The Sunshine Kindergarten (TSK) participated in the spectacular opening of the 10th Britain in Kuwait under the gracious patronage of H.H. Sheikh Nasser Mohamed Al Sabah. Madam Vera Al-Muttawa MBE, Miss Heather (Principal), Miss Lis (Assistant Principal) were in attendance with some of their wonderful students in the infamous bright yellow uniform. The TSK booth recreated a classroom scene and included a short film of the day in the life of its students. It was an opportunity to showcase some of the wonderful work that takes place at the nursery. The creative art work on display promoted the wonderful relationship between Kuwait and Britain and was completed by the young TSK children.
TSK Principal Heather Holsgrove was immensely proud of the hard work and effort that the children and their teachers had put into making the exhibition such a success. At the event, she told her guests that the children are encouraged to be independent and are developing their strong English language through a ‘language rich’ learning environment. She added, “It is an honour to participate in an event that supports the longstanding relationship between Kuwait and Britain. Kuwait has been my home for over 10 years and I am proud of the endless opportunities Kuwait has given me, my family, colleagues and students. At TSK, we celebrate living in Kuwait as often as we can through school events as it is so important that we are proud of our roots as well as where we live. Kuwait will always have a special place in our hearts. ”
The Chairman of the exhibition Ahmad Ismail Behbehani and British Ambassador to Kuwait, H.E. Michael Davenport presented a certificate of appreciation to TSK in recognition of its participation.
As part of celebrating the longstanding relationship, TSK welcomes The Duke of Cambridge Prince William, The grandson of the UK’s Queen Elizabeth II to Kuwait. TSK hopes that Prince William enjoys his stay and, he may have time to pop in to visit The Sunshine Kindergarten.
TSK follows The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS), a dynamic curriculum for young children which allows them to develop their strengths and skills as they learn through play based activities, active learning and creative arts sessions. It is the dedication of the teaching team and the support and enthusiasm of the parents and their children that ensures that The Sunshine Kindergarten maintain their position as Kuwait’s Premier Early Years Centre.
