EMS Al Khor World Read Aloud Day - 16.02.2017

On February 16th, EMS Al Khor celebrated World Read Aloud Day, undertaking classroom activities across all three divisions. As part of this initiative, Year 7 and 8 students read aloud to Year 1 and 2 students. Here are some reflections by Year 8 about their experience: “Reading with the Year 2s was fun and adorable. They read the book with me but they were distracted sometimes. I asked them questions and they gave funny answers. I enjoyed reading with the Year 2s and I hope this encouraged them to read more.” – John “Last Thursday was a memorable day for us Year 8s. We got the chance to enjoy and learn together with Year 1 and 2s. We were reading some children’s books for them. We practiced some metacognitive strategies and we enjoyed it so much. In the beginning, I felt shy with Year 1 and I’m sure they also felt the same. When we started reading the book, my shyness turned into happiness. Seeing the little kids improving themselves made me so proud and happy. I hope we will do this much more often so that we’ll have more fun while learning. I’ll never forget this memorable day for all of us.” – Diane

Students from Global Perspectives & General Paper: Trip to MIA 2017

Students from Global Perspectives and General Paper took a trip to the Museum of Islamic Art to view the work of Iraqi artist Dia Al-Azzawi. The collection is one of the first times in history that the work of an artist's entire life was brought together for a showing. The students have been studying conflict and peace as well as national sovereignty. Much of Azzawi's work is concerned with conflict in the region and thus we were able to look at the work of an individual who has spent much of his life communicating about those very things.

EMS Al Khor Health Initiative - 16.10.2016

EMS Al Khor has been involved with the Growth Programme that was set by the, Ministry of Health (MOH), for all schools in Qatar. This initially started in January 2016 and took over two months to complete all necessary recordings and paperwork. Some students were re-measured and re-weighed six months later to gain further data. Our EMS Al Khor nurse, Nurse Helen, made referrals of the under and overweight students, and notified the local nutrition team from the Al Khor Hospital. On Sunday, 16th October, a nutritionist from the Al Khor Hospital, along with Nurse Helen, hosted an informative and comprehensive presentation to the parents involved in the study. The presentation was well attended and all present learned valuable information about healthy food and life style choices. There were even examples of healthy foods for parents and students to sample! Parents were encouraged to liaise with the nutritional team at Al Khor Hospital for further professional advice regarding their children’s Body Mass Index and healthy life choices. Our staff at EMS Al Khor is dedicated to improve our students’ health and well-being by providing healthy food choices at our cafeteria and offering athletic after-school activities. Nurse Helen will also continue to monitor these and all students at EMS Al Khor. Hopefully, all of our children will be of acceptable body weight and enjoy healthy lives
