ABU DHABI: The Global Indian International School (GIIS), Abu Dhabi, is now the first school in the UAE to introduce ‘Photography’ as a subject to it’s students.

GIIS announced Monday that the lesson on photography which the students will be taking on a regular basis will be a part of their curriculum, but this will not be a graded subject.

Understanding that education and self-expression go hand in hand and play a major role in helping a child’s growth and development, GIIS Abu Dhabi in association with Nikon Middle East has made photography classes a part of their very curriculum.

Through these classes, the children will gradually be given a complete understanding of the medium and the use of professional equipment. It will help them express themselves better and develop visual perception. That will in turn allow them to explore a whole new world of their own where they can even choose to pursue photography as a career if they wish to.

Not wanting to measure creative skills against any pre-set criteria, these classes are purely meant to enhance every student’s creativity, confidence, and focus.

Amol Vaidya, Director Operations, GIIS said, “We have always focused on the overall development of our students to make them global citizens of tomorrow. We are thankful to Nikon for this initiative and we feel it’s great steps towards the overall development of our students. Photography is known to substantially increase focus and understand the expressions of life. This is a great opportunity for our students to learn while having fun as well and to capture and understand the best expressions of life.”
