The Athletic and Activities Department would like to take this time to wish everyone a very restful and relaxing holiday and that you come back eager and enthusiastic to start the New Year. Thank you to all the coaches and students who took part in our abbreviated program and we look forward to what’s to come in 2021.

 On Sunday December 6th the DAA Athletics and Activities Department took part in a Zoom call with the Dubai Sports Council, KHDA, ESM, Twedex and over 70 schools in Dubai to discuss the “Return of Sport in Dubai”. The group outlined a series of plans that will begin in January 2021. Our school has registered its interest in participating in this program. A follow-up Zoom Call will take place later in December or in early

January. This has been an interesting development, and we will be following this very closely over the holiday. Second to that development we have applied to KHDA for a full return to our sporting program to start in January and we are awaiting for final approval. Please find a link to the tentative plan here, if we receive final KHDA approval a more detailed plan, schedule and procedures will be sent out to the community upon our return to school in the New Year.   

Enjoy your holidays and Go Leopards!
