A Doha-based girls’ primary school is in the running for a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the world’s longest thank-you letter to a ruler (apparently, it’s a new category).
All Qatar residents are invited to sign the letter, which is addressed to Emir Sheikh Hamid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani.
The Gulf Times reports:
The citizens and residents of Qatar are invited to sign on a giant banner (60m x 2.5m) as a gesture of appreciation for HH the Emir’s role in supporting education and teachers, establishing noble values in the society and enhancing national sentiments among the citizens, organisers said.
Qatar residents are welcome to sign the banner as per a schedule set by the school management. The mornings are reserved for teachers and students while the public of all ages can sign in the evening. The messages could be in both Arabic and English…
Deliberations with the relevant officials of the records book have already started to explain the goals of the initiative.
So who’s heading to Maimona Primary School for Girls in Mansoura to express their gratitude? If so, give us directions on how to get there! This is a sight we have to see for ourselves.
