our MYP and DP students spent the day moving, cheering, playing and overall
having tons of fun with their teachers and classmates during the 2020 MYP-DP
total, the students had to go around nine stations to determine the winning
house which, at the end, would go into the traditional battle with teachers
playing tag of war. The nine sports stations were a 1km run, vortex throw,
javelin, 100m run, vertical jump, high jump, shot put, broad jump and throw to
win -a diverse and fun selection which made everything even more interesting
special recognition and thank you needs to go to our DP students, who organized
this event with the mentorship of Ms. Canan as part of their CAS Programme; and
to the teachers who gave their support and got involved in the activities: you
of course, a round of applause must go to the winning team, the Yellow
Scorpions, who not only took the most points, but who also beat the teachers in
the very anticipated tag of war.
We hope everyone had a great time today and that the Preschool, PYP, MYP and DP sporting events we celebrated the last two weeks serve as the perfect introduction to February 11th, when the whole country will move to celebrate Qatar National Sports Day!
Wednesday, January 22nd to Friday, January 24th a group of SEK Qatar MYP and DP
students attended the 9th annual THIMUN Qatar Model United Nations Conference, representing
the delegation of Jamaica. It was our 3rd appearance at the conference and we’re
glad to share that each year our delegation is growing.
students collaborated with students from 165 nationalities to discuss various
global issues in relation to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal of
Health and Well Being. They vigorously negotiated solutions to topics such as
achieving universal healthcare, measures to address drug control and crime
prevention, and preventing
contemporary forms of slavery.
We would like to congratulate students on their efforts towards building a cooperative community amongst today’s youth!
What an amazing and active morning! Today PYP students from
Preschool 5 up to Grade 5 filled the school with enthusiasm thanks to the
different sporting activities that were organized to celebrate Sports Day.
We had 5 different stations set up where students could
practice their athletic skills. A penalty challenge, tail tag, tag of war, a
race, long jump and basketball kept kids and their parents cheering on
