‘First school’ hosts expo to mark Na­tional Day

Oman Daily Observer - - FRONT PAGE - MUS­CAT, NOV 14

Al Saidiya School Mu­seum, Oman’s first of­fi­cial school, whose struc­ture is now a mu­seum, marked the 47th Na­tional Day with an ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled ‘Na­tion’s Joy’.

The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tured 47 pieces of art by stu­dents from Mus­cat. “The stu­dents have por­trayed their pride,” said the Di­rec­tor of Al Saidiya School Mu­seum, Ru­daina Amur al Ha­jri.

The event con­nected the new gen­er­a­tion with the school whose pupils later be­came some of the prom­i­nent per­son­al­i­ties con­tribut­ing to Oman’s Re­nais­sance.

The court­yard of the school, dec­o­rated in na­tional colours, was once again bustling with teach­ers and stu­dents who came to­gether for the ex­hi­bi­tion.

Among the at­ten­dees was Khalid al Qasmi, a for­mer teacher at the Al Saidiya School, who rec­ol­lected the cel­e­bra­tion of first an­niver­sary of Na­tional Day cel­e­bra­tions, which was held at the school in 1971.
