Enriching Arabic Workshop

We are thrilled to share the success of our recent Arabic workshop held on November 25th at SEK-Qatar! The collaborative event brought together the passionate minds of our Arabic Team alongside esteemed colleagues from SEK International School Riyadh and Beacon Private School, fostering a dynamic exchange of ideas.

During the workshop, our dedicated educators delved into various types of assessment, exploring effective strategies to enhance the evaluation process. A key focus of the day was aligning the curriculum of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education with the International Baccalaureate framework, ensuring a seamless integration that optimally benefits our students.

The engaging discussions and shared insights showcased the commitment of our Arabic Team and the invaluable contributions from our fellow educators. This collaborative effort reflects our ongoing commitment to providing a rich, well-rounded education that prepares our students for success in a globalized world. Stay tuned for more exciting developments on the horizon!

Grade 7 Visual Arts – Microworlds: Bacteria & Neurons

Our talented Grade 7 Visual Arts students ventured into the digital world of stylus drawings on their laptops. As a Microsoft Showcase school we aim to integrate various digital experiences into our curriculum. In this interdisciplinary unit the Science and Visual Arts department fused their interest in microbes and showed how visual imagery enhance learning in science. Students selected their bacteria of choice and created remarkable drawings in OneNote. Students were taught how to use the grid method and explored the basic tools such as pencils, highlighters and pens in OneNote as a starting point. OneNote has a fun function where you can replay your drawing like a movie and learn from one another’s techniques and processes so students enjoyed seeing the step-by-step progression of a drawing.

Lastly, to celebrate their achievements artworks were selected as part of the SEK International School Qatar art collection. These works were framed and placed in the Science department for all to enjoy. Students were thanked for their efforts and received certificates to acknowledge their beautiful, creative work.
