EBS has specifically designed and introduced Life Skills Sessions for our Secondary students, in place with the knowledge of the Holy Quran at the heart of it. We aim to provide basic 21st century skills focusing on instilling timeless values of our religion that guides the students to gauge their abilities and skills in the light of Islam that will help them in this life and in hereafter!

Life Skill Session’s next guest was Ms. Nausheen Farrukh, a Clinical Psychologist, Wellness Trainer & Psychology Instructor.
Her valuable input about the importance of emotional health and tips for mental wellbeing were greatly appreciated by the students.
