On Sunday, 16th December, we celebrated Qatar National Day at our school. This celebration gives the students, parents and teachers of SEK Qatar a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the many aspects of Qatari culture.
Every term, our students take time to study the Qatari culture, traditions and rich heritage and in this oportunity, we had a great variety of student artworks on display around the Main Hall. We also enjoyed face painting and henna and a chance to play traditional Qatari games.
Meanwhile on the stage there were a variety of performances from PYP and MYP students, including the henna night Dance from Grade 5 and 6 Girls, a poem and play written by Grade 8 students and the traditional sword dance performed by PYP boys. MYP music students were proud to give recital of the Qatar National Anthem.
In addition, we enjoyed traditional food and drinks and we would like to send a special thanks to all of the students, school staff and parents that helped us to make this joyous event happen!
We are glad to have shared with all the visitors this special day in honour of Qatar National Day 2018.
