September 28, 2017, 12:21 pm

The British Academy of International Arts (BAIA) and The British Academy of Sport (BAS), held their annual Carnival on the BSK campus in Salwa over the weekend. Hundreds of families were keen to attend the first big event of its kind in the new academic year. With a food court located to ‘welcome’ guests as they entered the campus, activities and games for children and some other forty booths, there was something for everyone. A wonderful carnival atmosphere immersed the audience as they watched the German Ambassador to Kuwait H.E. Karlfried Bergner give the official opening to the event. 

The VIP party, led by Madam Vera Al Mutawa MBE, Chairman, Sadiq Al Mutawa toured the BAIA and BAS stands before making their way around the Carnival. BAIA has the most extensive range of accredited and recreational dance courses in Kuwait. These include ballet, tap, jazz and modern dance, all leading to internationally recognized examinations. BAIA also offers a comprehensive range of theatre, music and art courses for children from three years so there was keen interest from children of all ages to sign up.

BAS too has an extensive range of sports activities on offer including swimming, gymnastics, karate, football, basketball, tennis, volleyball and Zumba. In addition, the annual basketball and volleyball tournaments between Embassy teams are an eagerly awaited fixture, as are the overseas educational trips that have proven very popular for a number of years.

The stage was always a focus for activity, with games and competitions arranged by Decathlon, the BAS yearly sponsor, who provided many prizes for the winners. In addition, BAIA and BAS students put on a variety of wonderful displays in dance, Zumba and Karate. Masafi, the yearly sponsor for BAIA and BAS ensured that the spectators were never without a drink, providing a seemingly unlimited supply of water and juices.

IHG Crowne Plaza, yearly sponsor for BAIA and BAS tempted people with their huge variety of BBQ foods and sandwiches whilst Skin Food, a Carnival sponsor were on hand with their range of organic cosmetic products.

A big thanks must go to Cozmo bowling and Kidzania who provided numerous prizes for many of the games. The evening was enjoyed by all, with the many newcomers to Kuwait seeing just how much there is on offer for them and their families from so many of Kuwait’s leading companies.
