We have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming our colleagues Anna and Sasha from King’s Hall in the UK this week. King’s Hall is the Prep School for King’s College in Taunton. Both ladies remarked on how wonderfully we blend the King’s heritage, ethos and values within a truly international environment, which they found was clearly evident when speaking to the staff and children. They were particularly impressed by the children’s exemplary behaviour, their open-minded outlook, thoughtful questions and infectious passion for learning. This feedback is incredibly important to hear as these are all key hallmarks of the outcomes we aim to achieve within our progressive group of schools and it demonstrates that the King’s culture of excellence is firmly established in Qatar. Before they headed back to the UK, they had the opportunity to explore Qatar and were impressed by the obvious investment in culture and education here – reminding us all how lucky we are to be playing an important role in helping represent ‘education for a new era’ in this beautiful country.
