The Ibn Khuldoon National School, witnessed the retirement of an educator that had dedicated almost 3 decades of service to the school. Mr. Chaouki Barake, who retired at the end of the scholastic year of IKNS received an outpour of appreciation online from his students leading all the way to the batch of 1993. The students embarked on a mission to make their gratitude and appreciation known to the former principal, Mr. Barake, led by alumni Wafa AlObaidat.
What ensued was a widespread mobilization of support globally, regionally and locally of more than 220 students from 1993 to 2020 who contributed monetarily towards gifts of appreciation.
On his last day at the school a select number of former students met with him to say thank you and show him how grateful they have been for his years of service on behalf all the batches he had served.
