Independence Day 2017 celebrated

Independence Day was celebrated on 15th August at Al Qamar with great fervour.

We were honoured to have Dr. Sultan Ismail, noted scientist, conservationist, ecologist and educationist, as the Chief Guest.

Dr. Ismail spoke about the key importance of certain values - punctuality, cleanliness, healthy eating as vital to our nation. He encouraged the children to take inspiration from the national flag in their eating habits - but including something orange, white and green in their food daily.

Dr. Ismail gave away the Annual Awards for 2016 and honoured the prize winners from last year. He also visited the exhibition of books written by Al Qamar students on environmental and social issues.

The young students presented a cultural program - with speeches and songs.
