Over 200 CBSE schools in the Middle East fall under a single entity, renamed Gulf Sahodaya, and Sanjeev Jolly, Principal of GEMS Our Own High School – Al Warqa’a has been elected as the new Convener for all 70 CBSE schools in UAE for 2019-2020.
Each year the country convener for the six GCC countries is mandated to conduct the conference for that year in the country of choice of the chapter. For 31 years all CBSE Principals meet annually for a four-day meeting to discuss the common problems of CBSE schools, the directives laid down by CBSE, and to deliberate the way forward as to best contribute to the growth of the schools.
In January 2020 the UAE will be the host country for the next conference and Sanjeev will conduct the Gulf Sahodaya Conference for the entire body of principals. For the remainder of this year, Sanjeev will coordinate the activities for CBSE schools in the Gulf as well as participate in events at schools throughout the UAE.
