Dear Parents, Many thanks to all who turned out to the Winter Festival last Saturday. We had over 800 guests join us and we managed to raise 17,000 QAR, all of which will be distributed to charities, including the Qatar Charity Funds, who sponsor children in developing countries to go to school, and to the Qatar Cancer Society. It really was a lovely event with artisan goods on sale and wonderful musical performances and activities to entertain us. Qatar National Day Celebrations We will be holding a whole school assembly on Wednesday 12 December to celebrate Qatar National Day. Parents are invited to attend the celebration from 1:00pm to 2:00pm.
