The Lebanese School of Qatar was founded in 1976 by an elite group of men and women who had their country Lebanon and the Lebanese expats’ best interest at heart. They invested their time, effort and money generously and without respite to cater to the educational needs of the Lebanese Community in Qatar.
These benefactors needed financial and administrative support, and were blessed to find it in His Excellency Abdalluh Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah and the Lebanese Ambassadors who have served in Qatar since the school’s inception, sharing the same vision and aspiring to make it a reality.
His Excellency’s incessant generosity, hard work, and his governance of the school’s Board of Trustees, have propelled the school into more prosperity and excellence.
This dream would not have come to life without the endorsement of His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani and his father, His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani who had gone above and beyond, welcoming the Lebanese community with open arms, and bestowing a piece of land in West Bay with all the needed provisions and facilitating all legal processes to ensure the main Campus Dafna stands today to accommodate the Lebanese students in Qatar.
The Lebanese School remains on a progressive path in its achievements and expansion; the latter being witnessed in the opening of new campus for the French Primary in 2018-2019, thanks to the tremendous efforts of the administrators and the Board of Trustees and their leader.
The dream might have started in a house, but it has grown into two campuses, and the best is yet to come!
