DBS School Calendar - Academic Year 2019-2020
Communications to DBS parents of students in Year 7 - 13. In order to continue to support your child(ren) in their education and in preparation of their examinations (iGCSE, AS Level or IB), we have put in place a contingency plan whereby every classroom teacher has a Google Classroom to set work for your child(ren). You can find all the codes on the school website or here. If your child(ren) is (are) in year 7 to year 10, you can find the Google Classroom codes here. If your child doesn’t know how to access their Google Classroom, you can find a step-by-step guide here. Staff and students are expected to follow the Ramadan hour timetable below: Teachers will be online during these hours as per the normal timetable to answer any questions from students and give them direct feedback.
Communications to DBS parents of students in Preschool to Year 6 Due to our closure, we will be making a rapid switch from an in-person learning environment to a 100% online learning environment. From the experience of schools in East Asia, who have been compelled to do this, it should be noted this switch is highly likely to cause stress and anxiety for students, parents and staff members. Therefore, I would like to please ask for patience and calm from all stakeholders (parents, teachers and children). To begin with, the majority of work set in PS – Year 2 will be via Class Dojo and for Year 3 – 6 will be via Google Classroom. Here is a link to a video to show you how Google Classroom works. To maintain a school routine at home, here is a suggested day broken up into periods for Year 1 – Year 6. 8:15 am – 9:05 am 9:20 am – 10:10 am 10:10 am – 11:00 am 11:20 am – 12:10 pm 12:10 pm – 1:00 pm P1: Maths P2: Reading/Arabic P3: Writing/Islamic P4: Physical exercise P5: Topic/Specialist/Science For Years 3 – 6, your Google Classroom codes have been shared with you via your class teacher. If you need any further support, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher.
Visitors will be restricted to urgent visits only and all visitors after gates are closed will have to use sanitisers at the gate Only parents of children up to Year 2 will be allowed to escort their children on to the site at the start of the day
On Wednesday 15th January,Doha British School will be holding the Year 11 Parents' Evening. This is an opportunity for DBS parents to speak to their son/daughter's subject teacher about the progress they are making during this academic year and also what they need to do during the last few key months of Key Stage 4.
Happy Qatar National Day to all DBS students and their families!
