Gulf English School (GES) recently organised 'Week Without Walls' that took learning beyond the classroom and expanded learners’ understanding of the curriculum and its possible applications. Besides contributing to their individual development, these trips created learning experiences that encouraged each student to realise their potential.
Life in Medical School
We recently had a visit from one of our alumni, who talked to our current students about what life is like at medical school. Mona Abdelmoniem, who graduated from GES in June 2012, is studying medicine at Weill Cornell University Qatar. She is currently in her fifth year of study and is working at Hamad General Hospital as part of her studies.
As part of our reading month, and in line with the G.E.S. vision ‘to provide a learning environment which is caring, motivating and supportive’, we organised shared reading among students in the Infant and Junior schools.
