WCAS to hold free summer classes for Omani high school students
Waljat College of Applied Sciences (WCAS) will be organising four weeks of free summer classes for high school students from July 30. WCAS focuses on comprehensive development of students as they are expected to contribute significantly not only to the business world but also to the society at large.
The four-week long programme is designed to provide an opportunity to the high school students to use their free time optimally by learning the fundamentals of IT as well as English language skills and soft skills. The classes would be conducted in the college campus itself which will further provide a glimpse of college life to the prospective students. While attending the course, the students can also get an insight of various career options available to them after leaving the school. Approximately 120 students will benefit from this programme which focusses on providing theoretical knowledge, hands-on experience and activity-based learning. Certificates would be awarded to the students after the successful completion of the course.
Dean, WCAS, Prof (Dr) S L Gupta, believes that students will reap benefits by getting theoretical and practical knowledge of the subjects and exposure to different fields of study in future. He has also expressed satisfaction with the number of participating students and has advised faculty members to ensure active participation of students.
This programme is a reaffirmation of the commitment of WCAS towards serving the community. It will familiarise and equip the students with necessary skills to prepare themselves for a bright future.
