SISD celebrated the UAE’s 47th National Day on November 28th 2018. The holiday marks the unification of the seven Emirates and the founding of the country in 1971 under H.H Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the first president. A Special Assembly was organized by SISD and the occasion was celebrated with enthusiasm and excitement. Teachers and students came dressed in the colours of the UAE Flag. An entertaining programme was put up by the Arabic Department in which the students viewed an educational presentation about the formation of the union of the seven sheikdoms. Students shared Arabic sweets and other traditional dishes and went home with face paintings and henna on their hands.
