6) The encounter was postponed to May 3rd, due to the unfortunate death of the father of the principle of A-Sallam School. We held an excursion to the Shagor area and Shagor Stream with some 150 students from both schools. We learned the plants and rocks of the scenery and how to protect them from environmental pollution. Towards the end – parents served a light meal to the students.
