Launched in 2014 and the first of its kind in the state of Qatar, Doha College’s Medical Conference brings together secondary school students who share a passion for medicine. The conference’s sole objective is to provide a unique platform for young medics who are taking their first steps towards a career in medicine. The event allows budding medical students to showcase their knowledge and in-depth research capabilities by presenting on the latest ground-breaking developments.

Keeping with Qatar’s 2030 National Vision, which clearly affirms a commitment to healthcare, Doha College is proud to be at the forefront of supporting students in Qatar with a similar vision. Together with COBIS – Council of British International Schools; and local partners Hamad Medical Corporation and Elite Medical Center, we support the National Vision by inspiring and equipping students, enhancing their skills and aiding them in the university application process for a career in the medical field.

Interested schools put forward teams from years 11, 12 and 13 to research recent developments in medicine and deliver a short presentation about it. Teachers from participating schools stand as judges for the morning session presentations, and the final judging panel will comprise doctors and medical experts who then assess and challenge the finalists in the afternoon session.

 

Doha College Medical Conference 2020

 

This year, the seventh edition of the medical conference, over 65 teams of students from 18 schools signed-up, including two schools from outside Qatar. This number is the highest in the history of the conference. Additionally, two new topics were introduced – Neuroscience and Psychiatry; and Oral Health.

Each year, Doha College principal Dr Steffen Sommer expresses a keen interest in the medical conference. “Every year, I very much look forward to opening our much-vaunted Medical Conference, which we host in partnership with COBIS. Having seen the event grow steadily since the first conference seven years ago, in the number of participating schools and teams; and in international reach, we are immensely proud to welcome this year to Doha College, a total of 18 schools from three different countries.”

Our instrumental music programme - Musiqaa requires specialist input, which is provided by a team of talented and dedicated teachers committed to providing expert tuition for students wishing to develop their musical interests and talents beyond the school curriculum. These teachers play a vital role in supporting the work of the Music Department. They strengthen and augment the quality and range of music provision within the school. Their role complements and enhances that of the classroom music teacher, intensifying and broadening musical experiences for instrumentalists.

Learning in and through instrumental music opens the door for young people to nurture:

  • a love and understanding of music;
  • a wide range of individual skills (reading, technical, interpretive, communicative, physical and critical);
  • sensitive and imaginative response;
  • self-confidence, self-respect, self-reliance and self-expression;
  • co-operation, commitment, team-work, interdependence and loyalty;
  • a sense of discipline, initiative, purpose and achievement;
  • the ability to concentrate upon and coordinate several tasks at once;
  • an empathy towards the working of the creative process in other arts.

We offer lessons in:

Violin ▪ Viola ▪ Cello ▪ Flute ▪ Clarinet ▪ Saxophone ▪ Trumpet ▪ French Horn ▪ Trombone ▪ Piano ▪ Voice ▪ Guitar ▪ Keyboards

Lessons take place during and after school hours in the secondary music department and in most cases last for 30 minutes. Where students are performing at advanced levels longer sessions may be offered.

Students obviously require access to an instrument for practice; those who do not possess their own may wish to consider hiring from the Music Department. All of our instruments are in excellent working condition. With the exception of pianos, guitars and keyboards, all of the above instruments are available for hire.

If your son/daughter is interested in learning to play an instrument please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You will then receive detailed information regarding lesson fees, payment methods and hire schemes.

Competition Rules

Each choir must not exceed 90 members, who must be aged 5-8, 8-11, 11-14 in each respective category. Teachers may not form part of the school choir.

The participation fee is 2,000 QAR for schools entering one choir and 3,000 QAR for schools entering two or more choirs. As a shared event for all schools in Qatar, we are self-funding. We present this event for all, to promote choral singing in Qatar and the development of music education across the country. All funds raised are directly channelled into the event, paying for venue hire, flights, fees and costs for our lead adjudicator, audio & visual for the entire event, piano hire and tuning, transporting choir risers, marketing etc. Given our move to the Qatar National Convention Centre, as the competition has grown exponentially in size, we now have increased costs. We hope that schools will support us in this endeavour.

Choirs will perform one free choice piece and one set piece as detailed below, either accompanied or unaccompanied, not exceeding 8 minutes in total. Music must be appropriate for the audience and be culturally sensitive.

  • Set song for ages 5-8:                Hear The Wind, Emily Crocker
  • Set song for ages 8-11:               Lady Dressed in White, Lin Marsh
  • Set song for ages 11-14:              It Don’t Mean a Thing if it Ain’t Got that Swing, Ellington/Mills

A clean copy of the music must be provided to the judges on the day.

Children in the choirs must remain under the supervision of their school staff during the competition heats and final. Children must be supervised by at least one adult for every ten children. Failure to do so may result in disqualification from the competition.

