This report about the celebration of UAE National day by some of the very young of Fujairah is written and submitted by Shamsun Nahar Sherin, Class Teacher of Reception 2F at Our Own English High School, Fujairah.
Week Long Celebrations
The week long celebrations for 40 years of Peace and Prosperity concluded on Thursday 17th Nov 2011 on a high note with 'Daddies' sharing information about this beautiful country, UAE, with the classmates of their children.
Awareness and Pride
The awareness of UAE and their pride to be part of this country has grown 100 fold among the children, staff, the parents and the community at large.
The focus of each activity was the coming together of the school community as a whole with social and civil community. The signal of the success was participation that was at a maximum in every event.
The highlights of the week were as follows:
+ Watching parent and child together put their palm (hand) prints on the banner in the colours of the UAE flag.
+ The presence at the kindergarten of people doing UAE crafts.
+ Children dressed in traditional clothes singing their love for UAE while parading in the corridors of Our Own Fujairah.
+ The Special assembly conducted by the IGCSE parents which strengthened our partnership.
+ Building family spirit in 'the traditional food sharing' when Guardians on Wheels (bus drivers and conductors) and Our Hardy Helpers (maids, watchmen & other workers of the school) joined in the celebrations.
+ The delightful date with the fruit of the desert and the Green Coast Nursery Official Partner, Mrs. Bosseineh Khazal.
+ The visit with a token of traditional sweets to the offices of: Ministry of Education, Municipality, Customs, Emirates Court, Fire department, Police Department, Free Zone, Media, Immigration and five neighboring schools. Children sang the 'I love UAE' song and announced 'Our Own Fujairah salutes The Nation' much to the delight of the executive staff in every office.
