ETC Celebrates Year-End Gathering and Family Day 2023

The Educational Technology Center (ETC) marked a significant milestone by hosting its inaugural family day and annual year-end gathering at the Multi-Purpose Hall on June 14, 2023. 

Kicking off the event, ETC Head, Mr. Ahmed Al Saidi, warmly welcomed everyone in attendance and took the opportunity to highlight the Center's accomplishments based on the annual projection/action planning. He expressed heartfelt gratitude to all the ETC staff, acknowledging their unwavering dedication, commitment, and hard work. 

The event featured an array of engaging games and activities for children, accompanied by special gifts for each participant. ETC staff members, along with their families, both Omani and Non-Omanis, also participated in the enjoyable festivities. 

The highlight of the gathering was the presentation of certificates to all staff, recognizing and appreciating each member of the ETC Family for their invaluable contributions to the center since its establishment in 2006. Staff members were honored with awards based on their years of service, including: 

  • 18 years of service award 

  • 15 years of service award 

  • 10 years of service award 

  • 5 years of service award 


Furthermore, staff members with less than five years of service were also recognized with awards for their dedicated service. 

The center also acknowledged an "Employee of the Year" from each section of the Center (ESS, CSS, LS). Ms. Muthla Al Sabri from ESS, Mr. Johnson Gurrea from CSS, and Ms. Fatma Al Balushi from LS were among the standout recipients based on ETC's rewards and recognition matrix. 

Mr. Ahmed Al Saidi emphasized the center's conviction that its true strength lies in the talented and skilled individuals who make up the ETC team. Recognizing and honoring their contributions serves as a driving force to continuously strive for excellence and perfection. 

The event concluded on a joyful note with a celebratory party meticulously prepared by the center, providing an opportunity for all attendees to further bond and celebrate the achievements of the ETC community.
