There has always been undue academic pressure on Indian schools in capital area to accommodate growing number of wards of Indian expatriate community during the last one decade. With more than 3000 fresh admissions in every year coupled with nearly 3500 students undergoing afternoon classes, this growing need of having yet another school in the capital area was found to be the need of the hour by Board of Directors, Indian Schools in Oman. At the same time, such an initiative should also need to match with the requirements of civil authorities to effectively manage surrounding areas of capital schools through effective management of traffic.
. This initiative of Board of Directors received a shot in arm when Ministry of Housing, Sultanate of Oman granted permission to establish an Indian School at Al Awabi in the year 2011 in a land of about 15,000 Sq Mtrs. Subsequently, Ministry of Education granted permission to construct a school at the designated place in the year 2013 subject to the approval of Public Authority of Civil Defence & Ambulance, Directorate General of Traffic, and Director General of Operations. After having chalked various plans for fund mobilization for constructing the school and required permissions from civil authorities, the project to construct the school has been awarded to M/S. Al Nehda Al Omania Co. LLC. Project work commenced in the month of March 2017 and is expected to be complete by September 2018.
