Dubai Expo 2020
A once in a lifetime event for our students!
UAE school students in 2020 will take part in a range of educational experiences associated with the Expo 2020!
At Reach British School, wherever possible, we use the culture, heritage and future of the UAE as a starting point for our children’s learning, and with Dubai presenting Expo 2020 to the world, this will be even more relevant than ever.
The school principal and several other staff have already been appointed as official Expo 2020 volunteers and will further promote learning based on Expo 2020 across the school.
About Expo 2020
Dubai Expo 2020 will bring together countries and international organisations into one platform to share knowledge and to showcase technology that will promote collaboration in global education, creative innovation and social progress. The global mega event will now run from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022, a delay that allows all participants to safely navigate the impact of COVID-19, and allows the World Expo to focus on a collective desire for new thinking to identify solutions to some of the greatest challenges of our time. The mega event will run at a specially constructed 438-hectare site near Al Maktoum International Airport in the Dubai South District.
Expo 2020 Themes – UAE Legacy
Dubai Expo is built on the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, promoting cooperation among people from different fields and backgrounds to foster innovation and progress. This is underpinned by the sub-themes: UAE Legacy, Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability, all of which offer a platform for educational and knowledge development. Our school will focus on the Expo 2020 theme of the UAE legacy. Students will discover more about the UAE’s rich culture and heritage as well as its plans for a brighter future. They will also see the mesmerising architecture of the UAE pavilion, designed in the shape of a falcon in flight.
At the Expo in 2020, there will be four unique journeys designed to inspire students through fun, and transformative learning experiences and our children will get a chance to visit all the pavilions at this once-in-a-lifetime event.
Expo 2020 Curriculum and Projects
Dubai Expo offers outstanding learning opportunities for students as part of the Expo School Programme in a range of fields. Through this journey, Reach’s students will explore the various aspects of the UAE from the past to the present. They will understand the incredible vision for the future, discover the unique treasures that lie within the UAE’s rich culture and heritage, and reflect on the importance of unity, collaboration and innovation. Students will appreciate the rapid progress and development of such a young nation.
Below are some themes and topics that we will explore in the class as part of this exciting event.
