British School Sherborne Qatar hosted a presentation by
engineering, architecture and environmental consultancy GHD’s
Marine Scientist Jonathan Wright, as part of their Qatar Enterprise
Program. The Program is designed to give school children the
opportunity to experience real-life business and a work environment
in order to raise awareness of career options for the future.
Students from Years 5 and 6 attended the
presentation, which explored marine science and its application in
Qatar. Mr Wright talked about his training and career, and
explained the importance of understanding the marine environment
and using that knowledge to create a sustainable future for Qatar.
The presentation covered Jonathan’s experience in environmental
monitoring services at Hamad International Airport. He also
demonstrated the equipment used on environmental expeditions deep
in the seas surrounding Qatar.
Sherborne Qatar’s Enterprise will host
professionals from different careers who will come to talk to the
children about what is involved in their roles. Children are
encouraged to experience the world of work with excursions and
visits to offices. As part of the academic curriculum, children
will create resumes and role play interviews for careers, pick an
idea they wish to pursue, and design business plans around it.

architecture and environmental consulting companies, with more than
8500 professionals across the globe. With a 13-strong team of
