Al Fawz In­ter­na­tional School pre­pares stu­dents for fu­ture

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Al Fawz In­ter­na­tional School (AFIS) is a school that has a fully equipped study en­vi­ron­ment with com­pe­tent staff and teach­ers who are com­mit­ted to nur­ture, en­cour­age and in­spire young minds. The school is a mem­ber of the AMA Ed­u­ca­tion Sys­tem.

Op­er­a­tions started in Septem­ber 2014 and since then, Al Fawz has been recog­nised by the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion. The school started of­fer­ing preschool (Kinder­garten 1, Kinder­garten 2), first grade to fourth grade classes and grow­ing an­nu­ally

The Cam­bridge cur­ricu­lum adopted by the school is based on in­ter­na­tional stan­dards of achieve­ment in all sub­ject ar­eas, sup­ported by a huge range of cocur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties en­sur­ing that stu­dents have the op­por­tu­nity to de­velop fully as in­di­vid­u­als. It in­cludes in­quiry-based, hands-on teach­ing meth­ods and learn­ing strate­gies geared to in­di­vid­u­alised in­struc­tion.

The AMA Ed­u­ca­tion Sys­tem’s af­fil­i­a­tion to Great Ex­plo­rations in Math­e­mat­ics and Science (GEMS), a pro­gramme of the Lawrence Hall of Science, Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia in Berke­ley, US en­hanced the cur­ricu­lum of­fered in Math­e­mat­ics and Science sub­jects.

In ad­di­tion to GEMS, the in­te­gra­tion of Ro­bot­ics as part of the cur­ricu­lum was also made in IT, Math­e­mat­ics and Science sub­jects. These and other good as­pects aid the school’s per­for­mance. The school has also adopted the Omani cur­ricu­lum as pre­scribed by the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion for pri­vate schools of­fer­ing the sub­jects such as Is­lamic Stud­ies, Ara­bic Lan­guage and So­cial Stud­ies.

English is the medium of in­struc­tion, ex­cept for Ara­bic Lan­guage and Is­lamic Stud­ies. In­ter­na­tional stu­dents can take French as a sec­ond lan­guage of study. Com­puter Lit­er­acy is also a strength of the school. Ara­bic lan­guage and French and Com­puter lit­er­acy are of­fered in all lev­els start­ing from Kinder­garten 1.

In order to de­velop in­formed, think­ing and dis­ci­plined in­di­vid­u­als ca­pa­ble of par­tic­i­pat­ing fully in their re­spec­tive na­tional set­tings and pro­mote in­ter­na­tional­mind­ed­ness, Al Fawz In­ter­na­tional School aims to es­tab­lish an en­vi­ron­ment which pro­motes the high­est pos­si­ble stan­dard of ed­u­ca­tion, skills, knowl­edge and at­ti­tude nec­es­sary for life-long devel­op­ment of an in­di­vid­ual.

AFIS pre­pares stu­dents to adapt and ad­just to the com­plex­i­ties and chal­lenges of an in­creas­ingly in­ter­de­pen­dent and con­stantly chang­ing world and fos­ter aware­ness of rights, du­ties and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of cit­i­zen­ship as well as re­spect for other cul­tures and na­tion­al­i­ties.
