This system was designed by two female students from Fatima Al- Zhara’a Secondary School using “Hakibat Al-Etihad Al Ibtikariah” which helps students transform thoughts and ideas into invention projects with the best interests of the school community in mind.
The ministry also presented the services of its Education Date Services centre which acts to introduce all school-related information regarding the progress of the school day processes. This Centre collects and analyses decision makers in the educational process.
