Once again, DHE members will be doing coffee and conversation for those who wish to learn more about the possibility of home schooling. Join us at IKEA from 9-11 AM this Saturday, 3 September!
Summer is coming to a close, and many people are returning to Doha. Most of DHE’s members are preparing for their new year of school.
And some are not. And that’s okay.
With dozens of families from all over the world, DHE members have many different schedules to suit their needs. So when it comes to making a home school schedule, there are as many as there are homeschooling families! Some are in the middle of their school year. Some school year round. Homeschooling allows for choices.
As long as you’re meeting your home country/state/province requirements, you can do whatever suits your family. Paralyzed by choice? Not to worry. American blogger Kris Bales has some great suggestions on how to set up your home schooling year.
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!
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.
