The Friday Class


We can’t remember everything… so we need reminders!

Kids are younger to us… so they need more reminders!


The Friday Class is an article that presents pointers for children to remember; at home and at school. The article is published fortnightly in a Dubai based magazine, Young Times.


Authors, Mariam Masood and Fatima Masood are identical twin sisters based in Dubai. They are teachers by profession and adore their career. Here’s a note from them. 


“The Friday Class was a result of many isolated moments we spent as teachers… in school, at home, in malls, parks, waiting lobbies and at the Dubai Creek.


As teachers we always feel there is very less time, in class, to tell the children about the many little things they need to remember in order to enjoy life. Since the classes are curriculum driven it becomes difficult to address the day to day challenges, problems and tasks children come across. Not only as teachers, even at home, with our nephews and niece, we realize there are so many things that need adult attention and address.


In order to kill the guilt we thought of the concept of a Friday Class which would have all the little but important things we want to tell children aged 7 onwards.


It is important to say that Fridays and Saturdays are weekly holidays here in Dubai, no school. That’s why the article was named The Friday Class. At home, when children are missing their teachers, they get an opportunity of absorbing some more knowledge of the world… a short message from very concerned caring teachers…

(More than a hundred cards saying ‘best teacher of the world’ verify this statement! – goes right for both, Mariam and Fatima)”


So, for young girls and boys here are some nice things to read and follow in life. Of course also for older people who missed on good teachers and teachings in life! Minutes invested in goodness help a lifetime.



So, all pencils and papers away…

Don’t let your mind sway…

We hope you learn something new today!”
