11 May 2010

- A Gulf News report a couple of days earlier, on 08 May 2010, said about Dubai Land that "Other projects under construction include the City of Arabia, Dubai Lifestyle City, Palmarosa, Al Barari and the Taleem Beacon Education project." Perhaps construction stopped on 09 or 10 May 2010 then.

18 August 2008 review
- A report in Business Management ME July 2008 said that "Two schools are due to be built next year, the first being the Dubailand Early Childhood and Primary School.
The second school, in Bahrain, will be the first outside the UAE."
- The report also said "Azzam is also excited about the launch of Taaleem's International Teacher Training Centre in September," presumably meaning Spetember 2008, but didn't specify if it was the planned center for Dubailand. Mr Ziad Azzam is the CEO of Taaleem.
17 April 2005 review
- A press release from Beacon Education announced a new Education Complex and Flagship School would be built in Dubai Land, near Academic City, on an area of about 2.5 million square feet and comprise 5 separate schools as well as the headquarters for Taaleem and Beacon Education. Institutes planned are:
- Early childhood preschool, nursery, and crèche
- Primary/elementary school
- Middle School and Secondary/High School (2 nos)
- Junior College
- Official launch date expected to be 2008 with some parts of the school project to be operational before then.
- Teacher Training Institute also to be developed as part of the Taaleem Education City or Dubailand Education City?
- Shared campus facilities to include amphitheatre, aquarium, auditorium, design and technology workshops, educational farm, planetarium, riding school, student union, and more.
- Total cost about AED 800 million.
Dubailand CEO, Salem Bin Dasmal, said the Dubailand-Taaleem joint venture was a good idea because "Dubailand is all about fun, entertainment, leisure and happiness." That should be comforting to all those students learning trigonometry as they watch the visitors playing on the roller coaster outside the school window. Yippee!
