Qatar National Library held an informal panel discussion, “Indian Schools: Educating the Indian Expat Community,” on 3 May 2019.
The panel featured senior representatives of Qatar’s oldest established Indian schools, including Birla Public School, DPS Modern and MES Indian Schools, and focused on the impact of the Indian education sector in educating Indian expatriates in Qatar since the early 1970s.
Alumni present at the event shared their personal stories and discussed how these schools have helped to shape their professional lives.
Sayeed Mohammed, Information Services Librarian at the Library, said: “The event has given the community the chance to acknowledge and appreciate the positive impact of these schools on generations of students, which continue to play a major role in educating youth in Qatar. The Library supports the role of formal education in spreading knowledge, which can have a transformational effect on the lives of many.”
