new school name, and the group behind it - Ambassador Education.
- The press release (27 November 2012) said "A dynamic new academic body enters the educational scene in Dubai this year ... the founders have now established Ambassador Education. ... Ambassador School (formerly known as the Global Indian International School) was launched in 2010 in the Emirate of Dubai. ... The school will be rebranded and acquire its new name - Ambassador School in April 2013 ..."
22 April 2012 review
- Ambassador Education is apparently the name of a new school being established in Dubai by Score Plus Education (in Dubai) as a result of the dispute with Global Schools Foundation (GSF, in Singapore) over the Global International Indian School (GIIS Dubai) (more information about the dispute on the GIIS page).
- Opening date expected to be April 2013 ... unless ScorePlus and GFS resolve their disagreement.
- Location, contact details, website, email, not supplied. Try either Global Indian School Dubai or Ambassador Kindergarten for more information.
- Actual school name not clear (newspaper reports said Ambassador Education but that just sounds odd).
- Website not supplied or found, checked www.ambassadoreducation.com - is spam, www.ambassadoreducation.ae - is not available.
