TSK celebrates Kuwait National and Liberation Days
March 8, 2018, 1:36 pm

The Sunshine Kindergarten (TSK) in Salwa celebrated Kuwait’s National and Liberation Days by transforming the school into 'Little Kuwait'. The children of TSK have been learning all about Kuwait during the days leading up to the country's National and Liberation days as Kuwait is special to them all. It is a place that all students, staff and parents call home although many originate from other countries. The term ended with a wonderful celebration day with all staff, children and parents being involved.

TSK has continued with the parent workshop style events this year, which has been a huge hit with the parents. These events encouraged parents to get involved in all activities and truly get to know what the British style Early Years curriculum is all about.

On the day, children and staff dressed in Kuwaiti National Dress or the colours of the Kuwaiti flag and hundreds of parents came to celebrate the special day with their children. A parade was held in the British School of Kuwait (BSK) Marble Arch arena as the KG children prepare for the transition to Reception next year. The children walked on to the stage and around the arena waving Kuwait flags to the echoes of traditional Kuwaiti music and the sound of cheering and clapping from parents and VIP guests. The BSK Scouts presented a flag ceremony before everyone stood for the Kuwait National anthem.

The TSK students and staff were then treated to a wonderful program of performances by the British School of Kuwait students. Reception and Year 4 aged children performed 'Ahl As-slam' and 'Kuwait Al-Habiba'. The surprise character guests, Abu Jasoom and Mrs Jasoom added to the celebratory atmosphere. Parents and children loved having their photographs taken with them. All guests were then invited to explore the Souk and Heritage exhibition while there were performances by the Kuwaiti Habban band.

After the event at BSK, the children and their parents continued the celebrations at TSK with a host of activities. The Atriums were decorated as Diwaniyas and adorned in Kuwaiti flags and colours. Parents were invited to enjoy coffee, eat dates with labneh, tahini and other Arabic delicacies. 

Miss Heather, the TSK Principal, and the whole TSK Teaching Team say 'Mabrouk Kuwait'.
