As per the reports of The Peninsula, the Ministry of Education and Higher Education has decided to implement teaching the Arabic language, Islamic studies, and Qatar history compulsory subjects for private kindergartens (KGs) from the academic year 2022-2023.
During the previous years, the said subjects were taught to students from grades 1 to 12 and Qatar history from grade 9 onwards. According to Assistant Undersecretary for Private Education Affairs at the Ministry, Omar Abdul Aziz Al Naama, this will be the first academic year where private kindergartens are required to learn the Arabic language and Islamic studies.
He said officials from the department concerned at the Ministry will visit private kindergartens to ensure implementation of the decision and evaluate the outcome in a bid to provide necessary solutions, if needed, for the success of the project.
He added that the initiatives announced by the Ministry this year include ‘My values define my identity', ‘Strengthening national identity’ and the ‘Ethical charter’. He said there is a comprehensive evaluation process for all initiatives in private schools, measuring the impact of these initiatives on students, and taking into account the rights and duties of school operators, directors, and boards of trustees.
