Wednesday, January 31, 2018

On Wednesday 31 January, SQCC hosted a group of sixth graders of Charles Hart Middle School. Students toured SQCC’s permanent exhibition, where they learned about traditional Omani dresses, handicrafts such as pottery, basketry, silver artwork and woodworkingas well as the aflaj irrigation system. Students also learned about Omani forts, ships, and trade. Later on the group participated in a cultural lecture about Omani culture, people, food, traditions, and environment. After the tour and lecture, students mingled with SQCC staffers and visited SQCC’s library and learned more about Oman through a wide range of publications about cultural heritage in both English and Arabic.
