National Flag Day

We have had such an exciting UAE Flag Day.

We had flags to hold during the national anthem this morning, this was very exciting.

In assembly we learnt about the UAE flag. Did you know there was a competition to design the UAE flag?

Then before lunch the whole school went outside to the astro-turf and watch the flag being raised, sung the national anthem and listening to other formal proceedings with the whole academy.

It has been a fun day thinking about our flag and why it is so special to live here in the UAE.
