WATCH: We Are Qatar goes Back to School with DESS

In the spirit of the back-to-school season in Qatar, this Flashback Friday is all about school, students, knowledge, and fun!

In this video, we offer a look back at the time the Qatar Living team dropped in at the Doha English Speaking School (DESS) to teach a substitute class and test the students' knowledge on some of the objects commonly found in a school setting. 

Under QL's We Are Qatar series, the team presented a visual challenge to the students at DESS, who tackled each question with confidence and zeal.  

Many of the kids proved up to the task, and for those who guessed wrong, they made up for it with their great enthusiasm.

One of the oldest British schools in Qatar, with a legacy of over 45 years, DESS offers classes from foundation stage 1 to stage 6, catering to children between the ages of 3 and 11.

Located in Fereej Kulaib, DESS is comprised of a diverse student body. By the end of Grade 6, the school prepares students to go on to attend local schools, UK independent schools and grammar schools within and outside of Qatar.

The school is in the process of expanding its facilities to provide a ‘state of the art’ new building where students will be educated to Year 7 from 2020 and then Year 8 from 2021 provisionally.
