Location
All ASAs are located on campus. Please see schedule for exact location.
 
Deadlines
Please respect deadlines. If you miss deadlines, ASA registration will not be guaranteed and your children will not be able to participate in ASAs.
 
Equipment / Attire
Every child is expected to come to every lesson with the appropriate attire and equipment. Failure to do so will result in the child not being accepted in the ASA.
This is especially true for sports ASAs for which children need to have their sports clothes and shoes. Children are allowed to wear their SISD sports uniform on days they have sports ASAs.
 
Attendance / Punctuality
Every child is expected to attend every lesson of the semester and to be there on time. In case of an emergency, students/parents are expected to let the ASA Department and the teachers know.
 
Rules and Regulations
Failure to follow the ASA rules and regulations and the teachers’ / external providers’ policies might jeopardize the right of a child to participate in after-school activities.

For any further information, please download the ASA Parents Handbook or contact our Head of After-School Activities Benjamin Cassaigne at benjamin.cassaigne@sisd.ae
