EXPO 2020 - Message from the Head of Primary

05 November 2019

  • mike wolfe

“The youth should play a key part in this mega event. They will get opportunities to observe, learn and contribute creative ideas so they can develop innovative solutions for creating a better future for our region and the world.”
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. 

We are constantly amazed by the ever-changing landscape of the UAE and having lived here for 13 years, I thought that the day when building projects shocked me were long gone.  Yesterday however, I was invited to represent our school at an EXPO 2020 meeting for school leaders. There I gained a privileged view of the EXPO 2020 site, and enjoyed presentations showcasing what the event will offer our students from FS Nursery through to IB. The ambitious scale and development of this project is highly impressive.

The school section of EXPO 2020 will focus on four unique journeys designed to inspire the UAE school community. They are:

  • The Universe in Motion
  • The Sustainable Planet 
  • The Legacy of the UAE
  • The World of Opportunities.

The artistic design and computer-generated videos of these areas are certainly inspiring and something I would encourage you to experience when it officially opens. Some firsts from previous EXPO’s include:

  • Philadelphia 1876 – Telephone
  • Paris 1889 – Eiffel Tower
  • St Louis 1904 – Ice Cream Cone
  • Osaka 1970 – IMAX Film

One thing for certain about Expo 2020 is that there will be more firsts, the questions is, what will they be?

Mike Wolfe, Head of Primary
