Planning the 2014 reunion

Hello Everyone,

Would you be interested in hosting the 2014 SEP 72 reunion?  If yes, please let me know and I will send a second email to the class by March 2014 with the cities of the candidates that are interested.  Then by April we should target to finalize the city.

The dates were discussed with the participants of the 2013 reunion and almost all agreed that our next reunion should be the last week of October, as this coincides with the school breaks.

All the best,


Congratulations to Ahmad and the members of the 2013 reunion!

SEP 72 alumni meeting 2013 update

It seems that there are various options for accommodation and many of you that already know the area have chosen on your own through different booking engines. Which makes sense, please be careful with the VISA issues, Ahmad told me that if you book your flight with Emirates they should take care of the VISA for you.

I was talking to Ahmad this morning and he recommends the following:
• To meet on Thursday evening (October 24th) at the Sofitel for a light dinner / drinks.
• Friday he will organize a meeting room and hold a presentation from Abu Dhabi University.
• Saturday and Sunday is for tourism activities. He can help those that don’t have plans already.

I will send another reminder about submissions closer to the deadline.

Contributions should be written in a straightforward and factual manner. In order to make the notes fit in the space available the editor reserves the right to make stylistic changes and to edit copy; these edits will of course still be mindful of retaining the individual voices and characters.

Please ensure your digital camera is set to the highest resolution in ‘settings’. If in doubt, send a selection of your highest quality images and cross reference the images with the copy you provide so we can easily identify which images belong to which copy.  Please note we cannot guarantee to include all images owing to limited space within the magazine.
