During Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursdays’ morning assemblies, students were refreshed with some important facts about Kings and rulers of Saudi Arabia over the decade’s, and the different regions of Saudi Arabia.
On Tuesday, September 18, the school’s function hall was transformed into the folkloric ground with a clannish setup, and a corner with many antiques representing different regions of KSA was displayed for the entire school to get the tribal sensation. Some students came in traditional dresses, costumes representing different occupations found in KSA, and in green t-shirts. The green coloured spirit was evident throughout the school.
