BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop)

At SEK International School Qatar we are proud to have a BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) programme starting from Grade 4 till Grade 12. Integrating technology into everyday school life is the foundation of SEK-Qatar as a Microsoft Showcase School and in supporting the delivery of 21st century learning.

From the first day of school, students are expected to work with their own laptop to facilitate an outstanding learning experience.

 

After years of experience, we have learned that it can be challenging to purchase the appropriate device and to receive high quality service.

In order to support our families, we have sourced a reliable, local partner, MANNAI CORPORATION, who we highly recommend for the purchase of our students’ devices. On top of that, we have negotiated special terms for all SEK-Qatar students.

 

Highlights of benefits that are included in the agreement:

  • Next business day on site support – An official technician will come to school and try to fix the device directly at school next day after opening the case.
  • Dedicated service center – During weekends or when the school is closed during holidays, you have the option to bring the device directly to the service center.
  • Extended warranty – The standard 1 year warranty, will be extended to full 3 years
  • Accidental Damage Protection – An insurance will be added to cover any accident, like broken screen or spilled liquid, on the device while in Qatar. For some models, there will be the option to add an international coverage for a small extra fee.

 

Grade 4 to 12

Mannai Corporation will be able provide the following devices:

We have prepared a table to make it easy for you to compare the key features of the devices.

In case you already have a device, please check the technical requirements for each grade:

Please do not hesitate to contact our ICT department ict@sek.qa if you have any questions.

 

PreSchool and/or Grade 1-3

It is not compulsory for PreSchool and/or Grade 1-3 to purchase a device. However, over the past year, online learning has become significantly relevant for even younger students. If you wish to purchase a device for your child enrolled in our PreSchool and/or Grade 1-3 programme, we suggest the following which you will also find on our partner website:

  • Grade 1 to Grade 3: 2-in-1 device with keyboard and stylus.
    • Microsoft Surface Go 2
  • Preschool 3 to Preschool 5 students: Tablet devices ideally with stylus.
    • iPad 8th or iPad Air

TEXTBOOKS AND OTHER EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS

SEK International School Qatar is an IB World School authorized to offer three IB Programmes – the Primary Years Programme (PYP) the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP).

Central to the philosophy of the PYP is the principle that purposeful, structured inquiry is a powerful vehicle for learning that promotes meaning and understanding, and challenges students to engage with significant ideas. Therefore, in the PYP there is also a commitment to a concept-driven curriculum as a means of supporting that inquiry.

Consequently, SEK International School Qatar students will be drawing on a variety of sources of knowledge and ideas, some of which may be traditional textbooks.

The School will inform families about the materials their children are using or need for the programme.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

SEK International School Qatar offers a complete range of extracurricular activities, as part of its holistic approach to the intellectual, social and physical development of students.

The mayority of our extracurricular activities are staff led. They vary from year to year depending on teachers’ interests. Choices continue to change and updated information can be found on SchoolsBuddy.
