Two Indian schools to open in Qatar soon

Two new schools adhering to Indian curriculum will open in Qatar soon. The opening will help alleviate the problem of seat shortage in Indian schools.
Galileo International School at Muaither is all set to open on August 25, while Monarch International School at Wukair will be operational from September this year.
Earlier in April this year, another Indian school, Loyola International School, started operations with over 600 students at its Wukair campus.
“Opening of these three new schools this year will bridge the gap between large number of Indian students seeking admissions and number of seats available in Indian schools. In fact, the seats will outnumber students once all these schools are operational,” a senior official at the Indian Embassy in Doha told Qatar Tribune.
“There was a growing sense of desperation among parents who have been unable to secure admissions for their children due to shortage of seats at Indian curriculum schools. Now, this will be a matter of past,” the official said.
Galileo International School Chairperson Aida al Shahri told Qatar Tribune that all formalities have been completed to open the school for students from August 25 when Indian schools will open after the summer vacations.
“While we have got permission to run classes from KG 1 to grade 12, we are taking admissions only for KG1 to grade 6 this academic session. From the next academic session, we will open admissions for all classes from KG 1 to grade 12,” Shahri said.
Spread over an area of 14,700 square metres, the state-of-the-art Galileo International School can accommodate 1,100 students this year and the number of seats will increase once the school is fully operational from the next academic session.
“We have hired very qualified principal and teaching staff from India. The school is currently conducting induction programmes for teachers and administrators,” she said.
Monarch International School (MIS), the second campus of Delhi Public School – Modern Indian School (DPS MIS), will run classes from KG1 to grade 5 this academic session.
“Our curriculum is based on the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in India. The school will also reflect the needs of the international and multi-cultural student body and capitalise on the unique opportunities provided by being located in Qatar,” Monarch International School President Hassan A Chougule said.
According to Chougule, Monarch International School is the first school to create the community of learners, parents, teachers and students using the technology solutions that are available to us in the world today.
“We have partnered with IYC World in India and in Qatar to provide the digital curriculum, e-books and best IT solutions for our learners, teachers and parents. We will have iPads and tabs for students, laptops for teachers and admin staff, best hardware, networks and a wifi campus to enhance the teaching and learning in the school as well as home,” he said.
