After-School Activities | Private School Dubai | SISD

After-School Activities

We believe that After-School Activities are meant to take kids beyond their limits: “accept your limits, then go beyond them.” ASAs allow students to learn many different skills, let them be physical, artistic, creative, cultural or scientific.

We aim to provide engaging activities and clubs tailored to meet the needs of each year group, all of them supporting and transmitting our core values. Students are able to choose from a wide range of activities offered daily.

All our providers have been selected for their recognized professionalism, experience, and passion for the subject they teach.

Internal After-School Activities (ASAs) are taught by SISD teachers and are free of charge (in some cases, some fees might apply for equipment)

Each student is allowed to participate in 2 Internal ASAs per week (After-school care is not included in this quota).

Early Years: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Primary: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Secondary: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

Challenging young people to find their purpose, passion and place in the world.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a global framework for non-formal education and learning, which challenges young people to dream big, celebrate their achievements and make a difference in their world. Through developing universal and transferable skills, increasing their fitness levels, cultivating a sense of adventure and volunteering in their community, the Award inspires young people to take control, make their own choices and build their own unique programmes, helping them to find their purpose, passion and place in the world.

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.
