The Minister of Education and Higher Education, H E Dr Mohammed bin Abdul Wahed Al Hammadi, reviewed the activities and events of the technical, scientific, cultural and sporting programmes offered by summer centres for school students.

This came during the Minister’s visit yesterday to the Barzan Youth Center in Umm Salal Ali, where he met with the  centre’s officials and students who briefed him on the progress of summer centres and the extent to which students benefit from the programmes offered to them.

Activities in summer centres, which are organised by the Ministries of Education, Higher Education, and Culture and Sports, began on July 14 in 14 centres, split evenly for both boys and girls, as well as two centres for students with special needs, namely the Al Gharafa Club Center for boys and the Al Resala Independent Secondary School for Girls, in cooperation with the Mada Assistive Technology Centre of the Ministry of Transport and Communications. The activities of summer centres are attended by Qataris, residents of public schools, and Qataris in private schools from ages 6-18, with the aim being to invest the students’ leisure time for their own benefit.
