FCC organised these competitions with the aim to provide the participants with information on QC and FCC activities and to strengthen their links with both, in addition to developing the skills of the children and establishing good relationship with communities.
The competitions also aimed at making the participants familiar with the Qatari culture and increasing the number of volunteers seeking to get involved in FCC's activities.
In his statement, Habeebu Rahima Kunnath, director of FCC said he was pleased with the great success achieved by the Asian School Fiesta 2018."The competitions provided opportunities for participants to showcase their creative skills in various areas", Kunnath added.
He pointed out that the centre has opened horizons for the Asian communities with the support from the people of Qatar and has provided an exemplary model of competitions.
The parents of participants applauded the efforts of QC's centre to develop the skills of their children, wishing such events would frequently be held on a larger scale due to students' interest in them.
Myeisha Mendes, a student of Grade 2 at Birla Public School, Doha, expressed her pleasure over participating in the competition, saying"it helped me overcome the fear of standing on the podium in front of the public."
FCC is one of QC's community development centres, which was established by the charity in 2004 to strengthen the cultural interaction among members of the various Asian communities living in Qatar.
