…Striking a difference with Sandstruck
A nomadic British Pakistani, Lubna Sarwar is a thinker, dramatist, teacher and learning designer. During her 31 years in education, Lubna has worked with organizations as diverse as the Manchester Council for Community Relations, Karachi Grammar School, UNESCO, Emirates International School, and London’s Big Wheel Theatre in Education.
It was as Advisory Teacher for the Highly Able & Talented (HAT) Programme that Lubna researched and developed Sandstruck in the UAE, a multi-levelled resource pack unique in design, concept and content with its underlying aim to revitalize the Primary School Curriculum. It encourages self-directed learning as well as a deeper understanding of the Emirati culture and language.
In partnership with staff and students of the UAE’s Higher Colleges of Technology and Jebel Ali Primary School, Lubna continues to support the growth of Arts and Culture in Education. She believes we can create imaginative and motivating educational materials – on paper, online, on exhibit, on screen – right here in the United Arab Emirates.
