for their support at Doha unveiling event
KidZania Doha shared its appreciation for Sherborne Qatar last week by thanking the school’s 19 talented children who participated in the recent unveiling of KidZania’s longest aircraft in the region, a Boeing 737-500 aircraft.
During the event, the school children took part in a entertaining acting and dancing routine with the KidZania characters Urbano, Vita, Beebop, Chika and Bache, where they also introduced a sample of the range of professions that children will be able to experience through role-play when KidZania opens in the first quarter of 2018.
As a part of the visit to the school, KidZania Doha prepared giveaways and presented certificates to the 19 children. Special recognition was given to 10-year old Olivia Keefe, the young MC of the launch event, during the assembly of 400 students.
Ric Fearnett, Governor, KidZania Doha, said, “Our launch event was a great success and we truly appreciate Sherborne Qatar’s support in making this significant event such a success. We were extremely impressed with the commitment, ability and positive attitude of the children throughout the event, which was attended by many VIPs, external stakeholders and the media. Interacting with the talented youth of Qatar is truly inspiring for us at KidZania Doha as we prepare to inspire the country’s children with key learning tools to enable them to learn about the real working environment.”
KidZania is dedicated to marrying education and entertainment to strategically teach children values which could not be easily replicated in a traditional classroom. KidZania continues to collaborate with schools in the region to further educate and introduce various ways of learning.
