SAMA’s 11th Annual Jalsah


اسلام عليكم و رحمةالله و بركاته

Tuesday, 26th November 2013 is the 11th Annual Jalsah of SAMA.
And as always, I have always looked forward to it.

This year however, began on a bad note, where at the entrance, the school sells food and drinks, but you aren’t allowed to take it into the auditorium.

So I returned the little one’s crisp, and asked to have the R100.00 worth of food coupons refunded.

Getting into the UJ auditorium, there was adequate seating, in fact more than adequate.

The MC was Nicholas Bixa

The program was as follows:

Opening Qiraat
Welcome Speech by Mr F. Turkman
National Anthems by Grade 4
Welcome to SAMA by Grade 2 A
Lab Pe Aati by Grade 1 B
Act of a Thousand Hands by Grade 2B
Budget Speech by Grade 2 A
Grade 1 Tradition Pot Pourri
Arabic Poem by Grade 3
Whirling Dervishes by Grade 2
Turkish Nazm by Grade 4
Off To Great Places by Grade 3
Chinese Fan Dance by Grade 5
Uhibbuka Rabbi by Grade 3
The Changing Face Of War by Grade5
SAMA News by Grade 4
Vote of Thanks

It was an amazing display of diverse themes.

The Budget Speech was awesome. And was one of my favourite parts of the Jalsah.

I truly admire the staff of the school for all of the effort that they, as well as the students, puts in.
Each year has been more awesome than the last.

As for food, we were starving and thirsty after we left the Jalsah which ended around 10:15pm. We didn’t bother buying from the school, as I was already irritated and not in the mood to deal further with the ridiculousness of it all. And instead we drove to MacDonald’s on the way home and ate at around 11pm that night, finally..
