She also felicitated the guardians of the students who stood by them, and provided comfort to them to achieve the highest levels of excellence.

In a statement following the announcement of the results of the high school at the state level, Sheikha Fatima expressed her great pleasure and pride in the achievement of the UAE national girls in all disciplines in this academic year. "This confirms that the UAE national girl is capable if she gets the right atmosphere," she said.

She added that the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan did not spare any effort to emphasise that Emirati women have a great role in society, and the right to take all opportunities available to them in education to participate in the development process in the country. He was the first to provide whatever the UAE national women had needed to achieve their ambitions, Sheikha Fatima said.

Harnessing all the opportunities, the women have proven beyond doubt, their competence and excellence in all fields, Sheikha Fatima said.
