19 October 2013 review
  • A Gulf News report about the Abu Dhabi Indian School new branch in Al Wathba (ADIS-2), which has seen its construction start date delayed for unknown reasons, dismissed rumours that Dr Shetty had a conflict of interest as chairman of both new schools (BRS and ADIS-2), but that as owner of BRS, and not ADIS, Dr Shetty had more desire to see BRS open first.
03 April 2013 review
  • Khaleej Times reported that Dr Shetty said because of the demand for seats he had also requested for a plot from ADEC to extend the 36,000-square metre Bright Riders School, where he is the chairman, at the Mohammed bin Zayed City. However, his initial request has been denied.
  • The report also said school opening initially for classes KG to Grade 4 (previous information said the school might open up to Grade 6 initially). Opening date 14 April 2013? Or 28 April 2013?
  • Brightriders School is new name (and location) for the International Community Kindergarten Mussafah (ICK, also called the Indian Community Kindergarten) established in 1978 and previously located in Al Dhafrah district, downtown Abu Dhabi.
16 August 2012 review
  • Ground breaking ceremony held for the new Bright Riders Indian School in Abu Dhabi. According to the press release ... this School is 'not-for-profit'.
  • Opening date expected to be April 2013. Initially school will open for grades KG-6? Registration applications accepted from March 2013?
  • School will operate Kindergarten to Grade 12 classes with a capacity of 4,000 students. Land plot area of 36,000 sq meters. Facilities will include an auditorium, sports complex, swimming pool.
  • Owner is Dr B R Shetty? He is also Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Indian School (ADIS), and CEO of New Medical Centre Healthcare Group (NMC Medical Group).
