Coinciding with the new 2019-2020 academic year, Compass International School Doha welcomed parents and students on Saturday to its first “Open Day” event held at the recently-opened campus in Al Themaid.
Parents and their children were treated to a comprehensive tour of the campus and the facilities, and were encouraged to explore the many activities at their leisure.
Across the campus, families took part in a broad range of educational, creative and athletic activities and demonstrations aimed at Early Years-, Primary-, and Secondary-aged children.
Compass International School Doha, a Nord Anglia Education school, has multiple internationally-respected curricula on offer, including the English National Curriculum, the International Primary Curriculum, the Early Years Foundation Stage, the IGCSEs (International General Certificate of Secondary Education), and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
A-levels and BTEC (Business and Technology Education Council) vocational credentials will be added in the coming years, the school has said in a statement.
The school also offers a range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities that engage students across a diverse array of subject areas, in particular STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) and the performing arts.
A Compass International School Doha education is enhanced through collaborations with world leading organisations, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Julliard School and Unicef, the statement notes.
The Themaid campus includes a swimming pool, football pitch, multi-purpose sports hall, an auditorium, science laboratories, specialist areas for design technology and information and communications technology (ICT), and music, dance and drama spaces.
