On this occasion, Mr. Ahmed Khamis B Al-Yousef (Scout Activities Consultant), Ms. Muna Jumah Al-Mansouri (1st Scout Activities Expert), and Ms. Paramjeet Bhullar (Scouts & Guides Coordinator for Expatriate Schools) paid a visit to Ideal Indian School. The program commenced with a dignified ‘Guard of Honour’ extended to the Scouts & Guides dignitaries and the school’s Principal, Mr. Shaik Shamim Saheb.
The ceremony gained momentum as Head Scout Bhavith Babu ceremoniously raised the Qatar National Flag, accompanied by the inspiring strains of the ‘Qatar National Anthem.’ The formal proceedings began with a prayer by Scout Mishal Mustafa. Guide Akshaya Jayaprakash extended a warm welcome to the guests, the Principal, and all the attending Scouts & Guides.
