ISLQ_CLEAN__MARINA__EVENT1April 12, 2016 – Doha, Qatar: Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City, Doha’s premier yachting destination, recently welcomed students from ISL Qatar (International School of London Qatar) to support the schools’ community service program initiative, which emphasizes on the environment preservation.

The students, accompanied by their teachers, were welcomed by the Mourjan Marinas- Lusail City team, which provided an overview of the marina’s rules, regulations and operations, and emphasized on marinas’ environmental consciousness with reference to the floating mangroves project underway at the marina.

The marina team also discussed safety issues related to working near or over water, before distributing personal protective equipment to them, which included life vests, gloves, caps and sunscreen, as well as the tools required to clean up the facilities. The students collected waste from the sea, including plastic bottles, and they used the Quick Response Fire Cart to clean-up the rocks; by that, they were taught how to manage the force of the water during an emergency.

Wayne Shepherd, General Manager of Mourjan Marinas commented, “We were very pleased to welcome the students from ISL Qatar at our marina. It’s always great to see the younger generation taking part in an initiative that helps build their environmental awareness, and it’s been a pleasure seeing how eager they are to learn and help.”

The International School of London Group is a culturally diverse community which fosters a passion and enthusiasm for learning, through outstanding educational practices. The schools’ ‘’celebrate earth’’ initiative aims to create awareness on their students about the importance of maintaining the environment clean.

Built within the stunning Lusail City, a meticulously planned urban development, Mourjan Marinas – Lusail City is ideally located along the coast, just north of Doha’s central business district. The marina is also within easy reach of the Al Khor expressway, and guests and visitors will find easy access to nearby premier hotels.
