Majid House

Head of House

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.

As well as being a part of the Jumeirah College community, each student is a member of one of our four Houses: Fihri, Majid, Gibran and Sina. There are two equal halves to the cohort, each with a form group for each House. The House Captains are Year 13 students by appointment, following a rigorous selection process. In each year group there are also House Representatives who work with the House Captains to coordinate whole College events as well as their own year group specific events. Each house has a staff leader called the Head of House, who is responsible for the organisation and programme of events across the academic year.
In addition to Year and Whole College assemblies, regular house assemblies take place each term coordinated by the student leaders
