Bahrain St Christopher’s School Stride for Truce

22 Jun

Bahrain Stride for Truce 2016As part of the House Sports Week, our Senior School students supported the Stride for Truce 2016 initiative on Thursday 16 June. The aim of this event was to mobilise young people all over the world for the promotion of the Olympic ideals of building a better and more peaceful world.

The Youth Olympics Oath was read over the Tannoy by Dana Tartir and students were encouraged to show good sportsmanship while competing. The Peace Day Committee, composed of Sixth Form students, organised races for Years 7, 8 and 9 including 100m sprint, 100m race walking and 100m rope skipping. 

 The Youth Olympics Oath:  In the name of all the coaches and other members of the athletes’ entourage, I promise that we shall commit ourselves to ensuring that the spirit of sportsmanship and fair play is fully adhered to and upheld in accordance with the fundamental principles of Olympism.

By Rola Al Hammoud Mathematics Teacher / Head of Year 13

As it is extremely hot in Bahrain at this time of year the event was held indoors. Races were also adapted so they were doable for the students (some were also fasting for Ramadan). A very well done to all those who participated.

Bahrain Flag Meaning:
The triangles on the white serrated stripe represent the five pillars of Islam. The colour red is supposed to represent the Kharijite sect of Islam. Bahrain’s older flags used to be entirely red, but a white stripe was added in the 19th Century to indicate truces Bahrain had made with neighboring countries. The serrated triangles were added to the white strips to distinguish the Bahranian flag from the flags of its neighboring countries.

From St. Christopher’s School in Bahrain we have received this lovely design which has been done by Umaiza Ahmad in Year 6.

Well done to Umaiza who says: We all wish for peace because it lightens the way to happiness!

Thank you to Rola AlHammoud Teacher of Mathematics / Head of Year 13, our senior school link and to Primary School link, Deina Dales for promoting and coordinating the project in the school. Special thanks to all staff and students who have given their valuable time to the International Peace Quilt.

St-Chris-S_thumb The values and concepts that guide our school are not easy to summarise briefly, but the constituent words of what we call the St Christopher’s ‘S’- Caring, Learning, Communicating – say a lot about what we are, especially when considered together with our Five Pillars of Learning, that we have adapted and expanded from ideas to be found in the four aspects of learning described in a report to UNESCO by Jacques Delors. Our Mission Statement helps to complete the picture!
