The students from the India International School of the PACE Education Group participated in the event by wearing the colours of the UAE National flag.
The school management said the attempt was held to mark the Children's Day in India. It is observed on November 14, the birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Indian prime minister who was very fond of children.
"It is a great achievement for our students. It is probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience for them," Dr. Manju Reji, principal of the school, told Gulf News.
