Government schools student registration to start from 1st August.
Parents of students who will attend government schools in the coming academic year can begin registering their children as early as next month.
The Minister of Education and Higher Education indicated that new students enrolling in government institutions can begin the registration process on August 1.
“From August 1 to August 15, 2021, early registration of new pupils in government schools for the 2021-22 academic year will be available on the Public Services Portal for all nationalities,” the ministry announced in a tweet.
According to the webpage, the online registration process is only open to Qatari students, children of Qatari women, and ex-pats working in government fields, as well as students from GCC countries.
While the Student Affairs Department will evaluate the applications, the institution will make the final decision.
According to government statistics, Qatar currently has 207 public schools across the country, serving roughly 125,000 pupils.
Qatar’s education system, like that of many other countries throughout the world, has been disturbed since the Covid-19 malware first surfaced in 2019.
Education and health officials set up an online learning system almost immediately, then transitioned to a mixed learning model when instances declined. The education ministry tightened the restrictions for school staff in March.
According to the notice, no school workers will be allowed to enter school grounds unless they have a golden vaccination stamp on Ehteraz or a weekly negative Covid-19 test.
According to March numbers, 97 percent of teachers, workers, and administrative staff in Qatari schools were vaccinated.
Blended learning has continued since then, with 50 percent of students enrolled in school classes.
It’s unclear whether this technique will be continued in the coming school year.
