Qatar Canadian School to hold annual Spring Fair today
Qatar Canadian School (QCS) will hold its annual Spring Fair today. The fun-filled event, which will kick off at 2.30pm on the school’s campus, has been organised by the school’s Parent Advisory Council.
Canadian games and competitions will raise the adventure bar involving students and their families. The activities for children include bouncy castles and a fish pond.
Visitors will have the chance to taste the famous Canadian coffee, Tim Hortons, which is not available in Doha yet.
While the annual spring fair is meant to be a fun-filled event, it also comes with a noble cause. QCS, in collaboration with some charitable organisations, will collect items for donation to the less-privileged children and families.
Lovers of international cuisine can enjoy different food items, which will be available at the event.
