PE teachers and Coordinators of the After School Activities Programme at ACS Doha

ACS Doha balances learning inside the classroom with learning and developing outside of the traditional classroom setting, with co-curricular activities being an integral part of this. Since the opening of ACS Doha in September 2011, the school’s ASA Programme has been an integral part in addressing the need to continue to learn and develop outside the classroom as well as for students to socialise, have fun and to build lifelong friendships. We have had an overwhelmingly positive response and there are currently 180 students from KG through to Grade 12 taking part in the programme.
