Dubai, UAE - November 26, 2019:  To celebrate the 48th UAE National Day, students, faculty members and parents from GEMS Education, gathered to form the ‘World’s Largest Mosaic Mural Made of Plastic Bottle Caps’ forming the phrase ‘Zayed’s Ambitions Embrace Space’ and set another Guinness World Record.

The Guinness World Record was achieved by collating 13,434 bottle caps, breaking the current record set in Japan where 5,009 caps were used. The mosaic theme demonstrates GEMS Education’s commitment to supporting and celebrating the achievements of the UAE and the success of the National Agenda.

The event reinforced the commitment of GEMS Education to strengthening national pride in the students. In addition, teachers used this opportunity to explain to students about the importance of finding creative ways to recycle and reuse plastic and disposable items to protect our environment.
