Doha College, one of Qatar's oldest international schools, recently celebrated the remarkable journey of its graduating class of 2024.

The event brought together the graduates, their parents, teachers, siblings and many others from the Doha College community.

Throughout the years, the Class of 2024 embraced everything from science fairs to sports tournaments, from Model United Nations conferences to artistic performances, from remote learning to International Awards residentials.

The ceremony was interspersed with captivating music and drama moments: a piano and violin duet delivered by Chaoyi Sha and Nicole Ong, a monologue from 'Dead Poets Society,' performed by Joseph Tomasicchio, and a rendition of 'Wonderwall' by the very popular band 'Experimental BBQ.'

Guest speaker Fatima El-Mahdi, head of THIMUN Qatar, delivered a passionate and inspiring speech. Senior vice principal Jerome Scafe, head of Secondary, sent off the fresh graduates with these words: “To our stellar graduating class of 2024; we thank you for being excellent role models for our younger students. Our school community will sorely miss the electricity you bring to the campus. Thank you for your indelible contributions to DC. This will always be your home away from home.”

Doha College principal David Tongue, is confident about the opportunities awaiting the graduates, stating: “It was such a pleasure to be able to say a fond farewell to our departing Year 13 students. They have been such a wonderful group of individuals and those members of the year group who spoke or performed at the ceremony were so impressive. They have very bright futures ahead of them."
