BSME success for Doha College
It is an established fact that for every human being, sports are second to oxygen in maintaining a good health leading to a happy life. The role of sports has a significant place among other extra-curricular activities.
Andrew Huberman, a renowned neuroscientist, and professor at Stanford University states 'engaging in physical activity triggers the release of endorphins, which are responsible for reducing stress and promoting a sense of well-being.'
In this regard, Doha College Physical Education Department acts as a nucleus, impacting on our children and taking responsibility in highlighting the importance of sports and physical activity in our diverse and international community.
We play a vital role in leading our students in encouraging mass participation, encompassing physical literacy through our games programme, KS3 lessons, GCSE and A Level theoretical courses. On top of that, we identify our own sporting talent through our Talent ID programme. The Physical Education Department highlights sporting talent but also ensures that the individual exemplifies the Doha College values of Diligence, Respect, Perseverance, and Integrity.
