Welcome Parents to 2021-2022

Welcome to our DAA Parent Community

#DAAPA#Togetherwecan


We hope September has been a good month for you and that everyone is off to a great start to the school year!

Volunteer Groups

As we are hoping to bring some of our favorite events to campus this year, we'd like to invite you to join our divisional volunteer groups where you can find opportunities to get involved.

Our representatives will be sharing information about upcoming events for parents to volunteer and possibly showcase their flair for decorating!

Coffee Mornings

A big thank you to those that joined DAAPA's New Family Zoom Coffee Mornings earlier this month! We hope the information shared has been helpful.

And thank you to our High School parents for attending our Zoom Coffee Morning last week with the High School Leadership Team, for a very informative presentation and Q&A session.

Coming Soon...

Please join us for our Divisional Coffee Mornings with DAAPA and the Elementary and Middle School Leadership Teams and Counselors.

GRADE LEVEL COFFEE MORNINGS...☕️

We are very excited that we’re finally able to plan our long-established and beloved, in-person coffee mornings off campus!

Having already welcomed back our Senior parents at a wonderful coffee morning, we are eager to plan the same for all of our grades.

Some are taking place this month, and others in October. Keep an eye out for information that’s being communicated by our grade reps on the grade WhatsApp groups!!

Parent Whatsapp groups

We hope you’ve been able to join the Parent WhatsApp Groups for your children’s grades.

Given the volume of messages on these groups, please be reminded to respect the group rules. Let us support each other by being mindful of the language used and by sharing information relevant to our school community in a constructive way.

Country and Language Groups

In the spirit of fostering cultural connections, we have created country and language groups to connect parents who share the same nationality or language within the DAA community.


Please find the below link, and note that there are a few new additions!


If you don't see your country group below, please reach out to DAAPA and we'll help you create one!
