Dear Parents,

“Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.” Marian Wright Edelman

The Student Leadership Team

The Student Leadership Team proudly planned and hosted a food feast and social gathering for the extended members of the school staff (security, cleaners, maintenance and drivers) on Thursday. This is part of their year-long project, linked to the UNICEF Sustainable Development Goal of ‘Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions’, which they have called the project ‘Staff Includation’. The aim of their project is to better recognise these wonderful people who help us every day and make them feel as much as part of the school community as everyone else.

Global Money Week

Along with a number of schools across Doha, we participated in ‘Global Money Week’ an initiative led by the Embassy of the Netherlands and QNB Bank. The purpose of the week was to focus on all aspects of money, making our children more aware of spending and, more importantly, saving as well as other money management strategies.

MK Primary classes welcomed volunteers that worked in finance, including a number of financial advisors from Ashgal, the Swiss and Dutch Embassies and the Marriott hotel who talked about their roles and the importance of careful money management. These activities complemented the week’s focus on money in all primary mathematics lessons. The questions and solutions suggested by students were fantastic and each visitor commented on how impressed they were with our students’ attitude to learning and the confidence in which they presented their ideas.

Our Year 5 students visited the Qatar Stock Exchange. The students had the opportunity to tour the facilities, meet traders and complete tasks relating to different Qatar-based companies which concluded with students trying to persuade ‘traders’ to buy shares. A great experience was had by all, plus they had lovely food too!

 

The First Inter-Campus Swimming Competition

Wednesday saw the inaugural inter-campus swimming competition. Students from MK, Gharaffa and Rayyan competed in a variety of individual and team swim races. It was an absolute pleasure to witness the camaraderie between the schools and the way students were supported and encouraged each other throughout the event. Parent turnout was fantastic and this really added to the excitement of the occasion. We look forward to many more inter-campus sporting events in the future.

Have a wonderful and restful break and we look forward to welcoming you back to school on Sunday, April 14th.

Jimmy Frawley, Head of Primary
