The Japanese School of Doha, which was set up recently in the West Nasiriya area, near the Qatar Foundation’s Education City, will be formally opened on May 11, a top official of the Japanese embassy said yesterday.
Giving this information, deputy head of the country’s Japanese mission, Ryoji Iwama said the school has been set up by the Japanese Society of Doha. Already about a dozen students, mostly children of Japanese nationals serving in the country, have joined the school, he said.
A high-level delegation from Japan, possibly including a minister, is expected to attend the inaugural ceremony of the school, according to Iwama.
The school, he said, is planning to open its doors to Qatari and expatriate students in different phases. “The details and modalities of such admissions are being worked out,” the diplomat said.
Meanwhile, replying to another query, Iwama said about 30-40 people of different nationalities, including Qataris, are learning the Japanese language at the Language Teaching Institute, New Salata.
The official added that Al Bayan Educational Complex for girls has been regularly conducting Japanese language as an extra-curricular programme for its students for more than two years now.
