The third edition of ‘Shoot’ awareness programme was launched at MES Indian School. The programme, organised by the Public Relations Department and by Qatar Police Sports Federation of the Ministry of Interior, is held under the theme ‘Through Awareness We Achieve the Goal’.
The opening event was attended by Lt Colonel Hamad Muhammad Al Muhannadi, Head of Community Police Affairs at Community Policing Department, Capt Badi Jouhar Al Abdullah, Head of Admin Affairs at QPSF, Sheikha Al Anoud Al-Thani, Head of Media Studies at Public Relations Department and Coordinator of the Program, and Professor Hamida Qader, MES Indian School principal.
The programme started with a football match between two teams of students. The players played football amidst traffic signs urging adherence to traffic laws and calling for safety signs to be kept while driving. The trainers of the Qatar Police Sports Federation guided the students during the game, in an atmosphere of great enthusiasm.
Lt Col Al Muhannadi expressed his gratitude to the school for hosting of the event, stressing that the programme would help strengthen traffic awareness among the new generation. He called on the students to utilise the programme for learning traffic rules and regulations through sports events. A memento was also presented to the principal of the school in appreciation of her efforts.
Professor Hamida Qader said that this awareness initiative of the MOI would result in constructive and effective results, that will hopefully educate school students in early stage, involving students between the ages of 9 and 12 years. The young students can learn the basic traffic principles and thus achieve the goal.
