A Dubai-based Hartland International School teacher didn’t expect birthday celebrations this year in light of social distancing, until his students surprised him with a special drive-by surprise.
Spending a birthday without family or friends around could be a disappointment regardless of how old you are. That wasn’t in the case of Daniel Slack, however. The teacher received a call by a parents association rep from his school, calling him to come outside his building to collect a birthday card.
Much to his surprise, he was welcomed by a fleet of cars with his students’ parents driving and stopping over to hand him gifts made entirely by his pupils. Judging by video footage, an excited Slack greeted them in all smiles and excitement. Check it out:
Slack told The National it “was quite a celebration” with “about 14 to 15 of my pupils in the cars” lining up to wish him.
