Visit to RC Environmental Dept.
Jeel Yanbu International School arranged a visit for a small group of students from KS 4 to RC Environmental Dept. under the supervision of Ms. Bara’ah Abu-Qulbein on Tuesday 20th February, 2018. The purpose of this visit was to show students’ how professionals deal with environment problems such as pollution from investigations and tests to prevention.
RC Environmental Dept. is located in Radhwa 3 in a beautiful area neighboring a park and recreation center. The students arrived there under the supervision of the Academic Coordinator, Ms. Sara P. M. Shah. The dept. staff under the supervision of Acting Director, Eng. Mr. Abdullah warmly welcomed the students and moved towards the Conference room where they had an elaborative presentation presented by Eng. Adnan, about their work and achievements regarding pollution and how pollution is prevented in a Smart and Industrial City of Royal Commission. Students had few questions and they were answered thoroughly during this session.
Students also visited three labs where they were shown different equipment to deal with polluted liquid/solid pollutants and how they were removed or treated. The dept. authority assured that the drinking water which is sent to the houses is better than the mineral water. They assured that the smoke and gases coming out of the refineries are under control and in a low range zone which are not harmful to people.
The students were provided with descriptive information and were very happy and excited with this educational trip. It could not be done without the support of School’s Academic Principal Mrs. Bara’ah Abu Qulbein.
The school is looking forward to arrange such educational and informative trip more in future.

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 Alhussan International School – Yanbu has celebrated the Multicultural Day.
It is a great opportunity to describe to the students about the different cultures, how it shapes our identity and influences our behavior in an interesting way.
Cultural diversity can be represented by: human behaviors, expressive forms such as art, music, dance, ritual and religion. In addition to that, cooking, shelter and clothing.
Teachers have prepared corners representing different countries and presented national dishes and items.
Students came to school beautifully dressed in traditional clothing. They had performed amazing performances on the stage about the country that they are represented.

Annual Science Fair 2018
“A theory can be proved by experiment, but no path leads from
experiment to the birth of a theory.”
The second annual Science Fair was held at Jeel Yanbu
International School on the 22nd of February 2018. The event is
annually organised with a view to encourage and inculcate a scientific temper amongst students in order to showcase their talents in Science.
Distinct venues were allotted for different sectors in science where students can display their projects for presenting. As one entered the Play Ground area itself, one could feel the pulse and the magnitude of the event! The entire school was a buzz with this activity.
The day was scheduled to begin at 10:30 am. Higher grades students from five and above presented their projects on organized tables in the playground where the lower primary grades displayed their projects inside their building hallways.
We are so proud of all our participants ranging from first to ten grades and with the guidance and support of our science teacher none-stop. Our school comes together as a community to celebrate this great learning experience and the children were all winners as they grow in confidence and their understanding of science.
Big thanks to our external judges who has contributed from RISY – Indian Section evaluating the student’s projects.
Last but not the least; the fair was a huge success. Enthusiasm and effervescence overflowed amongst students, their teachers and visitors.
