Prince Mateen and Princess Anisha of Brunei have opened the country’s first special needs school.

The Prince was the guest of honour at the inauguration of Al-Ameerah Al-Hajjah Maryam School, which is Brunei’s first school dedicated to those with special needs.

Prince Mateen’s wife, Princess Anisha, joined him for the event, and they both received a tour of the new school. They were seen smiling and interacting with the students.

Later on Instagram, the Prince shared images from the opening and said: “It was an honour to attend the opening of Sekolah Pusat Ehsan this morning and meet all the incredible students, teachers, sponsors & volunteers. Thank you so much to everyone involved in turning this vision into a reality.”

Other members of the Royal Family and government were on hand to celebrate the occasion, dubbed a significant milestone in a press release by Pusat Ehsan.

Prince Mateen is the tenth child and fourth son of Brunei’s Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah. He married Anisha Rosnah in January 2024.
