GUST holds Gergean event for Staff and Faculty

Date: 
15 June 2017

GUST held a Gergean event on its campus for staff, faculty, and their children.  The event, organised by the HR Department, took place in order to keep the tradition alive, and to introduce aspects of Kuwaiti culture foreign members of the GUST community  may not be familiar with.

Gergean is a gulf-wide tradition which takes place halfway through Ramadan, whereby children dress in traditional clothes and go from house to house, singing traditional songs and get candy in return.

As part of the festivities, attendees were treated to live music, henna tattoos, delicious treats, a pop-up photo studio, and fun games.  Also set up in place for kids were bouncy castles, buggies, carraige rides, face painting, and bracelet making.
