Ramallah Friends School is grateful and thanks the local community for sponsoring and partnering with us in celebrating our 150th anniversary of offering quality Quaker education to Palestinian youth in the West Bank towns of Ramallah and El Bireh.
Grateful thanks to members of the local community, including staff, parents, students, F/friends, and alumni who have all come together in one way or another during 2019 to join in celebrating several 150th events.
The events included Field Day, which brought together the whole school community together in one location for the first time in decades to celebrate students and teachers achievements for the academic year of 2018-2019. Burial of the Time Capsule, which is not to be dug up again until the School celebrates its 175th anniversary in the year 2044. And inauguration of the School's first museum and new classroom floor. Ending with the 150th Gala Dinner, aimed at supporting the student financial aid fund, RFS looks forward to celebrating another 150 years of Realizing Dreams, Fulfilling Dreams, and Sharing Hope.
The 150th Forestation Campaign will continue for the coming few years as RFS aims to plant around 300 trees and shrubs on both campuses in an effort to make our campuses greener and friendlier to the environment. If you would like to participate in our 150th Forestation Campaign please email our firstname.lastname@example.org and you can have a tree named after you on our RFS campuses.*
