Ignite Schools Workshop Powered By Canon @ Safa British School, Dubai


In May, we had the pleasure of visiting the Year 6 students at Safa British School in Dubai. This visit followed our successful engagement with their Year 5 students in April. Over the course of three days, we interacted with six enthusiastic classes, providing each student the opportunity to explore their creativity with a Canon camera.

The experience was nothing short of inspiring. Every student embraced the chance to capture unique moments around the school, showcasing their individual perspectives through photography. The creativity and enthusiasm of these young photographers were evident in the incredible photos they produced.

Our sessions were designed to be both educational and fun, allowing students to learn the basics of photography while experimenting with different techniques. From framing and composition to lighting and perspective, the students demonstrated a keen interest and impressive skill.

One of the highlights of our visit was witnessing the students’ excitement as they discovered the capabilities of their cameras. It was a joy to see them apply new concepts and take pride in their work. Their enthusiasm and creativity reaffirmed the importance of nurturing artistic skills from a young age.

We are grateful to Safa British School for welcoming us and providing such a wonderful environment for fostering young talent. Seeing the students’ growth and passion for photography was truly rewarding.

We look forward to continuing this journey and visiting Safa British School again in 2025. Our goal remains to inspire and support the next generation of photographers, and we can’t wait to see what new creative heights the students will achieve next year.

Stay tuned for more updates and photos from our visits!

Ignite and Saf British school in Dubai, recently hosted a stimulating event over two days that left students ignited with creativity and learning. The event included a series of workshops designed to engage students in various educational activities. One particular highlight was the dedicated workshop tailored for the Year 5 students.

During this two-hour workshop, the students delved into the fascinating world of photography with a focus on understanding the functionalities of a Canon camera. Under the guidance of experienced instructors, the young learners explored the intricate features of the camera, gaining insights into composition, lighting, and framing.

After familiarizing themselves with the technical aspects, the students embarked on a hands-on session where they applied their newfound knowledge. Venturing across the school grounds, they captured snapshots of their surroundings, infusing creativity into each frame.

The practical session not only honed their photography skills but also instilled a sense of observation and appreciation for their environment. As they clicked away, they discovered beauty in the mundane, transforming ordinary scenes into captivating images.

Following the photography expedition, each student carefully selected and printed a couple of photographs to cherish and share with their loved ones. These printed mementos served as tangible evidence of their exploration and achievement, symbolizing the culmination of their efforts during the workshop.

Beyond acquiring technical skills, the workshop fostered teamwork, communication, and self-expression among the participants. Through collaboration and feedback, students not only learned from instructors but also from each other, creating a vibrant learning community within the classroom.

The culmination of the workshop left the Year 5 students brimming with excitement and pride as they showcased their photographic creations to their families and friends. The event not only enriched their academic journey but also ignited a passion for creativity and exploration that will continue to inspire them in their educational endeavour’s.
