In 2018, the Islamic Arabic Weekend School participated in the International Arab Reading Challenge for the first-time. The competition was brought to Canada for the first time in order to unite native and non-native Arabic speakers with literacy. Ahmad Dakouri won second place in all of Canada and represented Canada at the International Competition in Dubai.
Thank you to our sponsors - CBC Saskatchewan, University of Regina, and Multilingual Association of Regina - for hosting a very successful event. Visit Heritage Language Day to see who entertained us throughout the afternoon.
