Eco-School

Being a school in the middle of the desert with scarce natural resources means it’s vitally important we educate our students to reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible. All our students are encouraged to become members of our Eco Committee and to encourage other students to use sustainable practices and look after their environment.

Our Eco Committee led by our 6th Formers and staff have chosen paper recycling, plastic recycling and litter reduction as the key themes. A number of projects have been implemented including recycling bins throughout the whole school, a plastic bottle greenhouse, litter picking programmes, participation in Earth Hour and most importantly the incorporation of environmental issues into the curriculum for all students.

After two years of hard work and education, Doha College was the first school in Qatar to be awarded an Eco-Schools Green Flag from the Foundation for Environmental Education in 2016 following a vigorous inspection which looked into all the sustainable initiatives and projects being run by the school.
