Let’s Read- The Stories of Our Ancestors

The ELC research committee took part in the prize distribution ceremony of the writing competition conducted by Let’s Read in Qurum Complex on 20/5/17.

This is part of ELC RCC’s attempt to come up with a reader for our foundation students. The committee is exploring the possibilities of using one or two inspiring stories from the competition.

The themes of the stories were wide-ranging and Jane Jaffer, the organizer of the competition, recollected one story written by an Omani student where he wrote about his two grandfathers fighting for two different factions in the Jebel AlAkthar war. The quality of the entries was remarkable and these stories might be of great interest to our students.

More importantly, these stories, we sincerely hope, would teach them the importance of history both at the micro and macro level.
