Meet your new Head of Majid House, Mr Nisar.
Majid House is named after Aḥmad ibn Mājid, known as "AmirAl Bahr Alarabi" in Arabic which means "the prince of the sea”. He was also known as the “the Lion of the Sea”. Ibn Majid was an Arab navigator and cartographer born in 1432 in Julfar, part of Oman under the Nabhani dynasty rule at the time. Ibn Majid was the author of nearly forty works of poetry and prose. Majid house is represented with the colour yellow in Jumeirah College and the house mascot is a lion.
Majid house loves competing with confidence and pride in the many house competitions that are on offer in JC. Some of these house competitions have included the Cup Stacking challenge, the Retroquiz and the interhouse reading competition amongst many others. The Majid House moto is “Comforatare et superbiam” meaning to be strong and to have pride. We hope to welcome you to be part of our strong Majid house and that you will be proud to be a member of this house. With you joining Jumeirah College in September, I am sure that Majid House will succeed in overthrowing the other Houses to win as many house competitions as possible so that we can be named #1 House in Jumeirah College.
