A group of students from The British School of Kuwait were honoured to attend a week-long German Language Camp in Oman, organised by the Goethe Institute. In total, 25 students from Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and Oman were invited to participate. The camp, which took place in the idyllic surroundings of Wadi A’Shab resort, was a follow-up to the 2014 Aquanauten Project in which students from schools across the Gulf Region produced documentary films about water conservation.
In addition to receiving up to 20 hours of German language instruction, students drew inspiration for new environmental projects during trips to the Grand Mosque in Muscat, the ancient coastal maritime city of Sur and a hike through the picturesque Wadi A’Shab itself. Students subsequently researched and presented potential solutions to issues such as air and water pollution, deforestation and overpopulation. The visit culminated in an International Evening, attended by dignitaries from the Omani Ministry of Education, during which each school presented their country’s culture and traditions. Students representing Kuwait explained the history and significance of the national flag, described some of the country’s tourist attractions such as the Kuwait Towers and proudly sang the Kuwaiti National Anthem.
The British School of Kuwait is privileged to be a Partner School of the German Government and looks forward to further collaborations in 2016.
