A Great Success! The Festival at Safa British

Last Friday saw the Which Media Festival of Schools kick off in fantastic style at Safa British School. The sell out event was attended by Safa families, families looking for schools and by members of the local community simply looking for an awesome day out. This Saturday, 13th November, the Festival of Schools will move to GEMS FirstPoint School – The Villa. Get your FREE tickets via the link in this feature!

The Festival of Schools at Safa British School was a resounding success! As an event designed to reconnect schools with the wider community, the very first Festival of Schools achieved just that (and more!). Every last ticket was sold, and feedback from the many families who came along was uniformly glowing.

For existing Safa families, the event was a chance to bring the community together again. For prospective families, it was a chance to meet the team, see the school and book follow up school tours to further explore enrolling their child in this 'old' school on a brand new campus. Huge thanks and ‘hats off’ to Zara Harrington (and the brilliant team!) at Safa British School for all the hard work, careful planning and effort. From the live DJ set, to the clever activities and ‘Trashion Show’ – we loved it all!
