Swedish Embassy to celebrate the Swedish national day in Riyadh on April 11 and the Swedish school in Riyadh to celebrate 40 years on April 19
On April 11 the Embassy of Sweden in Riyadh will celebrate the National Day of Sweden with up to a thousand guests and dignitaries.
18 companies are sponsoring the event. Among other things guests will be able to sample new products from Arla Foods and have the chance to win a weekend trip to Dubai with Emirates, our partner in promoting Sweden as a tourist destination this spring.
In 1978 the Swedish school first opened its doors to children of Swedish parents working in Saudi Arabia. 40 years later the school is still up and running and receiving students with some connection to Sweden.
To celebrate this achievement and inform participants about plans for the future, for example the possibility of an international pre-school class, the Swedish school is organizing a get-together on April 19 at the Swedish school in the Kingdom City Compound.
