Students in Abu Dhabi school get a royal ‘classmate’

Students of a school in Abu Dhabi were in for an exceptionally pleasant surprise when they found the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince sitting in their classroom. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, was beaming as he sat at the back of the classroom.

Sheikh Mohammed sat through the English language lesson and math classes with the students of the Al Asayel School, a government run institution. The presence of the Crown Prince brought about much joy and happiness to the students who were visibly delighted to be in such esteemed company.

Sheikh Mohammed took to Twitter and posted a series of pictures that showed him interacting with the students and enjoying the lessons. He also urged parents to pay extra attention to their wards in order to nurture their skills and preparing them for a bright future. He said that education was the means by which one can conquer all fields of development.
