Doha College celebrates its first community Iftar
Doha College has celebrated its first ever community Iftar at its West Bay campus, organised by the Arabic department. A phenomenal 300 parents from various nationalities and ethnicities attended, each bringing a dish to share, and the potluck-style meal made for a very successful and culturally diverse evening.
Celebrations began with Doha College’s Leadership Group and Arabic team receiving guests and welcoming them with a speech in Arabic. Following this was the traditional breaking of fast with dates and prayer. Excited children dressed in traditional or very special attire enjoyed Garangao treats donated by DC families Al-Khalaf and Aldarhem. Delicious dishes that parents had prepared themselves were laid out in a spectacular spread for all to share.
Doha College Principal Dr Steffen Sommer expressed his thanks to the Arabic department and head of primary for organising the event, as well as the Friends of Doha College parent committee for their contribution to the evening.
