Qatar National Day Celebrations

On Thursday 15th December we celebrated Qatar National Day (official celebration date is 18th December).

Staff and pupils came to school wearing traditional Qatari dress or items of clothing that represented Qatar.

During the morning pupils took part in a series of activities aimed at increasing their knowledge of the country that we live in and its customs and traditions. There was traditional music and dancing, henna hand art and we particularly enjoyed having our photographs taken with the majestic falcon. Parents were invited to join us for a special National Day assembly, in which we entertained them with dancing and traditional stories about the history of Qatar. This was followed by a family picnic outside.
