Activities and trips
What sort of school trips do you offer at your school?
We offer a wide variety of educational trips to build cultural awareness, skills such as leadership, communication, academic, and life skills. On some of the trips our students work with local communities where they learn about the world and understand the importance of helping others and improving their lives and learning environment, for example our annual trip to NAE Centre in Tanzania, week long expeditions to Malaysia, Oman, Nepal or Thailand.
Other examples of school trips are: German trip to Austria; university/college trips to UK and USA; the MIT STEAM trips; sports trips such as skiing trip to Verbier in Switxerland, Football trip to UK, Summer Performing Arts with Julliard are also available; and many more.
Our student's safety and wellbeing always come first. Risk assessments are conducted for all trips, and as a parent you will always know who is responsible for your child's care wherever they are. At our school we will have regular and well planned communications with parents, so you will always feel informed.
What is your Sports Programme like?
We pride ourselves in fostering the pursuit of excellence in a sport-for-all environment. NAS Dubai supports boys and girls who compete in many sports from the DASSA (Dubai Affiliated Schools Sports Association) leagues including Football, Rugby, Netball, Cricket, Rounders, Aquathon, Athletics, Basketball and Swimming. The PE department is extremely proud of the fact that we participate in over 500 fixtures over the course of the year from Year 3 to Year 11. An amazing feat which has been accomplished because of our outstanding students, teachers, parents and facilities. This has been recognized by the UAE Sports Teen awards where NAS Dubai was awarded: ‘Best Sport and fittest School’ newcomer.
Do you have a Performing Arts programme?
Yes, we are passionate about all three performing arts and our students experience music, dance and drama as they form an important part of our curriculum from the age of four to iGCSEs when they become subjects of choice. We strongly believe that all three subjects play a curtail role in enabling our students to develop into intelligent, confident and well-rounded global citizens.
Our Performing Arts programme is an integral part of our curriculum and through our collaboration with Juilliard all our students and teachers have a unique opportunity to benefit from their expertise and resources.
Through our NAS Dubai Music Academy optional programme all students are encouraged to play an instrument.
We have a large number of school performances such as Oliver, Grease, Jungle Book, Under the Sea, Aladdin, to name a few.
Do you have after school activities?
With over 100 co-curricular activities available across all phases of the school, students can choose their own path and explore their interests. Our wide-ranging extra-curricular programme allows your child to discover activities that excite and inspire them. Every year we try to provide new activities to meet the desires and varied interests of our student body, and these are changed and selected each term. In addition to activities provided by the school we have a full range of externally provided activities that can satisfy all interests.
