QUOTE (amg @ Apr 21 2009, 10:41 AM)
Hi all, I have a few friends in my daughters school and they are all still waiting for Al Muna to respond back. Apparently they have applied real early as well. Will defi keep you posted if I hear of anything from them... Pearl I know there will be no response at all as they are totally full this year with siblings and Al Dar staff.

places may become available because of the redundancies going on in A and LOR

Apparently it helps to know someone inside, I know people who applied mid February. They have managed to secure a place in grade 1 in Al Muna after speaking to a friend who works there.

I know this has made me very angry too because we haven't heard anything from them yet and even if you call nobody answers. It seems you have to go there personally in order to get some answers. Another friend of mine went their yesterday and she was told that they will contact her in two weeks for assessment tests.

Well shell, you can not predict this, can you? I always thought they should go by the date applied (no matter what school) and then give admission ...

But... Hey, I am in AD ... what am I thinking ... anyone use logic here?

Date of admission is one thing but there are many factors as well that play in school admissions , believe me it's like a puzzle. For example in Al Muna, you have all these categories and I don't know which is which so don't quote me on this:

1.siblings-nationals working for Aldar
2.siblings-nationals
3.siblings- other nationalities
4. nationals - Aldar employees
5. nationals -non Al dar employess
6. and then you have the rest

this is true , a lot of kids are migrating from al Yasmina to AL Muna as it is in the city.this is so awful .the admin should first decide for other students then if they have a place they should give it the Yasmina students.looks like Al Muna has another priority that is Al Yasmina students.this way i dont think our children stand a chance........ thumbs_down.gif

At the meeting about the opening of Al Muna, it was stated very clearly that first priority was to be given to Al Yasmina students who wanted to move into town. Although I really want a place at Al Muna, I do think that this is fair enough, as I would not like to drive my kids from the Corniche to Al Yasmina as friends have been having to do. At least this will free up places at Al Yasmina

that means we wasted time applying for Muna and that we should have applied to Al Yasmina instead 021.gif but such a bad luck that Yasmina registrations are closed. the parents of the children going to Yasmina atleast have their kids going to a good school but we on the other hand have yet to get our kids into one......
