SIS-Yas Island Celebrates U.A.E.’s 44th National Day
On Monday, November 30, 2015, the SABIS® International School – Yas Island community came together to celebrate the U.A.E.’s 44th National Day.
To mark the occasion, SIS-Yas Island students came to school wearing either traditional dress or dressed in the U.A.E. flag colors—red, green, white, and black. The celebration kicked off at 2:30 p.m. with a welcome speech by one of the students. The entire SIS-Yas Island community also observed a minute of silence in remembrance of the nation’s martyrs followed by the national anthem. Grade 2 students then performing the traditional U.A.E. Yola dance.
The event was a huge success that was dominated by a lively atmosphere and high spirits. Guests enjoyed the freshly cooked traditional food as well as Arabic tea and coffee. Parents and teachers were eager to celebrate along with the students as there were exciting activities for everyone to join. The henna station, the falcon photo booth, lougaimat station, camel and horse rides, and the bouncy castle were the most popular attractions enjoyed by students and guests alike.
SIS-Yas Island would like to thank all those who attended the event. A special thank you to parents who were actively involved in making the first national day celebration at the school a memorable day for everyone.