Parental consent must be given for each child to take part in the competition and the permission for each child to appear in photographs and recordings must be sought by your school. The named contact will be responsible for obtaining all permissions necessary from the choir members participating before entering the competition. Proof of relevant consents may be requested.

Each school involved is required to cover their own expenses and organise their own travel arrangements.

Tickets for heats and the final will be available for parents through an online ticketing website.

Choirs should provide their own accompanist. A piano will be provided. No other accompanying instruments are permitted. No backing tracks are allowed.

Doha College reserves the right to disqualify any choir which does not adhere to the rules of the competition.

Judging

In each heat and the final, there will be a carefully selected independent panel of judges. All judges will listen carefully to the quality and style of the singing and will select schools throughout the competition using the following scoring criteria:

Technical ability e.g. tuning, diction, voice quality, balance, dynamics, overall sound.

Musical Expression e.g. musicality, communication, phrasing, passion, energy, commitment and interpretation of the text.

QSCoY page banner

Motto: Uniting children through singing 

Vision: To enhance children's well-being through music, while bringing joy to the community

Mission: To enable children to experience and enjoy each other's musical heritage, to give them a platform that encourages a touch of competitive spirit, with the desire to perform and excel, to contribute to Qatar's vision for 2030 by enriching the education in performing arts.

 Logos strip

Originally called "Qatar Primary School Choir of the Year", the competition was brought to life in 2017 by a team of music teachers, parent volunteers and choir enthusiasts from Doha College, to add new breadth to the music education in the country.

Competition Ambassador Dana Al Fardan is a Qatari composer of international prominence, an alumna of Doha College and a champion of music education. She composed the competition anthem "Wings of the Falcon," a rousing song that was the set piece of the inaugural QSCoY edition and has since been recorded with the Qatar Junior Choir and with members of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra.

QSCoY is fortunate to have had world-renowned choral expert Greg Beardsell as its head adjudicator for each edition since inauguration. Every year, Greg led electrifying workshops for children and teachers and succeeded in firing up the love of singing in hundreds of children.

Following the rise of QSCoY, the country has seen choirs emerging or doubling in size, grander performances in local events, widened participation in the competition itself, year on year. Owing to the continued success of the "Qatar School Choir of the Year" model, we are excited to have expanded the competition for the 2020 edition!

Sincerely,

Stephanie Gomaa
Director of QSCoY

 

Now, for the QSCoY 2020 winners!

DOHA COLLEGE RACE BREAKS ITS 10K AND 5K RECORDS

The ninth edition of the Doha College 10K and 5K Race was the fastest in its history, with both events for males clocking new race records. In an event full of firsts, the race introduced a children’s race over 1 kilometre, in which nearly 150 children aged 6 to 11 competed for the trophy.


Ran at night for the first time, the race drew hundreds of athletes, from novice runners to decorated Olympians, including top international champion Liz McColgan. Another novelty for this edition was the track – the event took place for the first time at the spectacular Losail International Circuit, which offered top class facilities to both participants and supporters.

20200116 194031 CIO

The fastest male over the 10k distance was newcomer Oussama Zeroual, who finished in 30’22”, while the 5K event had not one but two athletes become the fastest over this distance: AbdulAziz Hussein Saleh AlAbdi and Kojo Kyereme, both of whom ran it in 15 minutes on the dot. AbdulAziz competed in the open category while Kojo ran in the veteran category. Ousamma, who trains with Al-Shamal Sports Club, shared his impressions of the race: “Doha College Race was quite incredible, very well organised. I was struggling in the second lap to catch up with Sammy and Mohcine (placed second and third respectively – Ed.) and I finally did it about 800m before the finish line and I won the race.”

20200116 200530 CIO

In the women’s races, Liz McColgan was the fastest over 10k with 39’53”, bettering her 2016 win by a whole three and a half minutes, while Sole Dominguez ran this year’s fastest 5k in just under 21 minutes – 20’56” to be exact.

The children’s race saw Nidhal Yehiya, aged 11, win the boys’ race with a 3’37” time; Sinead Firth, also aged 11, won the girls’ race running the distance in 4 minutes and 4 seconds.

The race was organised again by Evolution Sports. Qatar’s top sports academy who works in close partnership with Doha College. To see images from the January 2020 race, click/tap here

 

About the Doha College Race

The race has been in operation since 2011, with the first edition held at The Pearl, attracting over 300 participants in a 10km competition. The race has grown significantly over the years and moved to Aspire Zone which boasts the iconic Torch Hotel, Aspire Park and other world class sporting facilities. The anticipated yearly event now offers both a 5km and 10km race, plus a children's 1km race, attracting over 1000 runners from the Qatar community and beyond. To celebrate Doha College school 40th anniversary, this year's race took place at the world-class Losail Circuits Sports Club on the MotoGP track.
