The assembly was conducted in Arabic, with a message on the National Day and with children singing Arabic songs. The students clapped and swayed to the music, waving the flag and saluting the UAE. All members of the School were dressed in the traditional Arab attire or dresses portraying the colours of the UAE flag.
The excitement was not only limited at the assembly but was also transferred to discussions and conversations within the classrooms. The teaching and drilling on that day was focused on UAE related topics, Writing Activity on ”UAE – Then and Now” and lot more other activities. During the break time the students had their faces painted with the colours of the UAE flag and national songs were played throughout the break.
