As we fast approach 1 May Labour Day, our students who are studying human rights in General Studies Department, under the supervision of Dr Rania, organised a celebration to recognise our cleaners, drivers and security personnel. Those colleagues working on the ground, make sure that our University is safe, secured, and clean. Their contributions are vital in providing a good image of our University. The good gesture and initiative by our students demonstrate their kindness and willingness to apply what they have learned in the classrooms.
The celebration was attended by the President, Dean of Arts and Science, Dr Faiza, Dr Abdel Jabbar, Dr Murad (who gave an inspirational speech), Dr Amjad, Dr Rania (who led this initiative and the students work), Ms Ruqaya, Mr Hatem, Mr Maan, Mr Bahaa, Mr Ibrahim and 30 colleagues who are cleaners, drivers and security personnel, and over 100 students. This is one of the most rewarding experiences since I joined the University and the work done by Dr Rania and the students is highly commended. In a recent report about happiness, results have clearly shown that expatriates enjoy happy experiences while living in Bahrain. This is a testimony to the generosity, kindness and hospitality of Bahraini who make all of us feel very welcome. The event took place in the cafeteria on Monday, 17 April.
