The royal bonded with schoolkids as she visited a learning facility in Ajman.
As far as classroom visitors go, this is one we wish we’d had in our primary school days.
HRH Princess Haya bint Al Hussein was pictured bonding with some young Emirati schoolchildren during a visit to Al Musherif Model School for Boys in Ajman this week.
The royal toured the school’s INDEMAJ Learning and Resource Centre, where she was first greeted with a stream of UAE flags waved by selected students.
The wife of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, is actively involved in the country’s educational schemes as the chairperson of INDEMAJ’s Board of Trustees.
During her visit, Princess Haya spent time chatting with a number of students in the centre, as they shyly showed her their learning tools.
“We remain very inspired by HRH Princess Haya’s drive for excellence and quality education,” said INDEMAJ’s CEO, Hanne Al Gurg.
This isn’t the first time the royal has been pictured making the rounds at a local school – just last October Princess Haya and HH Sheikh Mohammed visited Kings’ School Dubai to celebrate World Teacher’s Day.
The couple popped into their daughter Al Jalila Al Maktoum’s class, and their son, Zayed, also attends the school.
Sheikh Mohammed’s son, Sheikh Hamdan, has also been known to surprise classrooms with a visit.
Just last year the Crown Prince of Dubai stopped by a local kindergarten to play with some rather excited kids.
