The English Language Institute (ELI) at King Abdulaziz University (KAU) held its end of year celebration on Wednesday evening April 24, 2019 at the King Faisal Convention Center.
This special event was held to show gratitude and appreciation for the ELI faculty and staff who have made such tremendous efforts to make this year one of our most successful ever.
At the start of the celebration, the ELI Dean, Dr Abdullah Al-Bargi, delivered a warm speech welcoming faculty members and staff, sincerely thanking everybody for the great teamwork and efforts they had all been part of in the year now drawing to its close.
People were obviously happy and relaxed and mixed and mingled as colleagues and friends. Certificates of appreciation were presented to individuals who had gone that extra mile in terms of service to ELI during the year, and just about everyone was photographed in groups or in pairs, with mutual congratulations warmly and repeatedly exchanged.
The evening concluded with a traditional succulent meal that was much enjoyed by all. The atmosphere and ambience were of a united group of professionals celebrating the coming conclusion of a great year of teaching, learning, development and fruitful effort.
‘A thoroughly fitting and very enjoyable celebration’ aptly sums up the evening.
