Celebrates 10 Years
February 21, 2019
On Wednesday, February 20, 2019, the Bahrain
Teachers College formally celebrated its ten years of operation. With an event
patronized by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Mubarak al Khalifa, Deputy Prime
Minister, Chair of the Supreme Council for the Development of Education and
Training, every seat in the large Sheikh Abdelaziz Hall of the University of
Bahrain was filled to hear speeches by His Excellency Minister of Education Dr.
Majid bin Ali Al Nuaimi and the Dean of the College, Dr. Ted Purinton. At the
event, the members of the college’s Governing Council were honored.
The event was the third of three ten year anniversary celebrations among educational organizations in Bahrain. The other two--the
Polytechnic College and the Bahrain Quality Assurance Authority--celebrated
their anniversaries in late 2018. All three institutions were shaped as
educational reform pillars as part of the Bahrain 2030 initiative.
