Happy Thursday!

Keeping Active with Athletics

Active and healthy living is important for a child’s physical and mental health and we are very proud of the athletics we offer in Elementary at Dubai American Academy. Whether it is our vigorous Physical Education lessons that focus on skill development and engagement or our wonderful array of active after-school offerings, we value the pursuit of developing life-long active and healthy students.

One aspect of our PE program that we take great pride in is our weekly Swimming Program. Here in Dubai we live in an area plentiful in beaches and swimming pools so having the opportunity to quickly develop the swimming skills and stamina of our little ones is very important. In swimming, practice makes progress. With that we want to share a few points about our Swimming Program.

Sports Day

Sports Day

On Wednesday our Athletics Staff hosted Sports Day events for our KG1 and KG2 students and Grade 1 and Grade 2 students. It was a magical day and we appreciated so many parents out to cheer on their children. The smiles and energy of the students was wonderful and will be a day they will not forget. We are very appreciative of the efforts of the Athletics Staff, Teachers, Educational Assistants and DAAPA who made it a fantastic day for our little leopards.

As always, thank you for your continued support of our great school and have a brilliant weekend.
