Muscat: Smiling and excited children welcomed the ‘I Love the Sultan Campaign’ at the Philippine School Muscat, as the team from the Muscat Media Group (MMG) headed to their fifth school to promote the initiative.
Addressing a gathering of hundreds of students and teachers at the school, Richard Pakenham, the chief sales and marketing officer at MMG, said,
“We are here to tell you all about this exciting nationwide campaign, which we have initiated. With this, we aim to register citizens and residents of Oman for their name to be included on a portrait of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, which will be circulated on our newspapers, website and social media platforms on National Day.”
“Later, a mural will be created and displayed at a prominent public place in the country for generations to see. Registering for this campaign enables you to not only include your names in the portrait, but also gives you a chance to win the exciting prizes we have in store.”
He later announced the school initiative and encouraged the students to get as many registrations as possible, “A class from within one of the schools, one which gathers the maximum number of names through the registrations, will be rewarded with a wonderful party for up to 150 people at one of the top restaurants in Muscat, it will be a night to remember.”
Norlyn Y. Cura, acting principal of the Philippine School Muscat said the students are very excited about the campaign. “The students, teachers and parents are very much excited to learn about the ‘I Love the Sultan’ campaign; we were expecting the Muscat Media Group to come and tell everyone about it. Everyone wants to be part of this campaign, and it’s a great event and gives you a chance to show your love and respect to the Sultan.”
