Who is the Parents' Association?
If you are a parent of a NAS Dubai student, you are automatically a member of the NAS Dubai Parents' Association. There are no dues, membership cards, or secret handshakes required.
The mission of the Parents' Association is to make NAS Dubai an even better place for our children by:
• promoting school and community spirit
• supporting student activities
• encouraging parent volunteerism
You are, however, urged and encouraged to give your time, creativity, energy, and enthusiasm to help develop NAS Dubai's memorable student activities and fun family events.
By getting involved with your child’s school, you can help make NAS Dubai an even better place for him/her to learn and grow and find yourself having a whole lot of fun in the process.
What does the Parents' Association do?
MONTHLY PA MEETINGS
The Parents' Association holds informal, informative meetings most months during the school calendar year (usually the first Monday of each month – please see the calendar for dates). These meetings are a great way to get the big picture of what’s going on at NAS Dubai. The agenda typically includes a run-through of upcoming events as well as summaries of past events. It is an open forum for suggestions and planning for future events that will enhance NAS Dubai's community. All are welcome.
PA volunteers help out at social events throughout the school year, including the Welcome Coffee on the first day of school, Autumn BBQ, Christmas Fayre, Spring Carnival as well as at movie nights and sporting fixtures.
MAJOR SCHOOL EVENTS FOR STUDENTS AND PARENTS:
AUTUMN FAMILY BBQ (October)
NAS Dubai's version of Bonfire Night and Halloween all in one, a casual get-together including Halloween fun dressing up, Trunk or Treat, Daredevil Grab with a BBQ provided by the Fat Dads Football Team.
CHRISTMAS FAYRE (December)
