This week saw the very happy, successful and positive official Opening Ceremony of King’s College Doha. A vibrant ceremony with terrific children was interspersed with some wise words from Sheikhs, Ambassadors and Headmasters. The whole show left everyone even more touched and inspired than I think they had anticipated as, even after only six months of existence, it is a school that has remarkable warmth and a fast growing soul of its own. I think even those more closely associated with the school were taken by a very strong sense of shared achievement, trusted partnership and a deeply felt common sense of purpose about a bright future. There are some photos in the Newsletter and if you would like to read the articles which were published in the Qatar Tribune or Gulf Times then do click on the relevant words in this sentence.

The show going on this week at home is the Year 6 play which I thoroughly enjoyed last night – final performance this evening. The children were excellent and performed with great maturity, poise, timing and awareness and it is worth remembering that many of them are only 10 years old. I have been wondering for a while, though, if Mrs Keirle is picking on me both professionally and personally: with two plays entitled The Demon Headmaster and The Fifty Year School Trip!

This time next week we will have enjoyed the last show of this term as the House Music competition brings matters to a close. Before that, I hope today’s weather can hold through the weekend for Sunday’s Friends of King’s Hall Easter Egg Hunt at Willett Hill which will be another wonderful show of its kind. We’ve had about 200 people sign up and so I’ll need to ensure my burger flipping skills are at their best!
