It will offer many activities, including training students in computer programming, preparing students to participate in local and international competitions, as well as some recreational activities.
Water Crisis in Cape Town- Beyond the Classroom
Unit: Thirsty World
Post session task: Writing- Describing a line graph
Grade 8 students connected with an educator in Cape Town to learn more about the water crisis in the city. This was in connection with their current unit of study; Thirsty World.
A group discussion on shortage of water was followed by a web-search on what lead to the current crisis in Cape Town. This was supported by more information from an educator who discussed the current situation on ground.
The new word/idea that students got to know about was -grey water. They are currently working on a line graph on the water levels in a major reservoir in Cape Town.
Coinciding with the launch of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of UAE. In collaboration with the “Year of Giving 2017”, the management of RAK campus has launched an initiative "Keep Them Warm" by distributing winter clothes as gifts for all drivers and workers. This comes from our attention to support community initiatives and campaigns of a humanitarian nature that benefit the interests of the varying societies within the United Arab Emirates.
On behalf of RAK staff I would like to thank Ms. Kalthoom, Ms. Merfat, Ms. Alia and Ms. Aaesha Al Nuaimi for their excellent work coordinating this important initiative.
