The Hamilton International School (Hamilton), a brand-new school located in Mesaimeer, Doha, welcomed yesterday the first classes of primary students to kick off the new academic year 2019/2020.
Students were received by the highest calibre of teachers in Doha, who showed them around the school, and conducted orientation and introductory sessions.
The new students got a chance to enjoy Hamilton’s state-of-the-art facilities, featuring the largest school theatre in Doha, indoor sports centre, full-sized basketball court, two swimming pools, tennis courts, dance studios, fitness centre and a seating area for large sporting events. For cooler months of the year, the students will be able to use the outdoor sports area, which includes a professional standard football pitch and an athletics track.
“This is the day we have been preparing for. We are so happy to see all these fantastic students kicking off their new academic year with us. It is going to be an exciting year, as we embark on this journey together towards nurturing a generation that has passion for learning, realises its limitless potential, and appreciates diversity,” Hamilton principal Terry Senior said.
Hamilton, part of International Schools Partnership, a UK-based owner and operator of 40 schools globally, offers the International Early Years and International Primary Curriculum, which is taught in over 2,000 schools across 98 countries. Students at Hamilton will eventually graduate with either an IB Diploma or a High School Diploma accredited by NEASC, a US accreditation organisation.
During the first year of operation, Hamilton will cater to students ages 3-10 years, and will then continue to grow and expand to become a pre-KG through Grade 12 school. Hamilton school campus was inaugurated few weeks earlier with a huge Community Fair, followed by a school theatre launch in collaboration with Gotta Sing! from West End London.
Hamilton is taking registrations for students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 5 (Year 6) for its first academic year (beginning August 2019).
