Smiles and goodwill radiated on the faces of third grade students at Al Jazeera Academy when they handed out umbrellas and vacuum flasks to security personnel of AJA. 

The security officers are very thankful for the children’s kindness. Ms Nadia Waja, Head of Primary, along with class teachers and other school officials, witnessed this simple act of kindness during the Year 3 weekly assembly. The school hopes to cultivate the value of respect through a range of activities embedded in the Tarbeya programme. Ms Muna Muse, Year Leader, gave a talk on the importance of showing gratitude, respect and sharing one’s blessings with others. Students were very attentive and interacted actively with their teachers during the talk.

"I am delighted that this idea stemmed from the children themselves. It is pleasing to see the values of respect and kindness shown in such a practical way”, Ms Nadia said. “The children noticed and were moved at the sight of security officers who stood in the 'Doha heat' mornings and afternoons doing their work of keeping children safe," explained Ms Nadia. The school is very proud of students taking initiatives like this and are committed to continue to create a values-based atmosphere in the school, in which all students can thrive.
