Encouraging active minds at Doha English Speaking School

The Doha English Speaking School (DESS) in Qatar waved off thirty three children and five members of staff as they headed to the BSME (British Schools in the Middle East) Games 2017.

Keen to support the local initiative, which enabled the children to take part in a number of competitions including swimming, football, netball and athletics, Jacobs helped sponsor their sports kit. Twelve schools competed in the Games hosted by Horizon English School in Dubai on 9-11 March 2017.  

Jacobs Vice President David Bennett said, “Jacobs is proud to support the BSME team - an important part of our extended family in Qatar and a demonstration of the Jacobs Culture of Caring.”

The event is the pinnacle of the sporting calendar at DESS and is a fantastic opportunity for children in their Key Stage 2 Year groups to compete for the school.
