Martyr’s Day and UAE National Day Celebrations

The nursery will be closed on Tuesday, December 1, 2015* to Thursday, December 3, 2015* (to be confirmed).

National Day (Arabic: اليوم الوطني‎; Yawm al watani) is celebrated on December 2 each year in the United Arab Emirates. It marks the UAE’s formal nationalization from the British Protectorate Treaties which ended on December 1, 1971 and the eventual, federal unification of the seven emirates in 1971 which combined to form the modern-day country, headed by Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the federation’s first president. Grand celebrations are held across the country to mark the event. In celebration of this auspicious event we invite all children and staff to come dress in colors of the UAE flag on Sunday, November 29, 2015.

*Please note these dates are subject to change according to the announcements and will be communicated to the parents once confirmed.
