Note from the Director
It was a pleasure meeting many of you at the Parent / Teacher Conference. As our Cycle 2 instruction has come to an end, please continue to reinforce studies at home during Cycle 2 exams. Our teachers are more than willing to receive correspondence from you to ensure each students’ success.
International Culture Appreciation
DeBakey is comprised of many beautiful cultures and backgrounds. We recently held our International Day celebration for students to celebrate each other. It is important that students understand the importance of respect and sincere appreciation for others. Attending our school in Doha provides students a global, first-hand interaction and opportunity to gain friendships with students of various cultures. Such an advantage will greatly benefit all students in their future endeavors.
We would like your support in efforts of continuing culture appreciation:
- Encourage your child to build friendships at school
- Remind your child to respect their classmates that may look or speak differently
- Ask your child about their efforts to welcome others
Volunteering has many benefits for teens, including character building and team work development. Community service projects teach valuable skills that will be helpful to a student in college and beyond. Our school has developed partnerships with local organizations, such as Reach Out To Asia and Best Buddies Qatar, along with other volunteer opportunities available within the school.
Students are required to complete 100 volunteer hours prior to graduation. We encourage all of our students to begin volunteer hours in Grade 9. Please view the link below for a volunteer opportunities, and encourage your children to participate.

Qatar National Day
In recognition of Qatar National Day, we will have a celebration on Thursday, December 11, 2014. Students are required to attend school on this day (attendance will be taken). There will be an early dismissal at 12 P.M. Please ensure necessary pick-up arrangements for your child.
Students are encouraged to wear Qatari national clothing (Girls: abaya, Boys: thobe), or students may wear shirts matching the colors of the Qatar national flag (white & maroon) with uniform pants. Students may also wear their standard uniform if he or she chooses.
We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin but we all belong to the human race.
