Thursday May 15th

Cross Country & Road Race events in Dukhan

The PE Department once again hosted a number of large inter-school sports competitions, most notably Cross Country and Road Race events for both Primary (QPPSSA) and Secondary (QUESS) schools. There were three events in total, with approximately 1500 students attending the races. Once again, we were fortunate to have the support of Dukhan Facilities and Security, without which we would not be able to host such large-scale events. The Dukhan Water Sports Club played host to both Cross Country events, utilising the surrounding desert area for some genuine ‘Qatar cross country’. The Road Race took place in and around the Community Football and Cricket Pitches. All three events were extremely successful and included some DES medal winners highlighted below:

Bronze medal winners – Fatima El Habibi (Year 9) & Sharoff Dion Zafar Ali

Silver medal winners – Abdullah Al-Zaidy (Year 7), Yasir Pulikkal (Year 9) & Shaheera Shahid (Year 12)

Gold medal winner – Firdaous El-Habibi
