BSK sup­ports Sidra As­so­ci­a­tion

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

For a num­ber of years now the co­or­di­na­tion of global ef­forts to raise aware­ness of Breast Can­cer has meant that ed­u­ca­tional and fundrais­ing events in this area have be­come firmly es­tab­lished as im­por­tant events on the an­nual cal­en­dar at this time of year. The Bri­tish School of Kuwait (BSK) has been as­so­ci­ated with this most wor­thy of causes for over ten years now and this year was, of course, no ex­cep­tion. First launched back in 2002, the fundrais­ing ba­ton has since been passed to suc­ces­sive groups of stu­dents who, led by the Sixth Form, work to­gether to or­ga­nize a month long pro­gram of events.

This year the Pink Satur­day pro­gram of ac­tiv­i­ties was co­or­di­nated by Year 13 stu­dents Ab­dul­rah­man Alsaleh, Leena Al­bader, and Joe­sephina Saager in sup­port of Al Sidra As­so­ci­a­tion for Psy­cho­log­i­cal Care of Can­cer Pa­tients. As al­ways, there has been a wide range of fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties tak­ing place through­out the month, the high­light of which was un­doubt­edly the Pink Satur­day event that took place on Satur­day 17 Oc­to­ber 2015. A host of Sixth Form stu­dent-led ac­tiv­i­ties were on of­fer, in­clud­ing face-paint­ing, arts cor­ner, sport­ing chal­lenges, and the ever pop­u­lar Soak the Teacher! Among the en­ter­tain­ment pro­vided on stage were per­for­mances from the BSK RandB mu­sic group led by Si­mon Amura, and the BAIA Dance group led by Al­ley Hunter. An­other high­light was the BSK Staff Bake-off, fea­tur­ing stun­ning baked cre­ations by staff at the school. Rep­re­sent­ing Al Sidra at the event were Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Manal Shadeed, Clinic Co­or­di­na­tor She­bina Am­lani, and In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer Karen Web­ster.

BSK is proud to lead the way in pro­mot­ing so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity as part of its phi­los­o­phy of ed­u­ca­tion, some­thing which the se­nior stu­dents have ex­em­pli­fied in hav­ing or­ga­nized such a suc­cess­ful event in aid of so wor­thy a cause. BSK is pleased to ac­knowl­edge the in­valu­able sup­port of IFA In­ter­na­tional Travel and Tourism, Al­sayer Group Hold­ing (Toy­ota), Aroob­fit Cen­tre, and the Re­gency Ho­tel Kuwait whose gen­eros­ity has helped raise al­most KD3000 so far, and en­sured the suc­cess of the event. BSK would also like to thank Alexia Lodge, the wife of HE the Bri­tish Am­bas­sador; Cather­ine Sil­li­man, the wife of HE the Amer­i­can Am­bas­sador; Viv An­thony, Pres­i­dent of the Bri­tish Ladies So­ci­ety Kuwait; Lynda Van Green­stone, Pres­i­dent of the AWL; Michelle Black­ett, Pres­i­dent of the IWG; and Manal Shadeed, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of Al-Sidra As­so­ci­a­tion, for join­ing Madame Vera Al­Mutawa, Di­rec­tor and Founder of BSK, on stage to open this spe­cial event.
