El-Bireh - On Friday April 19th, 2019 Ramallah Friends School launched its 150th Anniversary celebrations with Field Day. Historically, the Friends Boys School used to celebrate this day in Spring by organizing a dun-day of sports competitions and gymnastic performances for the school community. This was an RFS tradition before the Nakbe (Catastrophe) of 1948.
Bringing back Field Day in 2019 as a renewed RFS tradition and a celebration of the School's 150th year in offering quality education to Palestinian youth was a big success. In Field Day, the RFS community of students, parents, staff and teachers, and alumni were able to unite together for the first time in one event on the Upper Campus in El Bireh.
The event was attended by more than 2500-3000 members of the community and included Lower and Upper school student performances, exhibits and family activities.
