Doha College has announced the exciting career progression of Grant Gillies, their Senior Vice Principal – Head of Primary. Grant has been appointed as Headmaster at the British School of Bucharest (BSB) from August 2021, a high-profile co-educational COBIS school for students aged 2 to 18.
Always deeply appreciative of its host country, Doha College delights in the opportunity to celebrate the Qatari heritage. This year, the proceedings were a little different, with Covid restrictions dialling down the number and the breadth of activities. There were no falcons, camels or karak on the campus, but the spirit of the day was just as high.
Doha College was delighted to welcome the Ministry of Education for their first official visit to the new building. They were given a tour of the campus, which included classrooms, specialist areas such as Design and Technology, the Sciences and also some of Humanities, Primary classes, the sports halls and other facilities like the libraries.
2020 brought many tough challenges for the Doha College community, but none of it more so than the loss of Year 11 student Lenny Heidel. Lenny was loved by all those who knew him, with his bright and vibrant personality, along with his lovely and polite manner.
