We are a group of families living in Qatar and learning at home who come together to celebrate our diverse world.

It was with great pleasure that Doha Home Educators participated as a special delegation to The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN) in Qatar.

Seven DHE students had the amazing experience of one of the largest international MUN conferences in the world, held at the QNCC 27-29 January, 2016. These students learned public speaking skills, research skills, and learning ideas from another perspective – life skills hard to obtain in regular school settings, public or home! The MUN experience helped our students to grow, and promoted leadership skills. DHE is proud of these incredible young people, and look forward to working with the MUN program here in Qatar in the funture.

DHE’s 10th co-op has successfully launched!

Students are learning about art, electronics, physical education, mind-bending logic, cooking, and much more!

DHE is thrilled that we have been able to provide such cooperative learning opportunities to the home schooled expatriate community for five years now. But the key is “cooperative!” We are non-profit, and the teaching and organization is an all-hands-on-deck endeavor by parents. Huge thanks to our many parents who have stepped up to teach this term, and to all our other parents in helping roles – it is due to you that things like co-op happen!

We’re holding coffees at IKEA again for those who are new to home schooling, or who are thinking about it and inquiring. Won’t you join us? Our next one is 19 September, IKEA Cafe in Al Kharitiyat (north of Doha, exit 8 from Shamal Road.) 9 AM – 11 AM – See you there!

It’s a new school year! Most DHE members are back in Doha, and back at schooling. What better way to celebrate than spend time with home schooling friends! Our DHE Back to School party was held this week at the Gondolonia Bowling Center in Villagio Mall. Home schoolers young and old came out to have fun.

DHE hopes you are having a great new school year!

 

 

Happy Students...the Home School Way!

Happy Students…the Home School Way!

Many folks have questions about exactly what we are and what we do. We have added a page for that!

We hope it answers some questions and concerns, and we wish you all the best in determining the right educational solutions for your family.

Back to School…Hard at Work

Sometimes, home schoolers are asked the question, “What do you DO all day?

Glad you asked!

We study, as any other students do. Sometimes that’s traditionally. Sometimes it’s not – like when we’re reading on the couch, or wandering through a museum, or writing thoughts while sitting outside.

We take notes and do labs. Or we create artwork or plays.Or we read aloud. Or we work through a computer. Or we do a mix of all of these things, depending on the subject and how far into it we’re getting.

There is not “right” or “wrong” way to home school. It is all about finding what works for your child.

Sometimes folks who are new to home schooling are worried about what they are doing. Really, as long as what you are doing is motivating your child to learn and discover, you’re doing fine.

To all of our home schoolers who have gotten started on their new year this month, Happy Home Schooling.

A Winning School

It was a great way to end the year at the beginning of summer. DHE students were recognized for their contributions to Mathaf’s Black and White exhibition. By allowing our network to enter as a “school”, we were given the opportunity to show how home educated children can and do shine.

DHE is proud of the students in our network who participated! Enjoy a sample of their work!
