The British School of Kuwait (BSK) hosted a presentation ceremony for Colonel Hamad Jaber Al Mari and his team of officers in appreciation of the advice and guidance they have shown to parents, staff and students with parking procedures at the beginning and end of the school day.
Since the beginning of the academic year 2016/2017 Colonel Hamad and his colleagues have been on hand to meet the Senior Management Team, advise on policy and procedures while at the same time taking charge of key crossings and parking locations across the campus of BSK and The Sunshine Kindergarten (TSK). The feedback from parents and staff has been highly positive and as a mark of appreciation a short ceremony was held to honour the members of the team.
BSK Director of Media, Kefah Al Mutawa, acted as MC and welcomed the guests who included BSK Chairman, Sadiq Al Mutawa; BSK Deputy Director Of Finance, Ms Kamelia Al Mutawa; BSK Principal, Mr Paul Shropshire; TSK Principal, Ms Heather Holsgrove as well as colleagues from the management teams of both schools. The ceremony included an address by Sadiq when he thanked the police for their co-operation, help and support to the school community. A response from Lieutenant Colonel Fadhel Mansuor Al Qattan, representing Colonel Hamad, spoke of his happiness at attending such an event and how his team are always at the ready to support the various strands of society with their health and safety procedures.
This was followed by poetry reading from BSK student Abdulwahab Al Mutawa, a Q&A session from Sixth Form students to the police department that was answered by Lieutenant Colonel Bader Ghazi Al Qattan along with a small acting scene from two Year 5 students Abdelraman Abdelhamid and Omar Albeshbishy who portrayed the act of unity in keeping Kuwait safe and law abiding.
Each member of the police team was invited on stage to receive their certificates of appreciation, followed by a lavish breakfast and the opportunity to mingle and reflect on the partnership between BSK and the Police force. Further exchanges are planned during the forthcoming student Assemblies when road safety and safe parking will be a feature of the PSHE education program.
