COFAS prepares the Jubilee Schools' gifted youth to excel in the world of Information Technology.
26th November 2014

Each year students from the Jubilee School excitedly prepare to participate in COFAS, an International Computer Fair and Seminar, organized by City Montessori Inter College, in India. This year the students were especially eager, as some of them had never traveled, and none had gone anywhere as far or as exotic as India.
 
This year a team of 8 students represented the school among the 800 participants from around the world, with 14 international teams and 60 local Indian teams. The students competed in debates, design competitions, programming and information, computer design, interactive software, drawing and others. The Jubilee School enjoyed victories in the competition, taking home third place prizes in all the categories and a first place prize in the 'Computer Wizard' competition. The Jubilee School is also the only school from Jordan and the Arab region to compete in the competition annually since 2008.
 
COFAS is an international Computer competition that is held once every two years, and is open to the 12-18 age group. The goal of COFAS is to prepare and inspire gifted youth to participate and excel in the world of Information Technology.
 
"This educational competition is in line with the Jubilee School's broader educational objectives and programs," explains Omar Shaghnobi,  Head of Academic Department. He continues to explain that the school's syllabus is based on the philosophy that successful learning takes place through exploration and experimentation by learning outside the classroom.
 
Omar noted that the Jubilee School also pioneered interactive learning and teaching methods for information communication technology based on the school's strategy of adopting the latest technology and communication tools.
 
Since 1993 the Jubilee School provides a unique environment which promotes leadership, critical thinking, cross-cultural understanding, and educates new leaders to be grounded in democratic values, tolerance, conflict resolution, and community service.

The goal of COFAS is to prepare and inspire gifted youth to participate and excel in the world of Information Technology. It has been greatly successful over the years in bringing together education institutions from around India with international counterparts. This allows students from around the world to mingle, grow and learn from each other within an invigorating and inspiring environment.
 
The competition is directly linked to The Jubilee Schools broader educational objectives and programs. The school's syllabus is based on the philosophy that successful learning takes place through exploration and experimentation by learning outside the classroom. The Jubilee School provides a unique environment which promotes leadership, critical thinking, cross-cultural understanding, and educates new leaders to be grounded in democratic values, tolerance, conflict resolution, and community service. Our programs also pioneered interactive learning and teaching methods for information communication technology (ICT) based on the school's strategy of adopting the latest technology and communication tools. Opportunities like COFAS help shape participating students into responsible citizens and internationally aware young adults as well as providing a challenging scientific education.
