International Baccalaureate Career Programme students from Greenfield Community School recently spent the long weekend working as marshals at the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters golf tournament held at the Emirates Golf Club.

Grade 11 & 12 students were involved as part of their Service Learning project where they supervised key locations at the tournament. They met many of the players and also received positive comments from the event organisers, Golf in Dubai and officials from the Ladies European Tour.

Grade 11 student Bradley Woods said ‘it was a great opportunity to work as a team and to develop our event management skills’, and student Maisie Sharp added ‘I really enjoyed being out on the golf course to see the players up close and to see how well they play; it was amazing to be a part of this event. It was also great to be part of the presentation ceremony and meet His Highness Shaikh Hasher bin Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum and the winner Shanshan Feng’. Congratulations and well done to all the IBCP students.
