ZAKHO STUDENTS CELEBRATE FLAG DAY
On December 12, 2018, students in Zakho International School, a SABIS® PPP school in Kurdistan, held a school-wide celebration of Flag Day.
During their lunch break, students were asked to gather in the cafeteria where they listened to a speech by the school director on the importance of the Kurdish flag, the importance of honor and respect to the flag, and the meaning of the different colors it has. Afterwards, the flag was raised and students and teachers joyfully danced to Kurdish music.
The purpose of this activity was to enlighten students on the history of their flag and their culture. It was also a celebration of the Kurdish identity. “I liked to learn more about the flag and colors on it,” said a student. Welcome to visit the gallery of the event, please click here
