LUX* South Ari Atoll donates skill labs to Hiriya School

LUX* South Ari Atoll has donated five labs to Hiriya School, designed to teach the school’s students vocational skills.

LUX* Resorts’ regional director Hussain Afeef told Sun on Tuesday that the labs, run under the name ‘Hiriya Fanaaru, is designed to teach school students vocational skills based on LUX* South Ari Atoll’s years of experience in the tourism and hospitality industry.

The ‘Hiriya Fanaaru’ Project is part of the resort’s CSR initiative ‘Circle of Care’.

‘Hiriya Fanaaru’ was launched in a ceremony held at Hiriya School on Monday night. The labs set up under the initiative include ones that teach students a wide range of vocational skills including sewing and embroidery, carpentry and electrical works, drawing and painting, and other practical skills.

The hospitality lab allows students to learn cooking and serving, customer care, laundry service, and housekeeping.

Hirya School described the ‘Hiriya Fanaaru’ labs as a bright beacon that will shine light students’ future. The school said the labs will serve as a useful tool in ensuring all students who graduate from the school productive members of society.

LUX* South Ari Atoll is in charge of maintaining the labs in a sustainable manner.

Afeef said the resort decided to choose Hiriya School for the project because it had always differentiated itself from other schools with its interest in preparing its students for their careers.

He expressed hope the school’s students will make good use of the labs.
