10-25 November 2013 - Compulsory Arabic classes for Grades 11-12 at Indian schools in Abu Dhabi
  • Indian schools in Abu Dhabi, including the Sunrise English School, started compulsory Arabic language classes for Grade 11-12 students in October 2013. They charged students additional fees, saying that ADEC told them a new rule made it compulsory, not optional. But according to Gulf News reports, ADEC said it was optional.

27 March 2010 review
  • Name in ADCCI directory is Sunrise Private English School (SPES). ADCCI directory also has a listing for a Sunrise English School in Al Dhafra, presumably the previous location of Sunrise school before relocating to Mussafah. Oddly though, the Mussafah school was first registered in August 1988 according to ADCCI, and the Al Dhafra school was first registered in April 1997. [Check] Dates are reversed and 1997 was date Sunrise school opened in Mussafah? School was established in Al Dhafrah in 1988.
  • The Sunrise School in Abu Dhabi is planning to expand according to a report in The National about the shortage of places at Indian schools in Abu Dhabi - "... the Sunrise School, have announced plans to expand ..."
  • Sunrise might also consider building a new school and relocate, or a new additional branch campus? No further information found or supplied.
  • Email address given in some sources as sunrise@eim.ae (or sunrise@emirates.net.ae) but that is also email address for Al Shorooq School in Dubai (not related to Sunrise School in Abu Dhabi).
  • Sunrise School Facebook page for students at facebook.com/group.php?gid=48744099126 but no official school website found.
