Welcome to our DAA Parent Community 

#DAAPA #Togetherwecan

Parent Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast

Thank you to our lovely parent volunteers that were able to join us for a wonderful morning gathering. We are so very thankful for your help!

Coffee Mornings

We are planning in-person, Divisional Coffee Mornings. Details with dates, times and venues will be communicated through your grade level WhatsApp groups, where you can confirm your attendance.

Middle School Coffee Morning:

Middle School is kickstarting the coffee mornings! Since the weather is gorgeous, we are planning for an outdoor Middle School divisional gathering.

Date: Monday, February 21st

Time: 8:30 am

Further details to be announced on your grade level WhatsApp groups. Confirmations will be made through the link shared on these groups.

International Food Festival

Much to our disappointment, we have decided to cancel our beloved IFF event this year. Due to current restrictions still in place around food service, it would be difficult for many of our country groups to offer food in accordance with the new guidelines.

However, in order to bring some fun and festivities to our campus, we will replace it with a Spring Bazaar, similar to the Winter Bazaar held in December.

Spring Bazaar:

Following the successful Winter Bazaar, we will be running the bazaar for 2 days! The dates for this event are March 10th and 11th, all day during school hours, in the covered area in front of school. March 11th is a Friday, however the Bazaar will be open until 3:00 pm.

DAAPA will be renting tables again, so if you are interested, please reach out to us at daaparentconnect@gmail.com.

Parent Workshops

We are planning 2 Parent Workshops over the next few weeks. The first one is for Middle and High School - see details below. The second one is for all divisions and the details will be shared in the next edition of SPOTS.

A WhatsApp group will be created and a link will be shared on the grade level WhatsApp groups for parents to confirm their attendance.

DAAPA is planning a free Parent Workshop, courtesy of Ostaz, an EdTech startup, part of the UK-based Inspired Education Group. Their educational consultants have designed a set of Workshops that address the needs and challenges of parents. For more information about Ostaz, you can visit their website: www.ostaz.com

For this Workshop, we will be diving into "Goal Setting" with the help of life coach, Maya Hawa. The outcome of this Workshop is designed to give you an understanding of what is needed in order for you to achieve your goals. This Workshop invited everyone who is searching to get more structure and to achieve their goals. Skills learned can also be used to help our children achieve their own goals. 

The Workshop will take place on February 28th from 9:00 - 12:00, in-person in Media City.

**There is a 25 person minimum / 40 person maximum for capacity of the venue. If you would like to register for this Workshop, please look out for the WhatsApp group link that will be sent to you specific grade level group and register as soon as possible.**
