Salalah International School has a long-standing commitment to sharing its resources with communities, both local and international. The community outreach program was created to generate opportunities for students of Salalah International School to become actively engaged in service-related initiatives within the school, the community and the world.
The program works towards fulfilling the vision and mission of Salalah International School by empowering our students to fully engage in them. The community outreach program develops leadership through service.
Through consistent and sustained voluntary efforts, service becomes a lifelong commitment. Working together with those we serve, we broaden our awareness to embrace the commonalities of all human beings, overcome bias and fear, develop organizational and leadership skills, and instil a sense of civic responsibility and service into our daily lives.
The community outreach program strives to initiate the incorporation and implementation of the objectives of a service learning model into the existing school curriculum. This enriches the classroom environment for students and fosters learning through experience beyond the walls of a classroom.
