Chil­dren’s Sum­mer Work­shop to be held at Bait al Baranda

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Bait al Baranda will soon launch its sum­mer events 2017 in its premises on the Mut­trah seafront. The sum­mer chil­dren's work­shop will fea­ture art classes from gar­den­ing, learn­ing about Omani plants, paint­ing of th­ese in­dige­nous plants to re­cy­cling, all aimed to­wards school stu­dents.

This work­shop will be in con­juc­tion with the Oman Botanic Gar­den, which has been es­tab­lished by Royal Or­der. It will com­mence from Sun­day Au­gust 6 and will last till Tues­day Au­gust 22.

The aim of this sum­mer work­shop is to in­cul­cate in chil­dren the im­por­tance of ex­tra cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties in their daily lives. In­stead of them be­ing at home dur­ing th­ese long sum­mer school va­ca­tions, they could in­dulge in art of all forms.

Ma­lik al Hi­nai, di­rec­tor of Bait al Baranda, said, “Bait al Baranda is priv­i­leged to host this yearly sum­mer ac­tiv­ity and this is our eleventh year of host­ing such an event. We have man­aged to iden­tify a niche and that is chil- dren in our com­mu­ni­ties. We as­pire to in­tro­duce and en­cour­age new tal­ent at all times, a nat­u­ral chan­nel for nur­tur­ing chil­dren’s cre­ativ­ity, be it in the arts, science or tech­nol­ogy. Our sum­mer event last year was a suc­cess with over 140 chil­dren par­tic­i­pat­ing. Not only did we in­vite chil­dren from within the Mut­trah com­mu­nity but we also ex­tended in­vi­ta­tions to the Mus­cat com­mu­nity at large. They par­tic­i­pated in var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties, all based within the theme ‘Be Green’. This year, we con­tinue with this en­vi­ron­men­tal theme ‘Be Green 2’ and we ex­pect the same en­thu­si­asm from our young friends of Baranda.”

Ap­pli­ca­tion forms for reg­is­tra­tion have to be filled and signed by par­ents and th­ese are avail­able at Bait al Baranda in Mut­trah. Chil­dren can choose to par­tic­i­pate in a weekly ses­sion for RO10 (per child).

This is a two week work­shop. Those in­ter­ested could ten­ta­tively reg­is­ter by call­ing 24714262.
