Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

As al­ways, stu­dents of busi­ness stud­ies and eco­nom­ics take learn­ing out­side the school premises. Com­bin­ing class­room learn­ing with prac­ti­cal un­der­stand­ing is of prime im­por­tance and we at Kuwait Na­tional English School of­fers our stu­dents the per­fect op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­plore and learn in a more prac­ti­cal man­ner. Our stu­dents con­tin­u­ously im­prove their knowl­edge of the Eco­nomic en­vi­ron­ment through a se­ries of field trips, job shad­ow­ing and work ex­pe­ri­ence ses­sions.

One such visit was to the Kuwait Stock Ex­change now known as Boursa Kuwait. The ob­jec­tive of this visit was to learn how the ex­change Cen­tre works and how Pub­lic com­pa­nies are listed on the Stock Ex­change. It was a valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence and stu­dents got to see the trad­ing area as well as traders en­gag­ing in the stock mar­ket. Our stu­dents were given a warm re­cep­tion by Priya Car­doza and Ja­far Al Wael. They briefed the stu­dents on the gen­eral func­tion­ing and a brief his­tory of the Boursa. This was fol­lowed by a pre­sen­ta­tion by Dalal Al Bar­rak on the strate­gic trans­for­ma­tion un­der­taken by the Boursa. Mr. Saud Al Dhayyan then ex­plained the trad­ing process and the daily ac­tiv­i­ties at the Boursa.

Stu­dents were keen to ask ques­tions and they were im­pressed by the his­tory of the Boursa. Our stu­dents greatly ben­e­fit from such trips as it helps them sub­stan­ti­ate their the­o­ret­i­cal learn­ing with prac­ti­cal un­der­stand­ing. It will go a long way in achiev­ing the school’s ob­jec­tives of tak­ing ed­u­ca­tion be­yond class­rooms.
