Our schools’ curricula are based on a set of national and international standards that focus on intercultural learning as a contribution to global citizenship. In order to promote the development of global citizenship and intercultural learning, all teachers are trained on how to plan to use and integrate the concept of global citizenship into the syllabus. This is done in line with the age group of primary school students and the nature of the taught subjects. We also celebrate the international days such as Children’s Day, UN Arabic Language Day within the school curricular and extra-curricular activities.
Both national and international curricula clearly promote the concepts of global citizenship, digital citizenship, and intercultural learning. These concepts have become an urgent necessity due to global openness and information revolution. Accordingly, teachers are periodically trained to plan how to address these issues in accordance with the curriculum. This is done in a balanced way to enable learners to benefit from them in developing their skills and talents and gaining new experiences.
Our schools are greatly interested in intercultural learning in both national and international curricula. For instance, we are keen to teach the English language alongside the mother tongue (the Arabic language). The English language is used in teaching many subjects such as mathematics, science, and ICT. In addition, our schools are keen to select well-qualified teachers from different intercultural and several nationalities, which enrich students by different cultural customs.
