TeachMeet2: Educators Together – May 2024

TeachMeet2: Educators Together – May 2024 by Miss Emma

TeachMeet 1 Bahrain 2024, was a resounding success bringing together over 150 passionate educators from various settings around the Kingdom of Bahrain. This first event happened back In February! Fast forward to May 28th 2024 and we just welcomed over 250 educators for TeachMeet 2 Bahrain. This time, the event theme was Technology for Learning and Educational Philosophy.

On Tuesday 28th May, the second TeachMeet was proudly hosted again at our new, state-of-the-art campus in Dilmunia. Attendees were warmly welcomed, representing universities, public/private schools, and Early Years settings. This event was once again designed to positively impact the professional development, student learning, and education across the entire country under the vision:


To bring passionate Educators together for the benefit of all students





We are thrilled to host another TeachMeet here at Nadeen school, with twice as many participants, more workshops, and fostering wider discussions about pedagogy, these events continue to have a positive impact on all educators across the Kingdom of Bahrain. It is vital for education to create an inclusive platform to bring everyone together to then in turn make a difference to all students in all schools.

by Dr Paul Walton, Principal (Nadeen School)


The evening format included main stage presentations to solidify the relationship between schools and to continue to pledge for this ongoing series of events. This was followed by guest speakers, workshop leaders, and facilitators, networking sessions, gifts for attendees, donated prizes from businesses, and an award ceremony. Themes for the speeches and workshops ranged from Collaborative Learning Strategies, Metacognition, Transforming Sustainability Lessons Using Technology, Empowering Students with AI Tools, and much more!

This was another excellent opportunity to invite all educators from around the country, bringing everyone together to improve education for all students in Bahrain. It was also a welcomed opportunity for the continued growth of a network of collaborators who are passionate about quality and forward-thinking education.



The feedback from this second event has been overwhelmingly positive with continued comments on the quality of the presentations, workshops, and the impressive building facilities. Having a purpose-built school campus undoubtedly supported us in growing this exciting event with the use of the Performance Theatre, classrooms, breakout rooms, and other areas. This provided many opportunities to share best practice, connect with others, and foster a passionate network of teachers moving forward.


Attending the TeachMeet at Nadeen School created the opportunity to hear from a range of different people I wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to hear perspectives from. It was so valuable to hear from a range of ideas and experiences. This is especially important in a profession such as teaching.

This event would not have been possible without the commitment, desire, and energy of the participants who created such a warm and productive environment in which to work, collaborate, and learn together. This dialogue and facilitation would not have been possible without our speakers and workshop leaders and we express our deep gratitude to all of the contributing schools. Thank you to the educators from Nadeen School, St Christopher’s School, Naseem International School, Beacon Private School, and Riffa Views International School.


It’s been fantastic to be involved in both TeachMeet1 and TeachMeet2 as a workshop leader, getting to share experiences with colleagues from across Bahrain and gather insights related to one of my areas of passion – sustainability education. There’s so much professional knowledge and experience on this island and I love how we can collaborate to support the education of all students.

Of course, to end the evening with a fun prize draw to thank all of the educators in attendance for the work they do for the students of Bahrain, would not have been possible without our sponsors! Thank you to:

The Diplomat Radisson Blu, Downtown Rotana, Majestic Arjan by Rotana, Reef Boutique Hotel, Bushido by Buddha Bar, and Vida Beach Resort. 

We look forward to future events and collaborating with more schools in the Kingdom of Bahrain and possibly beyond! We look forward to where the future of these events can take education!
