Sur: Indian School Sur hosted STEAM SUR ‘22, a Science Technology Arts and Mathematics Exhibition, on Thursday. The exhibition combined exhibits from other Omani and non-Omani schools and colleges. The event was presided over by Abdullah bin Hamad al Oraimi, Director of the Private Schools Department, South Al Sharqiyah Governorate.
Speaking about the event, Dr S Srinivasan, school principal, said, “We strongly believe that the STEAM SUR 2022 will allow our students to apply scientific processes to problems that interest them. Moreover, most of the exhibits are of group activity; the students can network with their peers with similar interests.” “The event will facilitate skills essential in moulding young minds, including academic writing, verbal, written and public communication, and problem-solving skills. On the whole, the teachers are inspired by the students’ ideas and strongly feel that mentoring young minds is a chance of a lifetime,” he said.
Dr Srinivasan assured that the school had taken all the steps to involve the maximum number of students of the school and other private schools in this region to participate in this non-competitive event.
Mohammed Ameen, President of the School Management Committee, said STEAM SUR 2022 intends to develop teamwork and soft skills among learners as they work in groups to achieve common goals. The exhibition reflects the school’s mission of designing and delivering a reflective and responsive education to cater overall development of a child.
The collaboration of Omani and non-Omani schools and colleges is an excellent example of the strong bond and relationship between the Indian community and the Sultanate of Oman.
