Qatar Foundation (QF) recently celebrated its National Programs and Heritage Day (NPHD) 2018 at the Education City Student Center.

Over the course of the two-day event, students from QF schools showcased their school projects relating to the National Programs, which include Islamic Studies, Qatari History, Arabic Language, and Qatari Heritage – a program unique to QF schools. 

The event, organized by Pre-University Education’s (PUE’s) Academic Affairs, part of QF, brought together students from QF schools to deliver performances and research projects in line with PUE’s vision of ‘Leading Learning’. 

Ms. Abeer Al Khalifa, Executive Director, Academic Affairs, PUE, said: “Through this event we hope to inspire our students to seek out knowledge, as doing so will enable them to grow and become active citizens within their communities. I encourage all students to find ways to promote and celebrate their heritage while exploring different ways to best excel in education and learning.”

Participating schools included Qatar Academy Doha, Qatar Academy Al Khor, Qatar Academy Wakra, Qatar Academy Sidra, Qatar Academy Msheireb, Qatar Leadership Academy, and Awsaj Academy.

Awards were presented for Best Theatrical Performance, Best Student Initiative, and Best School Initiative. Additionally, as part of the Al Munshid Competition, students recited poems to the audience, and the top three performances were honored.

PUE also welcomed representatives from a number of private and public organizations that took part in the NPHD 2018 activities.
