BSK honors traffic police team
The British School of Kuwait hosted a presentation ceremony for Colonel Hamad Jaber Al-Mari and his team of officers in appreciation of the advice and guidance they have shown to parents, staff and students with parking procedures at the beginning and end of the school day. Since the beginning of the academic year 2015/2016 Colonel Hamad and his colleagues have been on hand to meet the Senior Management Team, advise on policy and procedures while at the same time taking charge of key crossings and parking locations across the campus of The British School of Kuwait (BSK) and The Sunshine Kindergarten (TSK). The feedback from parents and staff has been highly positive and as a mark of appreciation a short ceremony was held to honor the members of the team.
BSK Director of Media, Kefah Al Mutawa, acted as MC and welcomed the guests who included BSK Chairman, Sadiq AlMutawa; BSK Director, Madame Vera Al-Mutawa MBE; BSK Deputy Director Of Finance, Kamelia Al-Mutawa; BSK Principal, Paul Shropshire; TSK Principal, Joanne Wild as well as colleagues from the management tea of both schools.
The ceremony included an address by Sadiq when he thanked the police for their co-operation, help and support to the school community and a response from Colonel Hamad who spoke of his happiness at attending such an event and how his team are always at the ready to support the various strands of society with their health and safety procedures. This was followed by poetry reading from BSK students Abdullah Al-Ghaeis and Amnah Al-Awadh. Each member of the police team was invited on stage to receive their plaques and certificates of appreciation and following the cutting of the cake guests enjoyed a lavish breakfast and the opportunity to mingle and reflect on the partnership between BSK and the Police force. Further exchanges are planned during the forthcoming student Assemblies when road safety and safe parking will be a feature of the PSHE education program.
