Join us for coffee & chat!
Have you ever considered home schooling? Maybe you’re unhappy with your children’s current educational situation, or maybe you’re worried about getting a place for the fall. You’ve thought about it, but you don’t know much about it, and you have no idea even where to go or whom to ask. We’ve got ya covered!
Introducing “Considering Home Schooling” Coffee meet-ups!
If you’re considering taking charge of your children’s education and would like to know more from the folks actually doing it, come chat with current members of the Doha Home Educators to find out about how to begin, where to go & what to do. Current home schooling moms are happy to answer your questions, help to resolve your issues, and allay your fears. You CAN do this!
Please email us if you are interested in attending and we will send you the dates, times, and locations of our next event!
DHE sailors proudly show off their certificates.
DHE takes to the high seas! Some of our students recently had their first sailing camp with Regatta Sailing Academy. Our young sailors learned a lot and truly enjoyed the experience! We’ll be holding another camp in May, and are looking toward the possibility of getting a weekly class started. Sail on, mates!
This spring, DHE is announcing a great opportunity for our older students to get together. Often plagued by increasing demands on their time between academics, sports, and other activities, our teens don’t get as much pure “hanging out” time with other home schooled friends as they would like. We hope that Movie Nights for our 12 & ups will go some way to curing that. Our first one, featuring Lord of the Rings, was a raging success! If you are home schooling a teen, please email us for details on the next one!

Don’t worry – they’re only MOSTLY dead.
Spring Co-op 2013 is on the horizon! DHE is proud to be able to offer a chance for home schooled children in Doha not only to take a wide array of classes for a whole range of ages (2-15!), but also to have a great time of fellowship and unstructured fun on a regular basis. Registration is open until the 21st, and weekly classes begin the 25th. Don’t miss it!
Spring is springing…with Spring Co-op 2013!
DHE recently got to participate in a multi-week workshop with the Museum of Islamic Art, in which the children could explore different themes in different media. A good time was had by all!

Recently, DHE students visited the Qatar Museum Authority’s Katara Annex for a tour and workshop of Chinese artist Yan Pei-Ming’s “Painting the History” which will be in Doha through January 12, 2013.
In the exhibit, Pei-Ming examines the history of revolution, and proposes the question of which had more influence – the revolutionary, or those trying to stop a revolution?
After seeing the exhibit, students used shading techniques with photographs from Pei-Ming’s Wall of Portraits to mimic some of the brush effects he put into his work.
