First ‘Forest’ Planted in Al Ain

by admin

Brighton College Al Ain has launched the first official Forest School in Al Ain, which will provide holistic development for students, promote creativity, resilience, confidence, independence, and supported risk taking. Some of the planned activities students will experience include using tools, natural artwork, mini-beast hunts, building shelters, exploring, and making observations about the flora and fauna. 

Jon McArthur, the junior school headmaster, explains: “Having experienced the huge benefits for children, both physically and mentally, of Forest Schools in the UK, we here at Brighton College Al Ain aim to tap into those benefits by educating children in the fresh air, right here in the desert.”
