Middle School Discover Oman
The Discover Oman week in November was once again a highlight for Middle School students at TAISM. It was a great week of student learning, with memorable opportunities to hike, swim, climb, abseil, kayak, ride camels, snorkel, create, learn more about ourselves and others, have opportunities to persevere individually and as a part of a team, and to learn more about our wonderful host country, Oman.
The 7th and 8th graders had five trips to choose from: Beaches and Lagoons, Cliffs and Mountains, Mountain Discovery, Camels and Turtles, and Ocean Adventure. After participating in a day of camping challenges and group games at TAISM, all 6th grade students spent three days exploring Nizwa and the surrounding region.
MS Discover Oman 2017 ended with the 12th Annual MS Discover Oman Photo and 4th Annual Discover Oman Video Contest. The photo contest was split into four categories; Student Learning, Landscape, Artistic, and Omani Culture, while the video portion of the contest was for videos which captured the DO experience. The top three pictures in each category will be displayed in the Middle School.
