Don’t miss this free family spring fair in Dubai

It’s almost time to welcome spring, and with it come all of those family fairs where there’s tons to do. GEMS Jumeirah Primary School (JPS) is holding a mega event on Friday March 1 between 2pm and 6pm, and we’re super excited about this one.

The tenth edition of the fun-filled family fair, which is open to public and the school community, will raise funds to support children’s education in developing countries, so it’s all for a good cause.

The event, which usually draws crowds of hundreds of families, will feature traditional fair games, a market, delicious food, entertainment and prizes at the Terrific Tombola.

You can also take part in the silent auction, which will include everything from Kuala Lumpur holiday packages to specialised medical services.

Driven by the Parent Teacher Association, the JPS Spring Fair is the school’s largest and most highly anticipated event of the year.

Through its partnership with Dubai Cares, the UAE-based global philanthropic organisation, JPS is set to donate all raised funds to the charity’s Adopt a School initiative. In previous years, funds were used to build schools in Nepal and Malawi, and support Syrian refugee children in Jordan through Dubai Cares’ Early Childhood Development (ECD) program.

“Children and learning are at the heart of our school and we strive to extend the power of education to those less privileged. Other than being a fundraiser, this event is also an opportunity to celebrate our children and our proactive community,” said Rachel Higgins, principal/CEO of GEMS JPS.
