GEMS Royal Dubai School: Leading the Way into the Future
As GEMS Royal Dubai School, we commit to enabling individuals to grow and achieve, with small classes allowing our teachers to know each child and therefore provide individual help and guidance. We aim to encourage the children to develop strength of character and gain a desire for life-long learning. Furthermore, we are committed to providing an education that will truly empower our students to lead the way in an increasingly competitive, technology-based, global economy.
Not only is the school very well equipped with an iMac suite and a PC suite, interactive whiteboards (1 in every classroom) and laptops, children also have opportunities to use Apple MacBooks, iPads, iPod Touch and iPhone technology, web-conferencing facilities, Lego Mindstorms and Beebot robotics kits, Digi-Blu stop-frame animation cameras, video and digital cameras, mp3 recorders and a range of other hardware, software and Internet-based tools.
Children in Years 1-6 are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptops, iPads and mobile devices to school. This scheme has been highly successful in increasing learners’ independent study and ICT skills, as well as promoting awareness of Internet safety and responsible online practice.
A GEMS Royal Dubai School education nurtures and inspires, unlocking the potential of every child. Our pupils are respectful, happy, creative achievers of whom we are enormously proud. One of the primary reasons for this is that we have a highly experienced, ICT Team, which works with teachers , children and parents to ensure that the vast array of cutting-edge technology at their disposal is fully utilised to enhance learning at all levels and across the curriculum.
The school has its own Facebook page and Twitter and YouTube accounts, which supplement the year group and specialist blogs, as we share achievements and support our families in engaging with their children’s learning beyond the school gates.
At GEMS Royal Dubai School, our children are not just students, but leaders in the field of technology and, as such, are regularly invited to showcase their achievements at technology events such as BETT Middle East and the Gulf Education Forum. Our expectations for your children at our GEMS British school are high; at whatever stage of their education through a creative curriculum, we will inspire them to have a passion for learning that will be the key to their futures.
