Dear DAA Middle School Families,
after school activities
Term 2 ASA and Lunch Activities are off to a great start. Ms. Eversteyn, Mr. Murphy and Ms. Ambrocio are running an ASA for the Art competition held by the Emirate Environment Group. The 12-14 year old category is “How are you personally contributing to a more sustainable world?” There is great industry and verve from our team of students, seen above.
Week without walls
All our trips are being finalized and students and teachers are excited for the upcoming week and the experiences that have been prepared for them! Trip leaders will be sending daily updates from each of the trips so you can keep track of what our students are up to this week! Trip leaders have shared their method of communication with families already, so if you’re unsure, please ask your child to contact their leader. In the event of an emergency, please contact one of the Middle School Administrators at +971 52 105 4944 or call the middle school office at +971 4 704 9722.
As mentioned in the previous edition, from March 7th, students will need to use their Student ID to pay for food in the cafeteria, otherwise they will not be permitted to purchase food. This will help with the efficiency of the lunch line and help maintain safety with COVID. Please see the pertinent details below:
safer internet week
As part of our Middle School Safer Internet Week students have submitted a number of great video entries for Positive TikTok Trends. Our Learning Intention was to create videos that would generate a positive impact on our community. As you will see from the mixtape, many students felt recycling and environmental causes were the top priority. Here’s a link to the mixtape.
world poetry day competition
The Middle School Fine Arts department is delighted to present the talented and creative artworks from our grade 6 Quarter 2, and Semester 1, Grades 7 and 8 student’s Unit 2 projects. Currently the actual artworks are displayed in the commons area and on the screens around the school, but so the wider DAA community can view the artworks we have created this digital exhibition for you. We hope you enjoy. Congratulations to all of our students for making this happen.

If you are still having technical troubles, please make sure to raise a ticket if the teacher is unable to help your child with a fix. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will help resolve the issue.
legally blonde the musical
The Middle and High School are very excited to perform ‘Legally Blonde the Musical’ to the DAA community in less than two weeks time. With a cast and crew of 90 students, this very popular movie transformed onto the stage is not one to be missed. The story follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Action-packed and exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances - this musical is so much fun!
