Reading for All!
Under the motto “Reading for All”, the Arabic department at St Christopher’s organised the “Reading Week for 2015 – 2016 in the Senior School”. All students in Years 7 – 11 participated in this important event. A number of reading booklets were prepared for this year to encourage students to read the Arabic language for enjoyment and benefit for all. The students showed their love for their national language through perseverance and interaction with their teachers.
The staff in the Arabic Department concentrated on the skill of reading through enjoyable and beneficial activities to raise the standards of students in this highly important skill of language acquisition as it is considered to be one of the basic skills in Arabic language, bearing in mind that all examinations concentrate on the two skills of reading and writing. In this respect, I reiterate the fact that the family plays a vital role in encouraging the students to read as this plants the seeds of loving the language of the Quran. The Head of Senior School visited some of the these activities and praised the staff and students for their efforts and I thank the staff of the Arabic department in the Senior School for their great efforts ( Mrs Radwan, Mrs Al Omar, and Mrs Rehab) in making this week a great success for all our students. Well done to all of you!
