Global Indian International School Dubai Announces its Innovation Programme, Qutuhal

by Eddie Rayner

Global Indian International School (GIIS) Dubai is organising the fourth season of Qutuhal. This year, the competition is based on three powerful values: Curiosity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship.

Qutuhal is an exciting series of workshops and competitions, where students nurture their curiosity, creativity, and ideas to innovate and co-create knowledge. There are nine weekly challenges, each with a different theme.

Qutuhal is a multi-award winner for Quality and Innovation in Education from Dubai Quality Group (DQG), Indian Society for Quality (ISQ), and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) to name a few since the year 2019, and are on the fourth season of Qutuhal this year. Last year’s competition saw a participation of 2500 students across 35 schools globally.

Weekly Challenge questions will be posted through the social media channels of GIIS Dubai for all participants. Students should complete the modeling challenge, submit their videos online and add their weekly points through the Qutuhal Rewards portal to claim cash awards during the Grand Finale.

A unique and carefully crafted programme for encouraging inquisitiveness in young minds
