Qatar Academy Doha (QAD) recently hosted a workers’ appreciation day, part of the school’s Community and Service programme and an event for students to express gratitude to the many groups of workers supporting the school. QAD is part of the Pre-University Education of Qatar Foundation.
The event saw students meet and interact with workers through a series of fun games and sports competitions, including football and basketball. The students also organised lunch and distributed gift boxes to attendees.
QAD teachers Don Wilson, Raka Singhal, Bernice Ferdinand and Shagufta Rashid, helped and supervised the day.
The Community and Service programme at QAD began in 2011, aimed at educating students on appreciating workers. The special day allows the students to show their gratitude to workers in the school.
According to one of the supervising teachers, Bernice Ferdinand, the importance of workers should be recognised within the school and ensure that the community, especially the students and parents, help celebrate these men and women and the role they play in the community.
