JESS joins in with the #Readin7 @Elfdubai Challenge
Monday, Nov 21, 2016
Tying in with the recent laws allowing UAE Government staff 'reading' time; The Emirates Literature Foundation #Readin7 initiative yesterday brought seven minutes of silent reading to the classrooms and office spaces at JESS and also around other schools of the 7 Emirates. An intellectual journey, a different perspective, a moment to escape and a challenge to endure and/or share, as staff and students engaged in seven minutes of enjoyment and reflection for this event. It's interesting to note that, despite technology, students and staff alike still have not lost touch with a good old book!
