Return to two schools in Nablus( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We return to Hajja Rushda girls school and King Tala boys school for the final months of the academic year, to complete this year-in-the-life observation of two Palestinian schools. It was a chaotic start to the year, and the final weeks are equally stressful. With exam time upon them, there are all the usual crises of time-tabling, over-crowded classes, over-stretched teachers and plenty of anxious students. Added to this are the extraordinary pressures of school life under occupation, with more student arrests by the Israeli army and severe restrictions on travel for students and teachers alike. It's an emotional time all round, with tensions, tears and triumphs. It's also time to look to the future: for the final year students, their school-leaving exams will determine what they will do with the rest of their lives
The path to the future by South Australia( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tawjihi, the path to the future, is the name of the school-leaving public exams that determine the futures of thousands of Palestinian students. We follow some of these final year students at King Talal boys school and Hajja Rushda girls school in this, the most important stage of their academic lives. Masar Sa'ed is trying to redeem her year. Her grades suffered earlier in the year because she was the only family member allowed to visit her brother, Marwan, who was held in an Israeli prison. Tariq too had a bumpy year and was almost expelled, but he has turned over a new leaf and has his hopes set on studying law at university. Alongside Masar and Tariq are Zed and Mahmood, two students with very different attitudes to their finals. They all need good grades and they all face difficult questions of whether to remain and study in Nablus, or to study abroad, or start work. It is an emotional time that will determine what they do with the rest of their lives

While the lower classes anxiously await their exam results, some of the teachers and students of King Tala boys school and Hajja Rushda girls school get the chance to travel beyond the checkpoints that surround Nablus. But like thousands of other 'paperless Palestinians', for Shifa al-Khatib, a science teacher at the girls school, travel has been impossible without identity papers and she hasn't seen her family in Jordan for ten years. When at last she gets the necessary papers, hers is a long and very emotional journey as she is finally reunited with her family. Back in Nablus, the lower school students' exam results determine whether they will go up to the next grade, or have to repeat the year
Exam time( Visual )

We return to the two Palestinian schools as the end-of-year exam season gets underway. Straight away there is tension between Daes Abu Kishik, headteacher of King Talal boys school, and his staff as they argue over the latest directive from the Education Ministry concerning exam timetables. The students too are struggling with the exam pressures. Osaid Salami spent many months in an Israeli jail earlier in the year, to the great cost of his education, and the exams are a challenge for him. At Hajja Rushda girls school there are different kinds of pressures as students like Lina Haddad push to achieve top marks. All this amid general exam fever, over-crowded classes and yet more students imprisoned. All the usual pressures of exam time in schools are met with the very particular pressures of school life under an occupation
Two schools in Nablus( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this third and final part of a unique month-long look at the daily lives of two schools in Palestine, we see how outside events can have enormous and tragic effects on the lives of the students and teachers. One month into an already stressful term and the two schools, King Talal boys' school and Hajja Rushda girls' school, have to deal with the day to day realities of living under an occupation. A raid by the Israeli army on a nearby refugee camp brings chaos to the schools as well as tragedy for one of the students
Two schools in Nablus( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term continues in this unique series following the daily lives of two schools in Palestine as they struggle with the extraordinary pressures of life under an occupation. In this second part we see how the pressures inside and outside the two schools grow. King Talal boys school and Hajja Rushda girls school in the West Bank are still struggling with teachers issues, but as the teachers' strike ends so concern over their erratic pay grows. Meanwhile the over-crowded classes make life stressful for teachers and students alike and when the boys school is landed with 42 more students, things come to a head. For some of the senior students the pressures are just too much to bear. Masar and Osaid, both writing exams while dealing with the Israeli prison system, get some mixed results while Tariq loses his temper and his place in school. Then, just when families are settling down for their Iftar celebrations, there is an ominous sign of trouble to come
Two schools in Nablus( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique series shows the daily lives of two ordinary schools in Nablus in the West Bank. Over the first month of a new term we observe King Talal boys school and Hajja Rushda girls school as they struggle with the extraordinary pressures of life in Palestine under the Israeli occupation. The series opens with the optimism of the first day of a new term - but a teachers' strike gets things off to a bumpy start. We follow both headteachers as they cope with the huge pressures on school places and angry parents desperate for places for their children. But their worries don't stop there. In a city plagued by frequent violent street battles between youths and the Israeli army, the head of the boys' school is worried about his student's safety. Many of his pupils have been killed and imprisoned in the conflict in recent years and we follow one of his pupils as he is reunited with his younger brother, released after six months in prison without charge
