HER Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Hamad bin Suhaim al Thani, wife of His Highness the Amir, patronised the graduation ceremony of Qatar University’s (QU) 42nd batch of more than 400 distinguished female students. The ceremony was held at QU Sports and Events Complex on Tuesday.
The graduation ceremony was attended by a number of their excellencies sheikhs and ministers, along with members of the university’s administration and faculty, students, parents and guests of the university.
In his speech on the occasion, President of QU Dr Hassan bin Rashid al Derham said, “It is our right — as we celebrate the 42nd batch of graduates of female Qatar University students — to say, we are not only celebrating our daughters the graduates. Rather, we celebrate and take pride in the recognition, honour and pride extended to half of society by our blessed nation and faithful Qatari society. Our Qatari society has not forgotten the mother that raises, the sister that struggles and labours, and the daughter that aspires to see a prosperous future.”
He added, “Our celebration today, is in recognition of the fact that women have a stake, any stake, in our beloved country. Women are the nation’s capital, the beating heart, and cherished by us and by our model leadership. For this, distinguished guests, allow me to say, we are proud of what this university has offered, and what it continues to offer. Since the university’s founding over four decades ago, and till today, it has been a leading force in the contribution of knowledge and expertise and in the push to advance and develop our nation Qatar.
“What warms our hearts, and brings us optimism, is what we are witnessing today, the pioneering intellectual Qatari women as she emerges from the university steps, armed with knowledge, generosity, righteousness and loyalty to her country. You allow this nation to stand tall and give it hope.”
Addressing the graduating female students of Class of 2019, he remarked: “Education is a path we walk on, not a goal we reach. Qatar University is not merely a passing stage in your respective journeys, but rather, it is a starting point and a reference for knowledge. The university’s professors and researchers in all subjects are here to serve you, whenever you seek to learn and educate yourselves.”
Noor al Mashhadany, a graduate from the Class of 2019, said on behalf of her class, “It is a great honour to be here today, together, as we celebrate the graduation of a number of distinguished graduates from various colleges. We have faith in today’s graduates that they are able to develop in all fields and contribute to realisation of Qatar National Vision 2030.”
Another distinguished graduate, Aisha Khalid al Mulla, said, “Education is, and will continue to be, the foundation on which societies and nations are built. Education is the vessel in which to build a distinct society with a distinct mind and it is a weapon against corruption. This is what led our leadership to focus on education and position it as a central pillar in the Qatar National Vision 2030.”
