One hundred and sixty-five students who successfully completed their secondary education proudly received their diplomas during the graduation ceremony of the Omar bin Al Khattab Educational Complex for Boys Secondary School, at the Sheraton Doha yesterday. Mohammed Abdullah Al Maraghi, the school principal, in his message lauded the wisdom of the Qatari leadership, specifically their initiatives in the field of education. Al Maraghi expressed appreciation of the efforts of the Emir H H Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Heir Apparent H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, and H H Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned. “The graduation of our students in this Complex is a moment of great pride. It is the culmination of the honest efforts of the Complex to instill seriousness and clarity of knowledge among students, preparing them to serve their nation in various capacities and be the best ambassadors of their country,” said Al Maraghi. He also expressed pride in the quality of graduates the school has been producing since it was established 10 years ago as a pioneering scientific school, owing to the educational criteria developed by the school staff and administration. “We have been honoured to undertake the responsibility of implanting the spirit of innovation and creativity in students, encouraging them to always expand their horizons and moulding them to be some of the best in the region,” he said. He thanked the parents and Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO) for its constant support — financial and moral — to the school. Congratulating the graduates, their parents and the school management, Dr Mohamed Yousef Al Mulla, General Manager of QAPCO, said the company had taken upon itself to sponsor and support educational, humanitarian and charitable events in Qatar. Al Mulla pointed out that QAPCO, as a leading petrochemical producer and exporter in the Middle East, was constantly expanding and developing, and it always required new young graduates to be recruited to better enhance its potential and position in the world market. He noted that this year alone QAPCO had received 4,000 applications during the Career Fair and some of the applicants had already been recruited. “They would be given appropriate orientation and training to be qualified for their jobs. QAPCO will also sponsor the top students and grant them scholarships to pursue their studies and join the company after graduation,” said Al Mulla. Also present during the event were Rabia Al Ka’abi, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education; Dr Abdullah Al Kubeisi, Director of the Office of Sheikha Mozah; Dr Seif Al Hajri, Vice Chairman of Qatar Foundation; Sheikh Abdullah Al Thani, Vice Chairman for Education, Qatar Foundation; and officials from QAPCO and the school.
