The house system is a distinctly British feature of the school that encourages collegiality and healthy competition amongst students.
What is a school house system?
The main function of the house system is to develop a sense of identity or belonging and to celebrate achievements. Each house symbol at DBS represents an element of Qatar.
It is important for students to have the opportunity to play an active role and contribute to a community within their school, which allows them to develop skills and talents and acknowledges their successes in a wide range of ways.
We encourage students to play an active role in the success of their house. Individual and team efforts are rewarded and students are expected to contribute to Inter-house competitions throughout the year.
