HCT-Fujairah Women’s campus (FJW) students, faculty and staff have every reason to get sporty this year with the campus celebrating the opening of its new sport department.
To mark the momentous occasion on January 31, FJW students and employees joined in a number of activities, including a Students v Teachers volleyball match on the outdoor sports court.
In a highly entertaining and absorbing match, the students prevailed, winning two of the three sets. The final scores were 8-15, 15-9 and 15-3, giving the students bragging rights until the next match.
The students were filled with excitement at the prospect of having an outlet to engage in a variety of sporting activities, particularly being able to interact with their teachers in an informal manner.
The students said the experience helped develop better ties with their teachers, encouraging easier lines of communication with their teachers.
The teachers also highly enjoyed the match, seeing their students being active in sports. They all agreed to have more of such sport activities to promote health and exercise and fun.
