The British School of Kuwait (BSK) hosted its annual Spring Carnival on Saturday, 4 February. The event was organized by a dedicated group of Sixth Form students, and was in aid of the Kuwait Red Crescent Society, Teenage Cancer Trust (UK), and an underprivileged school in Nepal, which was devastated by the earthquakes that affected the region two years ago. Strong links exist between BSK and the Tawal School, as BSK students have previously visited and undertaken community service at the school as part of their Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.
The event was officially opened by the Ambassador of the Republic of South Korea H.E. Yoo Yeonchul, and BSK Sixth Form Coordinator, Dr. Clifford Cheung.
There was plenty for all to do, with a wide variety of games and activity stalls run by Sixth Form students, such as face-painting, arts and crafts, and photobooth. There were various activities taking place on stage – including student performances, live music from BSK’s Brass group, and a children’s magic show. The Spring Carnival Dodgeball Competition was well contested, with teams competing to win prizes supplied by Fantasy World, and Soak the Teacher was as popular as ever. The event also featured many vendors, including both well-known names and independent local businesses.
BSK is pleased to lead the way in promoting social responsibility as part of its philosophy of education, something which the senior students have exemplified in having organised such a successful charitable event.
The generous contributions of Platinum Sponsors played an important role in the success of the event, and BSK would like to thank the following organisations for their support: Party Boutique, Kefan Optic, iSmile and Fantasy World.
BSK is also proud to acknowledge the invaluable support of Gold Sponsors: Prime Bites, Derma Health Clinic and Colour Me Mine. The event was a great success, and the organisers are delighted to announce that almost KD 2000 was raised for three very worthy causes.
