Muscat: In line with its commitment to achieve excellence in all educational spheres, including Special Education, the Pakistan School Muscat has provided a platform to special students to put all their abilities into action.
And giving practical firmament to all that such students have imbibed in school, is the global fast food chain, McDonalds extending to them a taste of the real working environment as it is for on-job-trainees.
Besides boosting confidence of the specially-abled children and enabling them to participate in practical life walks of life and becoming significant members of the community, such endeavour is also earning for them rewards such as monthly financial incentives, courtesy McDonalds.
In this way, the PSM has achieved the distinction of educating the selected students in a way that accommodates their individual differences, disabilities and special needs which require individually planned and systematically monitored arrangement of teaching procedures, adapted equipment and materials and accessible settings, thus helping the students achieve a higher level of personal self-sufficiency and success in school and in their community which may not be available if the student were only given access to a typical classroom education.
Mcdonalds, on the other hand, is allowing the students to work at their outlet, thus underlining the food chain’s belief in promoting an environment that enables all employees to achieve their best, regardless of circumstances. It is working with employees with different abilities and ensuring they are given a platform from which to reach their full potential and become the boundary-pushing innovators of the future.
