Things Officially Coming to a Close at Ibri College


This was from an official ceremony a few weeks back at Al Masarat Hall in Ibri College

Some dates on campus

The semester has ended! Classes are over as are the final exams. Marking of the final exams has also been completed (apart from a few teachers still working on marking year 1 exams this week). For the next 3 weeks, teachers will be coming into their offices but there is no work to do really. Even the cafeterias are closed which make it even harder and more boring sitting around waiting for vacation to officially start…Really looking forward to going home soon!

People Around Ibri College


Marhoon from Administration. Interesting name…”Marhoon” means “mortgage” in Arabic

Marilyn, who is from New Zealand, has been here at Ibri College about 6 weeks now. She is looking very glamorous here as her shirt just happened to match the paint on the office door!

Mr. Hilal Mohammed Nasser Al Kharousi is one of my new AS (Applied Sciences) students this semester. He always has questions for me as I’m leaving the classroom; a very engaging student!

Mr. Hamadi Dhaou is another of my colleagues in the English Department here at Ibri College. He is from Tunisia, has been teaching at Ibri College for 3 years, has a PhD and speaks 6 languages including Malay and Russian. He is one of my more cheerful colleagues and I’ve never heard him say a bad thing about anyone which is quite refreshing.

A man’s home IS his castle in Oman


                          Some of the homes in Oman are pretty amazing! This house, located directly across from Jonathan and Blair’s place, is one quick example.

Ibri College Student Performance


Here is our college auditorium, Masarat Hall. The boys sit on one side and the girls on the other with the first few rows reserved for teachers.

This is my student, Ali Mohammed Ali, reading from the Koran at the beginning of the show.

This is Ibrahim who directed the whole evening of entertainment. He is also the group leader of my FY12 class. (The Arabic reads, “Ibri College of Applied Sciences”)

This is my student, Naef, juggling a few rifles while other students do a “traditional cane dance” in the background.

Check out these videos I took while there as a guest:

The background photo is of the first group of graduates from Ibri College at their graduation a few weeks ago.

This is a photo of students doing a small play. It is hard to see, but there is one girl in the picture wearing black. She was the only female in the whole production and her role was that of a flight attendant.
