School Without Walls

School Without Walls

Each winter, Qatar Academy hosts an experiential-learning program for Primary School students from Grades 2 - 5. The School Without Walls (SWW) program enables staff to apply and extend classroom learning to hands-on situations using the PYP teaching models out in the field.
For the past several years, Qatar Academy's curriculum-based SWW program has been a huge success. Students thrive in the SWW environment, with access to a beach, mangrove swamp, and local wildlife. This unique desert environment provides the students with a wonderful setting to apply classroom lessons to the "real world". For example, an activity on pollution and its effects on the ocean has a far greater impact when the teacher can give hands-on demonstrations on the beach.
This year, Grades 3 and 4 will have one day  . Grade 5 will have an opportunity for Camping Under the Stars” in the grounds of one of the hotels in Doha, boys and girls separately. This will be a “first” for students at QAD, some of our sister schools are also developing similar SWW programs.
Qatar Academy’s School Without Walls program also incorporates personal development and team building components. Students are encouraged as they learn to accept and deal with new responsibilities, developing character as they work independently and in teams. Arbitrary acts of kindness and inclusion are frequently displayed at SWW, as the students evolve into more mature and caring people.
