New Indian School Jabriya

On Thursday my mom and I attended the Grand Reunion of New Indian School Alumni at the Crowne Plaza in Farwaniya. It was great to see many old faces and once again interact with my teachers. I was amazed to see guys from the 1976 batch, I didn't even know our school was that old ! The school operated from 1976 to 1990 and didn't resume after Liberation. :(


Unveiling the school flag

The whole event was masterminded by DJ Mario and a dedicated team of ex-NIS students. Overall the event was managed superbly and everyone had a great time. There was a projector showing pictures from the good old days and we even sang the School Anthem together after almost two decades ! I hope to see more from this group in the years to come.

Hi boys, thers no problem if the pics do go on the net as it was a clean party. some pics are come on the kuwait times n arab times already. Plus we had the ministry permission.
It was not a commercial party.
