Outward Bound programme launched in Al Farahidi School
Abdullah Al Liwaihi

RUSTAQ The Ministry of Education launched the ‘Outward Bound’ programme at Al Khalil Bin Ahmed Al Farahidi School of Basic Education (5-11) for the first time in the Sultanate.

The ministry adopted this non-profit programme in collaboration with Omran Company.

This major youth development initiative ‘Outward Bound’ aims at using the outdoor environment to unlock the human potential of young people in the Sultanate, and developing the key life skills sought by employers, increasing environmental awareness and instilling an appreciation of community service. Outward Bound Oman is the first Outward Bound School in an Arabic speaking country.

Working in partnership with the Ministry of Education, the Outward Bound Oman/Tahaddi Project has been set up to use the desert, mountains and seas of Oman to develop key life skills through challenging outdoor journeys which take young people outside of classrooms and into a unique learning environment.

For three days, the students of Al Khalil Bin Ahmed Al Farahidi School implemented a real challenge at Al Jabel Al Akhdhar, where they created five world records, according to the journey supervisor Mark who is in charge of the programme in the Sultanate.

“The programme develops self- confidence and the personal skills of the challengers,” said Mal Allah Bin Ahmed Al Biraiki, coordinator of the vocational guidance department in Al Musannah.

The students appreciated the initiative and expressed their massive happiness of participating in such international programme which promotes the challenge trend and adventure.
