(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) To raise funds for upcoming events, the French School Muscat in Bausher on Saturday organised a day-long fair for students and parents at its premises. It saw over 500 participate in the activities. The funds raised from the activities will be used to sponsor students' excursions in and outside Oman and other events.
A representative from the parents' body said, ''Every year we have this event with the sole aim of raising funds for our children and their various activities that include school sports, excursions, books for libraries and musical evenings. Response has always been great, and this year was no exception.''
She said the event is also an opportunity for the French community in Oman to interact. ''Such events give a chance for parents to meet one another. We not only have French students, but also Arab and those of other nationalities.''
The event had stalls selling books, eatables and games, all at nominal rates. The school will have a new building in Seeb soon to accommodate more students.
