The British School of Kuwait (BSK) takes pride in the diversity of the community it serves and joins with students, parents and teachers in celebrating this wealth of cultures and customs at various times through the year.
With Kuwait’s National Day being observed on 25 February, students from both the Primary and Secondary phases at BSK contributed to a golden performance in celebration of Kuwaiti culture.
Under the expert tutelage of Arabic Coordinator Hanan Haggag, students displayed all their mercurial talents through dance, song and unrivalled high spirits, in the Shakespeare theatre at the BSK.
In the morning, at Wembley playground, there was a special flag ceremony featuring the music of the junior development orchestra, and some traditional Kuwaiti musicians and singers. The children presented the flag to Mme Vera Al Mutawa, MBE and cheered and waved their flags to rapturous applause.
The audience was overcome by the emotion of the occasion as students sang, danced in the traditional Kuwaiti manner and poured forth their praise for their motherland. Kuwaiti and expatriate students alike celebrated this moment.
BSK is pleased to be leading the way in ensuring that families, no matter their nationality, are learning about the richness of the traditions of this wonderful country. While BSK is already renowned in the Arabian Gulf as delivering the ‘Best of British’, let it be clearly understood that the school also cares deeply for its generous host country.
