One of a kind STEAM facility to open in the academic year 2019-2020
Following the recently-awarded ‘Outstanding’ rating by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), Horizon English School (HES) has announced further enhancements to its educational offering, by means of a truly unique STEAM facility at its Jumeirah campus. Set to open in September 2019, HES will be home to a cutting-edge, purpose built STEAM facility - an innovative learning space where children will be able to learn through open ended enquiry, while encouraging them to consider their moral impact. The new facility will include the latest technology such as robotics, hydroponics and artificial intelligence. Learning, through the use of hydroponics to provide solutions to food shortages and the use of 3D printing to mass produce writing aids for people with disabilities are some of the examples of how the curriculum programmes are designed to nurture the students’ moral obligation for the benefit of others.
Upgraded swimming pool
Also set to open in September 2019 the school will have a new fully shaded 25m swimming pool, which will also have purpose built spectator seating for 140. The new swimming pool will be used by all students. Alongside the main pool there will also be a new splash pool also fully shaded which is available for the Foundation year students.
