Sharjah Children celebrate UAE National Day

SHARJAH, With the goal of nurturing children’s artistic and musical talents, and to celebrate their love for the UAE, 188 children from Sharjah Children, a subsidiary of Rubu’ Qarn Foundation for Creating Future Leaders and Innovators, will be performing an operetta called “My Precious Nation” at the Sharjah Cultural Palace amphitheatre to celebrate the 47th UAE National Day on 26th November, 2018.

The operetta, which will be held in cooperation with the Media Department of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs in Sharjah, comprises eight segments that include acting and singing performances revolving around Uncle Said’s palm tree, which represents the traditions and values of the UAE. Through their performance, children will portray Uncle Said as he teaches and instils the values and traditions of the UAE, in a fun and entertaining setting that promotes the love, loyalty and contribution to the development of the country.

Through the operetta, participants from the Sharjah Children Centres across the city of Sharjah, and in the Wousta and Sharqiyah districts, will show their appreciation and gratitude to the wise leadership of this country that ensures that children receive exceptional care and nurturing needed to put them on the path to becoming future leaders who will continue to build the country and assist in achieving its national agendas.

Salha Ghabish, General Director of the Media and Cultural Office of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, and composer of the operetta said, “This operetta reflects the human values that are passed down to us from generations and rooted in our religion and Arabic identity. It also represents the traditions that were instilled in us by the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, which promotes a culture of hard work and encourages us all to give back to the community and build the country.”

She noted that the operetta is in line with the vision of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, wife of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, and Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, to consolidate administrative and technical efforts between government entities to guarantee optimal and successful results.

Aysha Ali Al Kaabi, Acting Director of Sharjah Children, said, “Children taking part in the UAE National Day celebrations serves two important goals. On the one hand, it is an opportunity to express their love and appreciation for their country while on the other, it serves as a platform for us to identify and cultivate and nurture their talent through these activities. These goals fall in line with the vision of Dr. Sheikh Sultan, and Sheikha Jawaher, to support and nurture the art, science, and cultural activities in Sharjah. Most importantly, it embraces children and positions them as the focal point of the city’s development.
