Monarch International School (Monarch), a new “international school with an Indian heritage” set to open in Qatar, is awaiting final approval from the Ministry of Education and Higher Education.
In a statement yesterday, the school’s management said they “are also in the process of associating with the Delhi Public School Society and getting affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi”.
“Our vision at Monarch is to be inspiring, supporting and nurturing for our students, for them to be well-educated and empathetic global citizens,” the statement notes.
The school will be for children from around the world, aged three-and-half to 18 years.
In the upcoming academic year, the school will offer Kindergarten (KG1 & KG2) and the Primary Years Programme from Year 1 to Year 5.
Monarch is a sister concern of DPS-MIS, “a well-established school in Doha that has a long and successful record of serving the expatriate community through quality education”.
“Monarch is going to be a next-generation school with a child-centric digital curriculum, assuring success in every child’s overall development.
Monarch promises to provide a supportive family environment, which will enable our students to discover and develop their passions and talents, building the confidence needed to lead happy and meaningful lives,” the statement adds.
The school is headed by Meenal Bakshi, who has attended a strategic leadership programme at IIM Ahmedabad, India.
She was a programme leader for the Cambridge International Certificate for teachers and trainers from Cambridge University, the UK.
She has 19 years of experience with eight years of leadership experience working with various international schools offering Cambridge, Australian, Singaporean, Indian and IB curricula in Singapore, Indonesia, the Maldives and India.
