To all Leopards,

The last two weeks have seen a flurry of activity as all of our DAA teams were in action. It was great to see our students competing enthusiastically and doing their best to represent DAA in style. Along with our neighbor ASD, we helped organize a min-MESAC event with ACS Abu Dhabi and AS Doha. There were over 300 students and coaches taking part in the sporting weekend. Many of our coaches and student athletes expressed their gratitude to be able to participate as well as connect with others from our MESAC school community. It was a great weekend.

All official Season 3 events and practices have now concluded and we will be looking forward to celebrating our athletes on the following days:

Monday, May 16th

Middle School Season 2 & 3 Celebration

Monday, May 23rd

High School Season 2 & 3 Celebration
