Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Athoob Al-Shuaibi

Kuwait Univer­sity’s Fac­ulty of Science cel­e­brated its golden ju­bilee at the Sheikh Sabah Al-Salem The­atre in Khaldiya yes­ter­day. The cel­e­bra­tion was held un­der the pa­tron­age of KU Pres­i­dent Prof Hus­sain Ahmed Al-Ansari and the cur­rent Dean of the Fac­ulty of Science Prof Ab­dul­hadi Bu-Olayan.

The cer­e­mony be­gan with a doc­u­men­tary de­pict­ing the jour­ney of the fac­ulty since its in­cep­tion, and how it was re­stored af­ter the lib­er­a­tion of Kuwait, fol­lowed by its vi­sion of the fu­ture and the as­pi­ra­tion to work at the new cam­pus of Kuwait Univer­sity in Shadadiya. This was fol­lowed by a speech about early pioneers pre­sented by Dr Mustafa Marafi, who made the au­di­ence laugh with a poem through which ex­pressed the spe­cial con­nec­tion he has with the Fac­ulty of Science. “The pioneers of science in the Arab world are in fact the rea­son why we sus­tain a pas­sion for science - we learned it from them. I see this pas­sion through the love and re­spect the students give us,” he added. Boy scouts of Qais bin Abi Alas School then per­formed, and the au­di­ence cheered them by wav­ing flags. Later, mem­ber of the higher com­mit­tee and me­dia com­mit­tee Dr Arafat Al-Shuaibi gave a vote of thanks. He gave spe­cial thanks to Kuwaiti vet­eran actor Ja­mal AlRad­han and the­ater and film pro­ducer Rashid Al-Mutawa for their out­stand­ing vol­un­tary work for the doc­u­men­tary. The cer­e­mony ended with ex­hi­bi­tions of pho­tog­ra­phy and stu­dent activities, fol­lowed by lunch.
