Thank you for your presence on International Day. Our children presented a fine programme of singing, dancing, poetry and fashion. We are proud of our children and of the spirit of global unity that they project. Your contributions of delicious food and decorations for display were greatly appreciated and we thank you heartily for them. I wish to extend special words of thanks to Mrs. Al-Kuwari and Mrs. Suri, who gave much of their time to help decorate the Asia room with teachers and children on the afternoon preceding the event.
