Doha College, one of the oldest international schools in Qatar and the first to have been granted the FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education) green flag status six years ago, has reached another eco-milestone. Starting this month, Doha College students and staff are able to recycle paper, card, wood, metal, glass, plastics and batteries, thanks to their partnership with Elite Paper Recycling (EPR).
Doha College’s Year 7 student Kobe Lewis has won the first prize in an international coding competition organised by the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) in partnership with Discover Education. The competition aimed to provide students at British International schools with the opportunity to compete with their peers around the world to create their own app, a Doha College statement said.
Doha College celebrated its latest cohort going out into the world, with a touching graduation ceremony dedicated to the Class of 2022, a statement said. The event was attended by the British ambassador to Qatar Jonathan Wilks, guest speaker Fatima El Mahdi, head of Thimun Qatar, and regaled with musical interludes performed by Doha College students.
For the first time since the pandemic began, and for the first time in its new Al Wajba campus, Doha College unveiled its annual exhibition displaying the work of GCSE and A-Level students of Fine Art and Photography.
The first such ceremony since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the first on the new Al Wajba campus, Doha College’s Secondary Awards Ceremony saw more than 200 students being recognised for commitment to their education and their positive impact on the school community.
