that Poetry can play an important part in developing a child’s language skills.
It encourages creative expression and offers a deeper understanding of sound,
rhythm and the use of emotion in language. This is why we launched the
competition. The poems we have received, and especially the winning poems, will
be shared as we begin celebrating the ‘Year of the 50th’ in our
schools,” concluded Mr Mansukhani.

websites for The Aquila School and Nibras International School in Dubai, as
well as Aspen Heights British School and Reach British School in Abu Dhabi.
