Suleimaniah Students Celebrate City’s Anniversary
On November 15, 2016, students in grades 2 and 4 at Suleimaniah International School, a SABIS® PPP school in Kurdistan, had an after-school party to celebrate the anniversary of Suleimaniah City.
All the students changed into their traditional Kurdish clothing before the party and then met in the school courtyard. At the courtyard the students stood in order to form the world “I LOVE SULI.” Afterwards, the students headed to the school cafeteria where they watched a documentary on the city and participated in Kurdish folklore dancing.
The purpose of this activity was to give students the opportunity to connect with their culture and raise awareness about their history. “It was a lovely day where I got to show off my new Kurdish clothes,” said a student. To visit the gallery of the event, please click here
