MES Indian School,Doha-Qatar
M.E.S Indian school or Middle-East Education Society, or formerly Muslim Education Society commonly known as MES, is a private school for boys and girls, founded in 1974. It is the first private expatriate school in Qatar, and the largest, primarily catering to the large Indian expatriate population in Qatar. The school is affiliated to both the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the State Board for the southern state of Kerala, India. The medium of instruction at the school is English.
That the present education system is hardly adequate to equip the students to face the challenges of a fast changing modern world is an undeniable fact. M.E.S Qatar was convinced that radical changes have to be effected in the teaching methodology and course contents so that the system of education is not merely information based but value oriented, formulated to bring about transformation and maturity in the personality of the students.
Spend more time with your child—playing, visiting, going on errands together, cleaning the house, singing silly songs, watching movies, talking, and just observing. Having you close by at this time adds to your child’s sense of security. Observe your child’s play activities. Are you noticing any unusual acting out or aggression? If so, encourage your child to talk about the feelings behind the actions. Bring out art materials, and encourage drawing, painting, sculpting with clay, etc. Art is very therapeutic, and helps release pent-up emotions that can’t be expressed in other ways.
Thus in 1974, M.E.S Qatar started the M. E. S Indian School of Doha, to rejuvenate the existing education system. The school, recognized by the Ministry of Education, State of Qatar and affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, Delhi, is one of the premier educational institutions in the Gulf. The school has attained unparalleled status and stability in Doha with its own campus. It is gratifying to note that the school stands as a symbol of excellence, fulfilling the dreams of its founding fathers.
The staff comprising 470 teaching and 270 non-teaching staff including transport section not only fulfill the academic needs of the students but also take care of the all-round development of their personality.
The school's Faculty Improvement Programmes enables teachers to keep themselves abreast of the new developments in educational technology. They periodically attend workshops, seminars, conferences etc, organized by NCERT, C.B.S.E., Gulf Council and local educational agencies.
