Safa Diversity

Safa British School takes great pride in being a truly global community with families from almost fifty different countries and cultures.

As well as celebrating the diversity of our Safa family through sharing our cultural festivals, we also celebrate our unity as a community living and learning in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The year begins with International day where every pupil is given the oppertunity to celebrate his or her home country’s values and culture. Later in the year we celebrate multiculturalism with our hugely successful international spring fair. Parents are invited to participate with stall showcasing their home countries dishes and traditions.

Our UAE National Day celebrations enhance the school’s local links with a week of events where our children come to school wearing UAE colours or National dress and participate in a wide array of local activities. The week celebrates the UAE foods, Arabic music, dance and culture (including visiting camels and falcons).

Throughout the Year we celebrate cultural events from across the world. This includes Diwali, Eid, Chinese New Year, Islamic New Year, Rememberance day, to name but a few. Celebrations are supported with enthusiasm by our FOS group, and the larger school body.
